ALPINE, Texas- A 15-hit payload by the Lady Lobos paired with Jodie Vaughn’s three-hit shut out led to a 14-0 victory over visiting LeTourneau University in Saturday’s rubber match.
Sul Ross picked up its second consecutive series win following Saturday’s victory.
The home team drove five runs across in the bottom of the first inning as Camryn Hardin scored on a bases-loaded walk by Mary Villareal.
A three-run triple by Gabriela Raimondi then scored Villareal, Abbie Alvarado and Payslee Sims before an RBI ground out by Hailey Guillen plated Raimondi for a 5-0 Sul Ross lead.
The Lady Lobos exploded with nine insurance runs in the second as Annika Canaba scored on a single by Villareal.
A single up the middle by Raimondi then sent Alvarado and Tatum Lynch across for an 8-0 Sul Ross advantage.
Villareal then scored on a single by Guillen before a three-run double by Ashley Weatherford scored Guillen, Anaya Losoya and Raimondi.
Hardin doubled Weatherford across then scored on a wild pitch for a 14-0 lead and the eventual final after five innings.
For the second consecutive outing, Raimondi batted 1.000 at 3-for-3 hitting after going 4-for-4 in last night’s 7-6 walk off win.
Losoya finished at 2-for-2 while Sims posted a 2-for-3 showing.
Vaughn pitched a complete game in the shutout and struck out six opposing batters while allowing just one walk.
Saturday’s victory improves the Lady Lobos to 7-6 on the season and 5-6 in ASC competition. The Yellowjackets slump to 10-6 and 8-4.
Sully will visit Schreiner University for a Tuesday non-conference doubleheader before returning to ASC play March 15 and 16 in a three-game series at Hardin-Simmons.
