Onekama bats come alive in nightcap

MESICK — The Onekama softball team bounced back from a 17-2 opening loss to Mesick Thursday and salvaged a split with a 13-10 win in the nightcap.

The opener lasted just three innings as the Bulldogs knocked 15 hits en route to the mercy-rule victory. Elizabeth Bergren had the only hit for the Portagers (7-7).

In the nightcap, though, Onekama’s bats came alive.

“It was a nice win for us,” said Portagers coach Rob Johnson. “We had some fantastic base running in the second game. We got under their skin, they started to commit some errors and we took advantage.”

Emily Bergren notched the win in the circle for Onekama, allowing nine hits and one walk with a strikeout in six innings.

At the plate, Portager senior Nicki Slater led the way with two hits and two RBIs while Jennica Mathieu had two hits and an RBI and Elizabeth Bergren knocked a pair of hits.
