Union (Wash.) softball squeezes Scappoose
Indians force 4-4 tie in sixth, Titans get away in seventh
Scappoose tied it up in the sixth inning of Friday's home opener, but sophomore Maleya Burns and Union (Camas, Wash.) got away.
The Titans survived 5-4.
Union's Morgan Spieth launched a solo home run on the second pitch of the game, Alexis Staton came home on an errant throw to second and Anna Aguon scored on a putout to first, but the Indians (0-1 overall) regrouped.
Gabie Kreuger's double put Scappoose on the board in the second.
Aguon scored on Burns' double for Union (1-0) in the third, but Hannah Galey's double plated Nicole Lukinbeal.
Lukinbeal's double brought Ashley MacInnis around in the Titans fifth and Kreuger's double scored Sage Harrison to force a 4-4 tie in the sixth, but Burns' groundout scored Aguon in the seventh.
Union collected three outs in the bottom of the seventh.
"We made mental errors, which cost us those runs," Indians coach Cijay Koler said. "It was our first game after getting outside for two days."
Scappoose is scheduled to play in the Bend Tournament on Monday and Tuesday.
