The Mountain View softball team got their bats going in the middle innings and beat Palo Verde 10-0 in five innings.

The Lions found their offense in the third inning, scoring five runs. They pushed the lead to 6-0 after four and then scored four in the fifth to end the game via the 10-run rule.

Dani Molinar kept the Titan hitters off balance and earned the win.

Kailey Mellen hit a home run for the Mountain Lions and Andrea Hernandez added a triple.

The win helps the Mountain Lions’ incredibly slim postseason hopes. They would have to win out and get a lot of help to climb from 37th into the top-24.
