College softball: Rochester takes two from Lady Jays
WORTHINGTON — The Rochester Community and Technical College Yellowjackets took two softball games from host Minnesota West Tuesday, winning the first 8-2 and the second 14-2.
Christine Kazemba took the loss for West in the opener in a route-going performance. Only two of the runs she gave up were earned.
Jenny Majerus was 2-for-3 for the Lady Jays while Kazemba and Hermeling each had a hit and a run scored.
In the second game, Jurnea Harberts took the pitching loss, allowing six earned runs in going the distance.
Bailey Tish went 2-for-3 and scored one of West’s two runs. Majerus tripled in the third inning and scored a run.
Minnesota West, 5-16 on the season, made seven errors in the first game and six in the second.
“It just comes down to defense. We just gotta make the plays behind the pitchers. And we’re not always doing that right now,” said head coach Rosalie Hayenga-Hostikka.
