Pitcher Anisa Wingsness tossed a two-hit shutout as Western Washington University blanked Montana State University Billings 7-0 in the nightcap of a Great Northwest Athletic Conference softball doubleheader that started Wednesday and ended Thursday, March 7, at Viking Field.
Wingsness (2-3) allowed just a leadoff bunt single to Emily Osborn in the top of the fifth and a two-out double to Brittney Sanders in the seventh. Wingsness struck out one and did not issue a walk.
Camille Depew gave WWU a 1-0 lead in the second when she tripled and scored on a single by Kristen Allen. Alexie Levin hit a two-run homer in the third after Allen singled, and Kaleigh Keating tripled in the fourth and scored on a wild pitch for a 4-0 advantage.
The Vikings also scored three runs in the sixth inning. Depew singled, stole second and third, and scored on an error; and Rachelle Berry and Lauren Bennett each had run-scoring singles.
MSUB took the first game 5-3 after it resumed after four innings Wednesday with the score tied at 3-3. Osborn hit a two-out, two-run homer over the right-field fence in the top of the fifth and pitcher Amanda Todd (2-0) retired nine of the 10 batters she faced for the complete-game victory.
