Chase Shortly went 6-for-7 with seven RBI to lead No. 7-ranked St. Thomas Softball to a pair of five-inning wins Saturday evening at the Rochester (Minn.) Dome.
The Toms pounded 21 hits as they topped Buena Vista (Iowa), 16-4, then beat 2018 NCAA playoff qualifier UW-Oshkosh, 9-1.
Four Tommie pitchers allowed two earned runs over 10 innings. Junior Kierstin Anderson-Glass allowed one run in four innings to top Oshkosh.
The Toms are scheduled to play Grinnell on Sunday afternoon back in Rochester. A second foe, Wartburg, has elected not to travel Sunday due to the poor weather in Northern Iowa and southeast Minnesota.
