Sarah Stadem also supplied the Cardinals (2-3, 3-5) with two hits. Stadem capped the scoring for Willmar with a double in a three-run fifth inning, which saw the home team grab a 6-2 lead.

“Our bunting game was right on and our bats were alive,” said Willmar coach Shannon Cayler.

Horning, who issued just two walks and surrendered three earned runs, also doubled in a run in the fifth. Kassy Linbo supplied a double in the Cardinals’ seven-hit attack.

Megan Rudnick and McKenzie Hastad both drove in a run for Willmar, which is at Sartell on Thursday and St. Cloud Apollo on Friday.

Minnewaska 2,

Morris/CA 1

A day after producing 13 runs on 14 hits against Morris/Chokio-Alberta, Minnewaska was limited to four hits, but Madison Phillips outdueled McKenzie Van Batavia to give the Lakers (3-0, 7-2) their second win in as many days against MCA.

Julie Helander’s deep flyball to right and a misplayed groundball allowed Phillips and Lexi Amundson to score for the Lakers in the third.

The two runs were just enough for Phillips to earn another complete-game win. She didn’t walk a batter and struck out three while giving up seven hits. Van Batavia, the hard-luck loser, didn’t give up an earned run, walked two and struck out two.

Van Batavia scored the Tigers’ lone run after singling, stealing second and coming home on Abby Olson’s single in the fourth.
