Red Wing’s bid for a comeback victory was cut short Tuesday as the Wingers fell 5-4 at home to Chaska.
The Wingers trailed 5-3 heading into the final inning. With the bases loaded, Jenna Wright flew out to right field to end the game. The tying run was on third base.
“I think it shows a lot of drive and determination (to be down) 5-3 and come back and almost win,” Red Wing pitcher Andrea Northey said.
Red Wing pounded out 11 hits and saw production from the top and bottom of the lineup.
“It was nice to see the hits coming from throughout the lineup this time, instead of (like Monday when) we got them all from the top of our order,” Red Wing coach Cheryl Borgen said.
Tesha Buck, the No. 2 hitter, went 3-for-4 with three doubles and two runs scored. Northey tallied three hits and one RBI from the three-hole. Wright, the No. 7 hitter, went 2-3 with a walk.
Errors continue to plague the Wingers. They tallied eight in the Missota Conference tilt.
Red Wing (1-2 overall, 0-2 Missota) plays host to New Prague on Thursday.
