In the first of three nonleague games this week, the Astoria softball team tuned up for the state playoffs with an 8-3 win Tuesday at Yamhill-Carlton.
Astoria pitcher Julia Norris shut down the Tigers, scattering five hits with seven strikeouts and two walks.
The Fishermen only had five hits of their own, including a solo home run by Kayla Helligso and a two-run double for Halle Helmersen. Mollie Matthews also drove in two runs.
Astoria plays the second of two games Friday with Clatskanie.
