BOURBON â€” With a freshman inside the circle, Tritonâ€™s veteran squad needed to make plays behind her.
Instead, the Lady Trojans gave up nine errors in the drizzling wet conditions at their home field, and Rochester batters capitalized off 14 hits and nine bases on balls to rout their hosts 21-3 in five innings in the Zebrasâ€™ season opener Monday.
â€śWeâ€™ve got a freshman kid pitching and I understand that, so we have to play some defense behind her, and I thought our defense was not very good tonight,â€ť said Triton head softball coach Steve McBride.

I thought we were in good shape earlyâ€¦ and made mistakes at the end.â€ť
