Mock, Rockets make quick work of Century

DeAnna Mock pitched a four-hit shutout as Rochester John Marshall rolled past Century 11-0 in Big Nine softball on Monday.

The host Rockets also wrapped out 10 hits and scored all its runs in the first three innings in the five-inning affair.

"It was nice to get our bats going tonight and see the girls aggressive at the plate," JM coach Thang Nguyen said.

Kristen Herges was 3-for-3 with a double, triple, two RBIs and two runs scored for the Rockets.

Freshman Kristen Thelen was 2-for-3 with an RBI and two runs. Monica Walter and Michelle Amundson were both 1-for-2 with two RBIs. Walter hit a two-run double in the first inning.


Mock struck out six in posting her first shutout of the season.

Eagles struggle

That was a game the Rochester Lourdes softball team would like to forget.

The Eagles allowed 17 hits to Cannon Falls and committed three errors as they fell 11-4 in the Hiawatha Valley League game Monday at Soldiers Field.

"It was a make-up game, and we just didn’t have a very good night," Lourdes coach Doc Johnson said.

The Eagles were led by Courtney Miller with three hits, including a double and an RBI. Amber Frie and Kristie Mueller each had two hits.

Tessa Thompson had three hits for Cannon Falls, scored four runs and had three RBIs.

The Eagles play at Lake City at 5 p.m. today.
