Red Wing scored a season-high eight runs Tuesday, but it came in a 16-8 loss to Chaska in Chaska.
The Wingers led 3-0 after the top of the third inning when the Hawks stormed back for a nine-run third inning.
Red Wing (0-11, 0-10 Missota) came right back in the fourth for four runs to cut the lead to 9-7 before Chaska tacked on five runs in the bottom half of the inning.
Wingers head coach Cheryl Borgen said the game was a step in the right direction, but the team needs to find a way to get all three phases of the game clicking on the same day.
“We’re finally showing some real discipline at the plate,” Borgen said. “I think the biggest thing is we can’t get all three working at the same time. We need to find a way we’re going to get all three of those working at the same time.”
Makaela Egan went 2-for-3 with a run and three RBI for Red Wing while Tesha Buck finished 3-for-4 with an RBI and Elle Anderson went 2-for-3.
The Wingers still struck out 11 times in the game and made four errors.
Red Wing faces Owatonna Wednesday in Owatonna.
