Madison softball rolled over Austin 13-3 on Thursday to post the first win of the Tim Torrance coaching era at Madison.
The Cubs scored in every inning of the five-inning contest and pushed across five runs in the fifth to end the game early.
Madison collected 10 hits in the game with sophomore Cambryin Mann swinging the big bat, going 4-for-4 with two doubles, three RBIs and four runs scored. Lexi Sullivan was 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored, Molly Armbrecht had two hits and scored three times, Patty Johnson had a hit and three RBIs, and Immigin Mann had a hit and drove in two runs. Keara Eder did not get a hit, but had two RBIs and scored three runs.
Freshman Kallie Eder started in the circle and picked up the win. Eder struck out two and walked five in three scoreless innings while allowing only one hit.
On Wednesday, Immigin Mann pitched well enough to win but the Cubs couldn’t provide enough offense in a 2-1 loss at Greensburg.
Mann, a senior, struck out nine and walked three while allowing just two earned runs on four hits in six innings in the circle. But Madison’s hitters managed just three hits and struck out 13 times against Greensburg freshman hurler Hermione Robinson.
“We didn’t play too bad but 13 strikeouts will not win us many games,” Torrance said. “We have room for much improvement.”
Cambryin Mann, Immigin’s younger sister, had two doubles to lead Madison’s offense while Keara Eder had a hit and scored a run. Immigin Mann also had an RBI.
Madison, now 1-1, opened play in the Corydon Central Tournament on Friday. The tournament continues today.
