Astoria had just four hits in a Monday afternoon softball game against Tillamook, but that was enough for pitcher Julia Norris, who only gave up three hits in a 3-1 Cowapa League win over the Lady Mooks at CMH Field.

Norris also struck out 10 batters with two walks, while Astoria snapped a 1-1 tie with two runs in the bottom of the third for the eventual winning runs.

The Fishermen scored one in the first, when Hailey O'Brien had a leadoff double and scored on a pair of wild pitches.

O'Brien had a one-out triple in the third inning, and scored on an RBI from Lexi Lyngstad. Norris later drove in Halle Helmersen.

Astoria hosts Seaside in a league finale Tuesday.
