NORTHWESTERN 7, LAFAYETTE JEFF 2

The Purple Tigers (3-1) won their third straight, all of which have come on the road.

Crystal Metz continued her steady work in the circle, tossing a complete-game three-hitter with five strikeouts and one walk. Neither run was earned.

Kelsey Richards had an RBI single in the first. Kindra Gingerich swatted a two-RBI double in the second. Kaitlyn Catron added an RBI single in the third, and Metz helped her own cause with an RBI, sacrifice fly in the seventh.

Gingerich and Richards were both 2-for-4 at the plate on the day.

“I’m really proud of the girls on the infield,” NW coach Jordan Dyer said. “We started out a little rough. They got their runs in the first and second innings off our mistakes. But, all of them bounced back and got settled down a little bit. They really recovered well. Gingerich made some good catches in center on flyouts that Jeff got ahold of. Metz moved the ball well. She only had five strikeouts, but we had quite a few putouts behind her. So, all-round it was a very good day for the team.”

Western 20, Wabash 0, 5 innings

Lexy Sanders, Cali Shepherd and Brooke Strunk combined for a five-hit shut out as the Panthers (3-0) shut out the Apaches.

Sanders, who was the winning pitcher, allowed one hit and one walk with four strikeouts. Shepherd gave up one hit, and struck out one, and Strunk finished the game with two strikeouts.

Strunk also led at the plate with three singles and a double with four RBIs. Jenna Wiechmann added two singles, a double and two RBIs. Kiersten Durbin contributed with two singles and two RBIs, and Abby Renken added two singles.

“It was a good game,” Western coach Jim Clouse said. “We got all 16 players in, and a good way to head into next week.”

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
