Down 8-2 after four innings, Sisters rallied back on the road Tuesday to defeat Mountain View 9-8 in nonleague softball action.

“It was a little hazy there at first,” first-year Outlaw coach Ben Miller said. “But we pulled it out in the end.”

Taylor Nieri ended the game two for four with three runs batted in for Sisters, two of which helped spark a four-run sixth inning that put the Outlaws ahead for good, 9-8. Cassidy Edwards earned the victory for Sisters, scattering five hits over seven innings. The Outlaws’ senior pitcher allowed eight runs in the first three innings before shutting the Cougars out the rest of the way.

“We had a couple errors in the second inning and three in the third,” said Miller, whose team improved to 2-1. “We just really got down. But then the bats woke up and that seemed to carry over to our defense. That kicked everything into gear.”

Harley Rowe added a two-for-four performance at the plate in which she doubled and knocked in three runs. Edwards contributed on offense as well, going three for five with an RBI.

Hannah Wickland took the loss for the Cougars, who fell to 0-4 on the year.
