Pella Christian pitcher Paige Blom consistently found the strike zone and reached a significant career milestone in the process as the Pella Christian softball team turned six hits into a 7-3 win over Grinnell on Friday night.  

Blom pitched all seven innings for the Lady Eagles, allowing only six hits and three walks while striking out seven Tiger batters.  In the process, Blom reached the 1,000 career strikeout plateau.  

Offensively, the doubles came in bunches for Pella Christian, with Sami Veenstra going 2-for-2 with a pair of two-baggers, while Blom and Tayler Stursma each went 1-for-3 with one double each.  

Pella Christian is now 3-2 overall and 2-1 in conference play entering a three-game tournament today in Oskaloosa.
