Kings club Berries, 6-1

Lewis Cass' Dittmaier shuts down Logansport attack

Pitching was a question mark for Lewis Cass’ softball team entering the season.

Cheyenne Dittmaier has provided the answer this week.

The junior right-hander baffled Logansport Thursday, shutting down the Berries to lead the Kings to a 6-1 win at Fincher Field.

Dittmaier won at Kokomo this week as well.

“Cheyenne did a great job all night on the mound and kept them off balance, kept them off the bases,” Cass coach Jennifer Scott said. “She’s had a great week and we’ve still got Rochester [today] so we’ll see what happens there. She’s thrown great both games against two very good teams.”

Dittmaier allowed one run (none earned) on four hits and one walk, striking out four in a complete-game effort.

Meanwhile, the Kings (4-5) pounded out 10 hits in the win.

The Berries (4-6) jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning on an RBI single by Emily Prentice.

Dittmaier helped herself in the third with a two-run single to give the Kings a 2-1 lead. They added a run in the fourth on an RBI groundout by Ashton McClain to make it 3-1.

Alexa Humerickhouse opened the fourth with a home run off the scoreboard in right center to make it 4-1.

Hailey Holt, who just missed a home run on a shot that was a couple feet foul, added an RBI single in the seventh when an additional run scored on an error.

“The girls were focused at bat. We had great at-bats up there, working the count,” Scott said.

The Berries nearly had as many errors in the contest (3) as they had hits (4).

“We need to come mentally ready to play,” Logan coach Jim Bacon said. “When you have someone come to your field and they’re more ready to play than we are, it’s a problem. Then you make a couple errors in the field and it affects your batting ... our big thing is we’re not really ready to play.
