The St. Charles East softball team has been thriving this season with the home run ball but on Tuesday at Bartlett the Saints won by stringing together singles then getting a clutch double from sophomore catcher Riley Stout.

Trailing the host Hawks 4-2 going into the top of the seventh inning of the Upstate Eight crossover, St. Charles East loaded the bases with singles from Madelyn Candre and Katie Kolb and a walk to Alex Latoria.

Sophomore Jordan Hieber then delivered a 2-run single on an 0-2 pitch to tie the game, just before Stout cranked a 1-2 pitch to the base of the fence in left-center field to drive home Latoria and Hieber and give the Saints a 6-4 lead, which they held onto in the bottom of the seventh when junior right-hander Jordan Hall retired the meat of Bartlett’s order to preserve the win and run her record for the season to 6-0.
