The Reed softball team salvaged a split Friday by riding Shivaun Landeros' one-hitter to a 2-0 victory over Rodriguez at the Hiram Johnson preseason tournament.

Landeros struck out 10, while walking no one in the shutout. She hit one batter.

The Raiders got all the offense they would need with a two-run second inning.

Amanda Leighton reached base on an error and moved up to second base on a wild pitch. Andi Leighton singled her home and she would later score on Mary Dettling's RBI single.

In the early game Friday, Reed pitchers walked six batters and lost 3-2 to Del Campo.

Del Campo was the visitors on the scoreboard and forced Reed to play catch-up the entire game.

Two RBI singles in the top of the second handed Del Campo a 2-0 lead.

Landeros cut the deficit in half when she singled and eventually scored thanks to a fielder's choice.

Del Campo pushed across what proved to be the eventual winning run on a passed ball in the sixth inning.

The Raiders answered right back in the bottom half of the sixth. Dettling made it safely to first on an error. She advanced two bases on two outs, and Makaela Moore singled her home,, but it wasn't enough.

Reed (1-2) takes on Napa today at 9 a.m.

•In the same tourney, Spanish Springs also split Friday's action. The Cougars beat Oakmont 7-2, but fell to nationally-ranked Pleasant Grove, 9-3 in the nightcap.

Senior ace pitcher Danica Arterburn went five innings against Oakmont, allowing one run on two hits, while striking out eight to pick up the win.

She benefited from several teammates performing well at the plate. Bella Rovens led the way, going 3-for-4 with two runs scored. Dani Smith knocked in three runs by going 2-for-2. She also scored two runs. Kayla Arterburn contributed two hits and two runs in the win.

However, Pleasant Grove proved to be too tough as it scored six runs in the third and was never threatened.

The Cougars ended the shutout bid by pushing across three runs in the bottom of the fifth.

Sydney Darby drove in two runs on two hits and Kaytlin Ripa was 2-for-3 with an RBI.

Spanish Springs (2-1) is back on the field today at 3:15 p.m. against Cordova and will play again at 5 p.m. but the opponent is unknown.
