Truckee softball: Wolverines drop playoff game at Spring Creek

Special to the Sun

The Truckee varsity softball team dropped game one of their best-of-three game series at Spring Creek on Friday, 4-0.

Entering the Northern 3A regional tournament as the sixth seed, the Wolverine bats just couldn’t catch up to Spartan pitcher Jordan Garcia, as they were limited to just three hits while striking out 14 times.

Truckee pitcher Rachel Zissimos threw a great game herself, going six innings, allowing four runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out seven.

But Spring Creek hitters did just enough to win, scoring two runs in the thrid, and two more in the fifth to take the win.

Truckee third-baseman Krysta Murphy led the Wolverines at the plate, going 2 for 2. Zissimos added the Wolverines’ third hit.

Truckee plays the Spartans again on Saturday a win-or-go-home situation. The Wolverines must win both games on Saturday in order to advance to the state championship tournament next weekend.
