TURLOCK, Calif. -- After suffering a pair of narrow losses at the Tournament of Champions earlier in the day, catcher Katie Schermele's three-run double helped Montana State Billings edge Cal State Stanislaus 5-3 on Friday night in women's softball.

Schermele's game-breaking blow highlighted a five-run third inning for the Yellowjackets, who are now 10-16 on the season. Cal State Stanislaus fell to 11-30.

Three MSUB hitters managed two hits apiece, including Schermele, Taylor Hoke and Emily Osborn, who had an RBI-single during the third-inning uprising.

Starter Jessica Campbell was the winning pitcher for the Yellowjackets. She allowed just three hits in 4 1/3 innings. 

Tonya Walker hit a two-run home run with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning to power No. 8-ranked Humboldt State past MSUB 5-3 earlier on Friday.

MSUB had taken a 3-2 lead in the top of the ninth on a run-scoring single by Brittany Sanders. Humboldt State, 30-9, tied the game in the bottom of the ninth on a single by Dani Randall.

Amanda Todd, 1-6, pitched 9 2/3 innings for the Yellowjackets. She struck out 10 and scattered 14 hits.

Sanders had three hits for MSUB.

Humboldt's Walker homered twice and drove in three runs.

MSUB also lost to Chico State 8-7.

Down 8-4, the Yellowjackets made things interesting by scoring three runs in the top of the seventh -- and final -- inning. MSUB also left the bases loaded.

Aubrey Conceicao, Hoke,  Osborn and Samantha Everett had two hits apiece for the Yellowjackets.

MSUB's Jessyka MacDonald, 4-4, took the loss after pitching 4 2/3 innings in relief.

Chico State improved to 18-14 with the victory.
