The Wingers tallied 10 hits -- three of which were home runs -- but they fell 8-5 at Chanhassen on Thursday.
"When you have 10 base hits you'd like to think (you'd win)," Red Wing coach Cheryl Borgen said.
Tesha Buck cranked two solo home runs while her teammate Alexa Wasmund hit one as well.
Buck went 4-for-4 with two RBI and two stolen bases while Wasmund was 2-for-3 with two runs scored.
Chanhassen had six hits but reached base via a walk eight more times.
"We had a little trouble with the strike zone today," Borgen said of Red Wing's pitching. "(It was) not a typical day for Andrea (Northey)."
Northey allowed five earned runs while striking out two.
Errors have been Red Wing's Achilles heel, but they only had three in the Missota Conference tilt. Kayla Wallin played second base instead of her usual center field.
"We feel like we have a pretty solid infield right now," Borgen said.
Red Wing (1-4 overall, 0-4 Missota) travels to Holy Angeles for a doubleheader Monday.
