The Tigers softball team got home runs from Becca Brueggemeier and Brooke McGlinchey, and Cece Giesen fanned 12 while tossing a one-hitter in a 3-1 victory over Tri-City United in the season opener for both squads last Thursday, April 15, in Belle Plaine.

The Tigers (1-0 MRC, 1-0 overall) were to welcome Sibley East (0-1) on Tuesday, April 20, weather permitting. (The result was not available at press time).

The Tigers venture to Cannon Falls on Saturday, April 24, for a double-header starting at 11 a.m.

Giesen found herself in a pitcher’s dual with TCU’s Ellaine Novak in the early going. The game was 0-0 into the bottom of the fourth when Becca Brueggemeier’s home run plated the first run of the season. Brueggemeier had three hits on the day.

Brooke McGlinchey added a two-run homer in the sixth to give the Tigers a 3-0 lead, which was all Giesen needed. The Titans did strike for a single tally in the seventh.

“We played a pretty good game for the first time out,” said  Coach Brent Jaeger. “Got a great performance in the circle from (Cece) and didn’t commit any errors in the field. We will need more timely hitting in the future as we left six runners on base.”

Cameron Chard had two hits for the Tigers.
