The Tigers hiked their firstplace Central Lakeshore Conference softball record to 11-2 (11-8 overall). The Resorters, who are battling for first, slipped to 6-4 in the CLC (8-4 overall).

The second game of the scheduled doubleheader at Elkhart was postponed due to the weather.

Howards scored all of its runs in the fifth with two outs as it overcame a 3-1 deficit to go ahead 9-4. Lindsay Krell’s two-run double was the big blow. The Tigers combined four walks, three hits, one hit batter and one Elkhart error in the frame.

A six-run sixth pushed the Tigers’ advantage to 15-4. Amber Reinemann, Robyn Bitter, Valerie Free and Kara Bell had RBI singles in the inning.
