The Todd Beamer softball team remained firmly entrenched in third place in the South Puget Sound League South Division with a 6-3 win over cross-district rival Decatur Tuesday.
The Titans (9-4 overall, 7-3 SPSL South) tallied two huge insurance runs in the top of the seventh inning to turn a 4-3 lead into a 6-3 win.
Beamer seniors Sarah Petosa and Taylor Winton again led the Titans' offense. The speedy Petosa, who is headed to Seattle University in the fall, finished 3 for 4 and Winton, a Marshall commit, knocked in two big runs with a double in the top of the fifth.
Sophomore Emma Blauser picked up the win on the mound for Beamer. Blauser allowed two earned runs in seven innings of work. Shelley Van Wagner took the loss for Decatur (3-11 overall, 2-8 SPSL South).
