Softball: Raiders have 16-2 season mark
An 8-2 game certainly doesn't sound close. But you'd better believe Monday's 8-2 game between Hastings and Stillwater was just that.
In fact, the game went into extra innings before Hastings scored six runs in the top of the eighth to win its 16th game of the year.
The Raiders got a superb pitching performance from Jenelle Trautmann and some timely hitting to improve their record to 16-2 on the season.
Trautmann struck out 17 over eight innings and walked just two.
