MANHATTAN — With divisionals right around the corner, the bats were hot for Manhattan softball Tuesday afternoon as they hosted their last home game of the regular season shutting out the Anaconda Copperheads 13-0.

It wasn't until the bottom of the second inning that the bats came alive for the Tigers. Shayla Shea scored the first two runs with a fly ball to centerfield, which Anaconda dropped for an error.

With two outs on the board, Manhattan rallied eight straight runs to close out the second inning.

Shea hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the third to extend the Tigers' lead 11-0, finishing 2-4 on the day.

The Tigers will close out their regular season with a doubleheader Saturday against Shepherd and Huntley Project before divisionals start the following week in Florence.
