Triton Softball Sweeps Big Bend

Hailey Malakowsi delivers a pitch Tuesday

LYNNWOOD – The EdCC softball team swept visiting Big Bend in a non-league twinbill at Triton Field Tuesday, 5-4 and 7-3. With the two triumphs the Tritons snap a three-game skid and improve to 5-3 overall.

Things were looking bad for Edmonds in the opener after the Vikings took a 4-0 lead, scoring twice in both the fourth and sixth innings. 

The Tritons responded with a 5-run home half of the sixth, however. Kamryn Kanae got the offense going by smashing a solo homer to left field. Tia Hedman walked with pinch runner Kelsey Quibilan swiping second base. Bailee Senner followed with a RBI triple and was driven home by a single from Clara Inovejas.

After an out was recorded, Kristina West was hit by a pitch to put runners on first and second. Regan Ingersoll came through with a RBI single to even the score at 4-4. A sac fly from Hannah Wilcox plated West for the fifth and final run of the game.

The Tritons outhit the Vikings 9-5 in the opener with Paige Matsuki, Ingersoll and Kanae with two hits apiece.

Earning the win was Madison Budnick (1-0) who tossed three frames of relief in which she allowed two runs on three hits. Hailey Malakowski started for Edmonds and lasted four innings.

Olivia Harrison (0-2) was hung with the loss for Big Bend. She worked out of a few threats until the Tritons got to her in the sixth.

Edmonds collected 11 hits to seven from Big Bend in the nightcap. Both teams scored two runs in the first inning. The first three Tritons, Inovejas, West and Ingersoll had hits with Ingersoll and Kanae both driving in runs.

The Tritons scored three times in the third, highlighted by a mammoth two-run homer from Madison Wood. Hedman singled in Matsuki for the third run of the frame.

The Vikings got a run closer in the sixth, but Edmonds responded with two runs of their own in the bottom of the innings. Chantel Brown laced a liner to right center and raced around the bases for an inside-the-park round tripper. Matsuki drove in the final run of the inning and the game with a single.

Malakowski (4-3) went the distance, yielding three runs on seven hits. Shayla Baker (1-2) was hung with the loss for Big Bend (1-5).

Inovejas led EdCC with three hits with Matsuki going 2-for-4.

The Tritons will travel to Clark College this coming Saturday for a doubleheader that starts at 1 p.m.
