It’s tough to win softball games. It’s even more difficult when a team is struggling in the field with errors. Winona was the beneficiary of the latter as Red Wing racked up seven errors in a 15-3 loss to the Winhawks on Tuesday.

Winona was on the march early as it scored 11 runs by the third inning to take an 11-1 run into the fourth inning. Red Wing’s lone run up to that point came in the first inning when Amira Ramstad hit a double, scoring Kennedy Knopp.

The duo of Ramstad and Knopp struck again in the fourth inning when Knopp scored for the second time off a fielder’s choice hit by Ramstad. That put the game at 11-2, but Winona scored one run in the top of the fifth inning to put the Wingers at risk of being 10-runned after five innings.

Abby Boxrud scored on an error by Winona to keep Red Wing alive in the game a little longer, but it was a moot point as the Winhawks scored three runs in the sixth to put the game away.

Pitching stats: Ramstad (5 ⅔ IP, 5 K, 8 BB, 10 H, 6 ER); Bri Tix (⅓ IP, 1 BB)

Batting stats: Boxrud (1 H, 1 R); Knopp (2 R, 1 H); Ramstad (2 RBI, 1 H, 1 2B); Ellie Clemens (1 BB)

Red Wing, 4-6, is next scheduled to host Faribault on Thursday in a doubleheader.
