Rainier ace Bailey Elwell tossed an eight-strikeout one-hitter across three innings as Rainier romped to a 14-1 victory in four innings over Wahkiakum at home on Monday.
The Mountaineers (3-1) rebounded from their first loss of the season last Wednesday to Onalaska by hammering nine hits against the Mules. Alyssa Lofgren led with three hits while Miah Reynolds added two and Raychel Hansen drove in two runs. Reynolds struckout one in ⅔ of an inning in relief.
“This is the first time in years that Rainier has been so competitive,” Rainier coach Kyle Greenwood said. “It’s good. It’s nice to get another win… the girls played really well and the chatter is translating into confidence.”
Rainier hosts Toledo (3-1) on Thursday.
