The Macon Tigerettes shut out Monroe City 2-0 in a Clarence Cannon softball tilt Thursday night. The game remained scoreless through the first two and a half innings. With a runner on in the bottom of the third inning, the key hit for Macon came off the bat of junior leftfielder Brooklyn Anderson.

After averaging nearly eight runs a game last year, Monroe City’s offense has only mustered one run through two games. Despite the struggles, head coach Melissa Chinn noted there were plenty of positives to take away.
Panther pitcher Kailynn Fuemmeler went six innings, fanned four, and allowed two runs on five hits. Monroe City drops to 0-2 and hosts their annual softball tournament Saturday. Macon improves to 3-0 and plays their first road game of the year against Brookfield Tuesday.
