Too many free passes to first base for the opposition were more than the Pella Christian softball team could overcome on Tuesday night, as they were defeated 6-4 by Albia.
The Lady Eagles actually out-hit the Lady Dees 6-to-3, but Albia drew eight walks and had a batter hit by a pitch four times. Despite struggling with control at times, Pella Christian pitcher Paige Blom still had ten strikeouts in the game.
Morgan Blom led the Lady Eagles at the plate, going 2-for-3 as the only player with multiple hits. The loss drops the Pella Christian softball team to 1-2 overall.
They are in Knoxville tonight to face the Panthers in a game that will be broadcast live on AM 1320 and streamed live at www.kniakrls.com with Derek Cardwell providing the call.
