Women's Summer Collegiate Fast-Pitch Softball League

KCRG 9.2 shows all the IWSL action

The folks from KCRG 9.2 spent more than 12 hours at Busse Field Sunday  and gave its audience of full dose of action from the Iowa Women's  Softball League.

The local TV station showed all four games in the IWSL and was treated  to four exciting games, with none of the contests decided by more than  three runs.

BOSCH FINANCIAL 5
EMIL'S HIDEAWAY 2

Autumn McDanel of Belmont tossed a five-hitter with seven strikeouts  as Bosch Financial trimmed Emil's Hideaway, 5-2, in the first game of  their doubleheader.

Lexi Merritt of Grand View had a big two-run double for Bosch and  scored twice. Olivia Heckel of Stevenson was 2-for-2 with an RBI and  Peyton Bruner of Mount Mercy contributed an RBI single.

3 IWSL games end in ties

The teams are so evenly balanced in the Iowa Women's Softball League  this year that it's hard to pick a winner.

That was the case Sunday when three of the four games at Busse Field  ended in ties.

The IWSL carefully monitors each pitcher, to make sure they do not  throw too much in a summer league game and jeopardize their careers.  So when a pitcher is done for the day, she's done. And if a team does  not have a deep bullpen, a game can end in a tie.

Emil's Hideaway blanked Hawkeye Convenience Stores, 3-0, on a combined  no-hitter by Kelsey Aikey of Western Kentucky and Abby Carlin of  Western Illinois in the first game of their doubleheader. The second  game of the twinbill ended in a 4-4 deadlock.

Bosch Financial and Ironside Apparel, which have the two best records  in the IWSL, then played two straight games that ended in 3-3 ties in  both contests.

The purpose of the Iowa Women's Softball League is to give all the  players an opportunity to play during the summer and sharpen their  skills, with little concern for wins and loses. Or ties.
