Pack sweeps doubleheader to win their 5th straight
The CSU-Pueblo softball team continued their stellar play and pitching remained strong as they swept the Saturday's double header over UC-Colorado Springs.
The Pack claimed game one 7-3 while routing the Mountain Lions in game two 14-1 in 5 innings.
Game one was all T-Wolves, who got seven runs on nine hits behind solid pitching from CSU-Pueblo starter Amber Higby (Sr., Pueblo, Colo.), who picked up her sixth win on the year. The T-Wolves' insurance runs were provided in the fourth on a one-out two-run homer from Ashley Aldrich (Sr., Sahuarita, Ariz.), her third of the year.
Game two picked up exactly where the first left off. The Pack jumped on UCCS starter Holly Jordan and erupted for 10 runs on nine hits in the first inning alone to pace the remainder of the quick 5-inning game.
CSU-Pueblo starter Kelsey Swanberg (Sr., Arvada, Colo.), who was nothing but dominant, shut down the Mountain Lions to pick up her fourth win on the season. All but one of the T-Wolf starters recorded at least one hit to stay in command of the game and continue on their current five-game winning streak.
The Pack will look to continue the hot streak and go for the weekend sweep in another doubleheader on Sunday, the first pitch is scheduled for 11 a.m. for game one, and 1 pm start time for game two.
