Softball: Scappoose blows out Clatskanie 22-3
Indians score 21 runs in three innings
Scappoose took advantage of 14 errors to score 21 runs in three innings in a 22-3 win over Clatskanie on Wednesday evening.
The Indians (4-1) didn't take long at all to capitalize on a Clatskanie mistake, as Jessie Dykes reached first base on an error in center field. Nicole Lukinbeal batted Dykes home minutes later to give Scappoose a 1-0 lead. A two-out single from Dykes drove home Julia Ferguson, capping the Indians' first-inning scoring at six runs.
Scappoose struck again in the top of the second, getting a three-run triple from Dykes to score Ferguson, Ashely MacInnis and Hadley Enos, giving the Indians a 12-0 lead. Lukinbeal and Gabie Kreuger hit back-to-back RBI singles, scoring another pair of runs and pushing Scappoose's lead to 14-0.
The Tigers finally got on the board in the bottom of the second on a home run from freshman Olivia Warren, but Scappoose pounded home seven more runs in the top of the third, capped by a two-run single from Galey, who scored on an error in center field minutes later to extend the Indians' advantage to 21-1.
A two-run homer from Sage Miller in the bottom half of the third inning once again kept the offense moving for Clastkanie, but the Tigers had long been in the Indians' rear-view mirror. Scappoose closed the scoring as Galey scored on yet another error in the top of the fourth for the final 19-run margin.
Dykes led the Indian offense with four RBIs, and was 3-6 at the plate with no strikeouts. Krueger had four hits on five trips to the plate, driving home two runs and scoring two herself. Galey scored four times with one hit, two RBIs and a walk.
Ferguson and Kendal Bailey combined for the five-inning victory from the pitcher's circle.
Up next, Scappoose will host Corbett on Friday, April 10 at 4:30 p.m.
