One run was all that touched the plate for the Wartburg Knights in Saturday’s doubleheader with the Central softball team. The Dutch took advantage of four Wartburg errors in game one while walloping 13 hits in a 9 – 1 rout of their Iowa Conference foes. Catcher Katie Canney went 2-for-3 at the dish and drove in four runs while Mallory Schulenberg went four innings and gave up just one run to improve her record to 8 – 3. Central finished the job in the nightcap with an 8 – 0 win in game two. Pitcher Trisha Smith stayed perfect on the year with a one-hit shutout of the Knights. Central improves to 20 – 4 on the year and they are 2 – 0 in league play. You can listen to today’s doubleheader live on KNIAKRLS.com with Trevor Castle on the call.
