Dayton loses in
7th to Yerington
YERINGTON – Yerington pushed across a run in the bottom of the seventh on back-to-back errors to snap a 2-all tie and beat Dayton 3-2 in a Northern 3A softball game Tuesday afternoon.
Makayla Shadle fanned 14 and allowed just three hits, but it wasn’t enough to beat Katie Nicholas, who scattered seven hits to pick up the win.
“It was a tough loss,” said Dayton coiach Daven Passalacqua. “Shadle threw very well. Nicholas is a good little pitcher. Her ball has a weird rotation. Sh’s been tough against us.”
Yerington broke the scoreless tie in the sixth on a double, single, a dropped third strike and a passed ball. Dayton answered back with two of its own thanks to four hits, including run-scoring hits by Kalee Alexander and Claire Cerda.
That set the stage for the Yerington rally.
Dayton plays crossover games Friday and Saturday in Fernley.
