HEPPNER — Knappa coach James Nichols said, “we’re the best three-inning team in the state.”
Unfortunately for his Lady Logger softball team, games go seven innings nowadays.
Knappa has held leads in all of its last four games, but the Loggers have now lost five in a row, following losses to Heppner (13-3) and Enterprise (15-5) Thursday.
Both games took place in Heppner.
“We’re just making too many mistakes in the field,” Nichols said.
Knappa was ahead after three innings in the loss to Heppner, in which Knappa freshman Hannah Hellburg was 2-for-2 at the plate.
The Loggers fall to 1-6 overall, but will still be a force in the Northwest League. Knappa opens the league season Tuesday at Neah-Kah-Nie.
