Jacket Softball racks up two shutouts

Bailey Bakken fired a 3-hitter with 6 strikeouts for another great performance from the pitcher’s circle when visiting Cambridge-Isanti defeated Monticello 3-0 April 21.

In the top of the third inning, Kate Hammero led off with a rocket double to right-center. After Katie McCann reached on an error, Amanda Hanson singled sharply up the middle to score Hammero and move McCann to third. Taylor Bowker then laced a single to right to score those two runners.

The Jackets collected six hits on another chilly day of ball, led by Amanda Hanson’s two singles.

C-I 10, Becker 0

On April 25, Bakken chucked her third straight shutout in the five-inning home rout of the Bulldogs, striking out 8 while giving up 0 walks and just 2 hits.  Grace Smethers’ 2-run triple and Amanda Hanson’s 2-RBI single highlighted the Bluejackets’ six-run third inning.
