Pitching struggles and continued work on 'meshing together' result in a three-inning loss to Pirates

Struggles on the mound left the Molalla High softball team on the short end of a 25-0 score against Dayton in the Indians' home opener on April 5.

The game ended after three innings due to the run rule. In those three innings, Molalla pitchers allowed 19 walks and gave up 16 hits as the Pirate got rolling early.

"Our pitching struggled to find the strike zone and that ended in a pitching change in the first inning," coach Amanda Bethune said. "We were able to get one player on base, but she was caught stealing second."

On the mound, Kylie Brownlee faced 25 batters, walked 13, struck out one and gave up nine hits. A'Rian Bond faced 18 batters, walked six, struck out one and gave up seven hits.

"Overall, the team is struggling to find where they mesh together, but are working on keeping their heads up, communicating through the entire game and pushing even harder in practice," Bethune said. "We have got to be better and do better and it starts now."
