The Oskaloosa softball team has continued their hot start to the season. The Indians swept Washington in non-conference play Tuesday by scores of 6-3 and 9-0.
In the first game, Kylee Silliman pitched well, allowing only five hits and three runs while striking out 15 and only walking one.
She got plenty of offensive support from her teammates, as Alexis Westercamp and Devan Welch would hit solo home runs. Anna Jones went 3 for 4 and Silliman helped herself out with a 2 for 4 night with 2 RBI.
In the second game, Alexis Groet continued her recent roll, as she struck out 13 batters and walked only one in a two-hit shutout.
Offensively, the Indians again came through in the 9-0 blowout. Westercamp would lead the way with three hits and 2 RBI, but Devan Welch again had the big blow. She hit another solo home run, her second of the night and third in as many games (she hit a homer against Grinnell on Monday).
Ashley Kindley, Josie Bunnell, Anna Jones, Kylee Silliman, Aubrey Miller, and Alexis Vroegh would all record a hit in the game as well.
Oskaloosa softball is now 9-1 on the season to match the baseball team, and they have a huge test at home Wednesday night. The three-time defending state champions in Class 4A Dallas Center-Grimes will be coming to town for a single varsity game. Dallas Center-Grimes not only has won the last three state titles in Class 4A, but they are also currently ranked #1 in the state according to the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union.
You can hear that varsity game live on 99.5 FM/740 AM KMZN, the KMZN mobile app, and radiokmzn.com. The first pitch is following the JV game around 7:30 PM. The pregame show will be around 7:15 PM on KMZN. The JV game begins around 6 PM for the girls in what should be a fun and busy night at the Oskaloosa Baseball and Softball Complex.
