Softball Northstars rebound from first defeat

C-NS blanks Auburn, 9-0, as O'Hara strikes out 13

— In the bottom of the fourth, with the margin grown to 7-0, O'Hara, in her third plate appearance, drilled an opposite-field home run over the left-field fence, her sixth round-tripper of the season.

C-NS did not have Kelly Corbin in the lineup, but for a perfectly good reason. Corbin, along with her parents, flew down to Miami to watch Kelly's older brother, Patrick, make his Major League Baseball debut for the Arizona Diamondbacks against the Miami Marlins.

And it proved to be a winning debut. Arizona beat Miami 9-5, as Corbin pitched 5 2/3 innings, giving up three runs, eight hits and three walks but striking out six. Corbin's next start is Saturday, against the New York Mets at Citi Field in Queens.
