ESTACADA Corbetts softball team climbed the ladder a division and scored a 3-0 shutout over 4A Estacada on Monday afternoon to remain unbeaten as it heads into spring break.
The Cardinals broke up a scoreless game in the third inning when Lindsay Miller punched a two-out RBI-triple through the middle of the infield. The ball found a little extra space when the Rangers chose to play an outfielder short after a player was injured during pre-game warm-ups.
Corbetts Kaylyn Hooley followed with an RBI-double that dropped inches inside the right-field line.
The Cardinals broke the game open in the sixth inning when they put their first four hitters on base. A series of RBI-singles moved the score to 8-0 when a collision at first base left players from each side rolling on the turf. Estacadas Bailey Hill suffered a head injury on the play, leaving the Rangers two players short and prompting the umpire to call the game short.
The Cardinals host Colton at 11 a.m. Wednesday and face Stevenson in a doubleheader at 3 p.m. Friday.
