Mount Marty def. Dordt 4-0
The Mount Marty Lancers shut out the Dordt Defenders in game one of their doubleheader on Monday night in Sioux Center. The games were originally scheduled to be played on Tuesday but were moved due to an unfavorable forecast.
The Lancers scored two in the first with two outs, benefitting from a wind blown single in the process and the visitors scored the two runs on three hits.
The Lancers added a run in the second and another in the sixth for their four runs.
Dordt’s best chance came in the fifth inning when Hannah Sikkema singled to lead off the inning and advanced on a sacrifice bunt. Becky Pedersen worked for a walk but the next two batters were retired by strikeout to end the threat.
Sikkema’s single was the only hit of the game for the Defenders.
Abby Kraemer pitched and took the loss and was charged with four runs on seven hits and walked five with three strikeouts.
Dordt was issued three walks and Becky Pedersen had two of them.
Mount Marty’s Maureena Vornhagen got the pitching win and struck out 12 with one hit surrendered and she walked three.
