SHINGLE SPRINGS — In the final two innings of its Delta River League softball game with Pleasant Grove Tuesday, host Ponderosa had three hits including a triple off the bat of Tera Jerpbak. But by then, the damage was done by the high-flying Eagles whose pitcher Celina Matthias struck out 10 Bruin batters in a 5-2 victory.

Ponderosa (0-2, 9-7-1) had a combined five hits.

“We just did not hit the ball into play today,” Ponderosa head coach Dwayne Brekke said. “We had too many strikeouts.”

Pleasant Grove led 5-0 going into the bottom of the sixth before Ponderosa cut its lead. Taylor Elders reached based on an error and scored on Jerpbak’s three-bagger deep to left field. Veronica Greene drove in Jerpbak with a single but the Bruins could come no closer.

The Eagles (2-0, 12-7) scored three runs in the top of the first inning when Vanessa Washington smacked an inside pitch to left-center field for a 3-0 lead.

“The gal got a good pitch to hit,” said Brekke of Washington’s home run. “I actually thought it was a pretty good pitch, down and in. She made an adjustment on it, made a pretty good swing.”

Rachel Timberman walked to lead off the bottom of the first and stole second base but in attempting to score on Jerpbak’s single was thrown out at home plate.

Pleasant Grove scored additional runs the third and fifth innings.

Jerpbak was 3-for-3 for the Bruins.
