ST. PETER — Errors hurt the Worthington Trojans fast-pitch softball team on Monday as host St. Peter swept both ends of a doubleheader, 7-2 and 12-10.
The Trojans allowed five first inning runs in the first game and committed three miscues in the field.
Haley Grimmius hit two solo home runs in game one and another in game two. In a tournament Saturday in Jackson, Grimmius belted three homers.
Grimmius pitched six innings and allowed four earned runs in the opener, with five walks and seven strikeouts. She allowed seven hits.
Worthington enjoyed a 10-6 lead going into the sixth inning of the second game but surrendered five runs in that inning — aided by three errors. Grimmius struck out eight batters in that game and walked no one.
Olivia Hayenga was 2-for-3 at the plate with two runs scored and an RBI. Hannah McNab was 2-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI. Baily Ponto also had two hits, with two RBIs.
The Trojans committed 10 errors for the two games.
