Playing neck-and-neck with Ocosta and hanging around for most of the game, the Onalaska softball team couldn’t put any runs across and gave up a couple runs in the sixth inning that put the game out of reach in a 4-0 loss Wednesday afternoon.
The Loggers let one get across in the fourth inning, and with the bases loaded in the sixth, head coach Rich Teitzel said he made a poor call on a 1-2 count with two outs that led to a bases-clearing triple late in the game.
“That one is on me, three of those runs are on me for calling the wrong pitch there,” Teitzel said. “They played well tonight, we kept our errors down. They’re settling in like I said, the last couple of games we’ve graduated a bit and settled in. Both pitchers threw really well.”
For her part, Logger starter Lisa Liddell threw a complete game with seven strikeouts and just three earned runs on four walks and five hits allowed. Desi Smith went 2 for 3 at the plate with a triple and Liddell also smacked a double on a 1 for 2 day.
Onalaska takes on Toledo with a little over a week off next Thursday for a league contest in its next game.
