‘Jackets sting Burrell

Sydney Selker pitched a complete game, allowing just two unearned runs on three hits as Freeport’s softball team upended Burrell, 5-2, Wednesday afternoon.

Selker struck out 14 and walked two. Abby DeJidas went 4-for-4, all singles, and teammate Addy Caruso doubled and drove in two runs for the Yellowjackets (6-5, 3-3).

Butler 5, Mt. Lebanon 0 — Madi Wolfe had a double and three RBIs as Butler snapped a seven-game losing skid.

Kelsey Ogin went the distance in the circle for the Golden Tornado (3-8, 2-8), striking out 10, and helped her own cause by driving in a run.
