SISTERS — Sisters’ scorching start to the softball season continued on Monday as the Outlaws rolled past Cottage Grove 15-0 in five innings.

Cassidy Edwards struck out 15 and allowed just one hit while the Sisters offense scored 10 runs in the first two innings to help the Outlaws improve to 7-1 overall with a victory in their Sky-Em League opener. Boston Moore went two for three with two doubles and six runs batted in to lead a Sisters offense that banged out 13 hits against the overmatched Lions. Ashley Smith added a two-for-three performance with three RBIs and Maddie Edwards contributed two hits and two RBIs for the Outlaws, who have now won seven games in a row.

“All but one of our starters play summer ball,” Sisters coach Ben Miller said. “You just don’t realize how big of a difference that makes.”

The Outlaws jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning and never looked back. RBIs by Smith and Moore sparked Sisters’ first at-bat, and with Edwards in the circle, the Outlaws were never threatened.

“We’ve got a lot going with our pitching,” Miller said in reference to Edwards, who walked just one batter while earning the win. “That’s a huge asset.”
