BORDEN — Host Borden held off Providence for a 4-3 win Monday afternoon.
The Braves plated single runs in the first, second, fourth and fifth frames while getting another strong start from Emily Schottelkotte in the circle. The freshman struck out 13 while walking four against the Pioneers, who plated one run in the fourth and two in the seventh.
"We didn’t get the support from our offense tonight we have been used to, but Schottelkotte stayed strong on the mound and we found outs behind her," Borden coach Kaitlynn Loy said. "We figured out a way to get enough runs around and came out with the win tonight."
Brooklynn Nolot paced Providence with a pair of hits and RBIs.
The Pioneers (0-4) visit Trinity Lutheran at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. The Braves (3-1), meanwhile, host Austin at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
