TEAM NPF beats Nebraska 7-0 in second game of double header!


Osterman Leads All-Stars Past Huskers


Lincoln - Olympic Gold Medalist Cat Osterman tossed a no-hitter and struck out 20 to lead the National Pro Fastpitch all-stars to a 7-0 victory over the Nebraska softball team in the second game of a Saturday doubleheader at Bowlin Stadium.

The exhibition game featured a unique format, as each batter began her at bat with a 1-1 count. Osterman used that to her advantage, striking out 20 without issuing a single walk. Only two Huskers put the ball in play against her and the only runner to reach base was freshman Taylor Edwards, who reached first safely on a wild pitch following a strikeout.

Junior right-hander Ashley Hagemann took the loss, allowing two runs on three hits in 3.0 innings. Freshman right-hander Tatum Edwards relieved Hagemann and allowed one run on only one hit in 1.0 inning, as she walked three. Junior right-hander Haley Workman finished the game, allowing three runs (one earned) on six hits in 3.0 innings.

After trailing for the first three innings of game one, the NPF all-stars jumped out to a quick lead in game two. Vicky Galindo began the game with a single before Caitlin Lever snuck a two-run homer just inside the left field foul pole one batter later.

The all-stars loaded the bases with one out in the fourth on a pair of walks and an infield single against Tatum Edwards, who relieved Hagemann to begin the inning. Galindo then gave the NPF all-stars a 3-0 lead with a sacrifice fly. Another walk re-loaded the bases before Samantha Findlay grounded out to end the inning.

Nebraska was its own worst enemy in the fifth, allowing a pair of runs to score on a wild pitch and an error.

In the bottom of the fifth, junior Nikki Haget grounded out short to end a string of 14 consecutive batters struck out by Osterman.

The all-stars' lead grew to 7-0 after scoring twice in the top of the seventh, including an RBI single from former Husker Nicole Trimboli.

Senior Heidi Foland began the bottom of the seventh with a fly out to left before Osterman wrapped up her no-hitter by striking out the final two batters.

Saturday's doubleheader marked the end of Nebraska's fall season.
