Oakland bows out of 2A/1A playoffs with 12-2 loss at Kennedy
MT. ANGEL — The Oakland softball team failed to advance beyond its opening game of the OSAA Class 2A/1A playoffs on Wednesday, falling 12-2 to seventh-seeded seeded Kennedy.
Grace Schaecher earned the win for the Trojans (20-4). She shut down the Oakers’ bats, allowing only two runs on five hits with nine strikeouts.
Kennedy used a nine-run eruption in the bottom of the sixth inning to put the No. 10 Oakers away and earn a 10-run rule victory. The middle of Kennedy’s lineup did the most damage at the plate in the game as batters No. 3 through No. 5 — Emily Cuff, Schaecher, and Ellie Cantu — combined for nine RBIs on 5-for-10 hitting.
