Minster Softball

The Minster Lady Wildcats gets a massive victory on Monday against the Lady Redskins in their softball game.

The Minster Lady Wildcats are now on an unbelievable 13-game tear after a 5-0 victory over the Wapakoneta softball team on Monday. The Redskins could only find two hits off of Brooklyn Osterloh, while Minster found 6 hits on the night. Meanwhile, the Wildcats scored early in the first inning with a Wapak fielding error, and did not look back.

Before the game, both teams honored Wapakoneta Middle School sixth grader Thomas “Hunter” Burns with the first pitch before the game. Burns suffers primarily from brain-lung-thyroid syndrome (BLTS), and doctors from Dayton Children’s Hospital have been able to use his case for research on the disease. Otherwise, Burns is a regular sixth grader living with his grandfather, and the Redskins gave him the chance to throw out the first pitch.

When the game started, Addison Fisher adorned the rubber, and was able to find eight strikeouts in the seven innings she pitched although allowing five hits. Unfortunately, Fisher was one of a few bright spots for the Redskins defense who let go of three errors, as Minster was able to rack up five runs. Fisher let up a batting average of only 0.222 and an OBS of 0.300, but Wapak could not do much of anything offensively to bring the game back.

The Lady Wildcats were led in the pitching circle by the aforementioned Osterloh, going the distance as well and finding eight strikeouts as well to only two walks and two hits. Minster didn’t commit a single error in the field, making for a tough night with the bats for Wapak. On top of that, the Wildcats found six hits with two finding extra bases and four RBIs, as Minster did not stop the onslaught until the final out.

Minster is now a fantastic 16-1 on the season, and look to keep their win streak alive. Meanwhile, Wapak falls to 9-6 on the year.
