Softball: Park cruises by Eden Prairie
At this rate, Park's Wolfpack is probably OK with the outdoor season being delayed.
Park won a second straight indoor romp Monday, following up a 23-0 season-opening win with a 10-0 shutout of host Eden Prairie to move to 2-0 on the young season.
Playing indoors at Eden Prairie High School, the Wolfpack got superior pitching and hitting to claim the non-conference win.
Park sophomore pitcher Sam Fohrman and junior Bryanna Olson combined for a three-hit shutout. Fohrman started and earned the win on the mound, collecting six strikeouts while allowing three hits. Olson came in in relief and didn't allow a hit in three innings of work.
"Sam and Brio threw really well," said Park head coach Bob Loshek. "Lights out. Everything was working for Sam and the same with Bryanna."
Meanwhile, Park pounded Eden Prairie pitching for 13 hits.
Riley Perryman went 3-for-3 with a double and drove in two runs. Shelby Schabacker was 2-for-2 with two RBIs. Saren Crocker was 2-for-3 with a double and 3 RBIs.
"The hitters just got after it," Losehk said, "and we made some really good adjustments."
Park's other two scheduled games this week, against Woodbury and Forest Lake, won't be played because of the weather. But the Wolfpack have a third indoor game on deck, playing LeSueur-Henderson Saturday, April 14, in the Packer Dome in Austin.
