Trautmann opened the scoring by leading off the second inning with a tremendous blast to left field that cleared both Converse Chuck 2 White Laces fences, a sidewalk and a row of cars, landing in the parking lot some 300 feet from home plate. It was difficult to come to a consensus, at the end of the day, which of Trautmann's two homers went the farthest, but she admitted they were among the longest of her career.
Pickett went the distance, allowing eight hits and no walks. Viking coach Gretta Melsted had Trautmann warming up, but said this was Pickett's game to finish.
Trautmann was pulled from the circle after four innings despite not having allowed a hit, and while reliever Karlee Koopman was unable to finish off the no hit bid, she worked out of a jam in the fifth to complete the shutout.
"It's not just that we're hitting home runs," Melsted said. "It's how hard they're hit and how far they're going. That's intimidating to some of the pitchers we're facing."
Maddie Merriam added a three run homer later in the inning to make it 4 0, and Caitlin Nichol followed Merriam with a homer to make it 5 0.
That gave the Vikings a 2 0 lead in the fourth, and a sac fly by Lindsay Spanton pushed it to 3 0 in the sixth. The Mavs (43 10) finally got on the board against Viking starter Carley Pickett with an RBI single by Tatum Klein in the bottom of the sixth, but that rally was killed when Klein was struck by a batted ball while running the bases.
"We were going with Carley all the way," Melsted said. "She threw extremely well. She was getting ground balls and getting ahead of hitters, Converse White High Tops Size 5

The Vikings (43 11) weren't challenged much by Mary in their first game of the day, hitting five homers to roll past the Marauders in just five innings.
"We're super excited," Trautmann said. "We're going into that game feeling like we're the team to beat. We're the ones that should be holding up that conference championship trophy.".
"I just tried to keep the ball down, and my defense stepped up and played awesome behind me," said the sophomore southpaw. "They've been putting in a lot of work and it really paid off today."
The Vikings have hit 13 homers in the tournament's first three games but got just one big one against the Mavs. Trautmann's blast to left center off Mankato ace Coley Ries (23 5) had its long flight shortened by a tree.
