Unlucky usually means things go against you. One can always circumvent luck, be “unlucky” by simply being good. Young Chatfield softball is now an unlucky 13-0. Carissa Campbell’s 3-run home run capped a 23-1 five inning win over R-P. McKenna Daniels (3 IP, 5 K, 3 BB, 1 ER, Win (4-0)) and Megan Cullen (2 IP, 2 K, 1 BB) didn’t surrender a hit. Eleven different Gophers scored. Belle Berg was 4-for-5 (3B, 4 R, RBI). Campbell (3-4, HR, 2 R), Lexi Chase (2-4, 3 R), Eryn Radcliff (2-4, 2B, 2 R) and Carlie Berge (2-3, two 2B, 3 R) had three RBI. Gopher hitting then struggled versus Southland’s slow pitching. The game saw six 1-2-3 frames. Chatfield escaped 3-2. Shelby Isensee (2-3) and Radcliff had RBI-doubles. Berge (5 1/3 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 9 K, 2-3, R) got the win (4-0). The Chatfield beat Southland 14-0 in April. Rebels lost to R-P a night previously (first Trojan win). Gopher offense was then normal versus FC/L. Batters one thru nine all scored in the first. Daniels’ team-leading fourth home run, a grand slam, was the biggest hit. Campbell hit her third dinger, a 3-run shot that invoked the fourth-inning 15-run rule. Chatfield prevailed 18-1. Daniels (2-3, HR, 2 R), Campbell (2-3, 2B, HR, R), and Chase (3-3, 2B, 2 R, 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 7 K, Win (4-0)) had four RBI. The #3 in AA Gophers (13-0) control the TRC West over GMLOK (10-3).
