Atlanta, Ga. - North Alabama, FGCU, and Jacksonville pitchers all toss shutouts while Lipscomb held their opponent to one run as the ASUN puts pitching on display this Saturday.
North Alabama defeated Alcorn State, 8-0, for the 2nd time to sweep their weekend series. The Lions' Sidney Revels got her first win of 2019 after facing 11 batters and striking out 7. Revels was relieved by Michelle Moore as the pair combined to give up 3-hits.
FGCU picked up two victories against LIU Brooklyn and Ball State in day two of the FGCU Kickoff Classic. The Eagles scored early and often as Racquel Fournet doubled to center field to score Reedy Davenport. Mikenzie Vaughn and Morgan Greco also batted runners in to cap off a 5-run first inning. Riley Randolph held the Blackbirds scoreless to secure the 7-0 victory. Marissa Mesiemore pitched six strong innings against Ball State. The sophomore pitcher struck out 6 batters and gave up 2-hits as the Eagles blanked the Cardinals 4-0.
Haley Holloway and Seana Mora both threw shutouts as Jacksonville picked up two victories and avenged their season-opening loss to UMass Lowell. The Dolphins defeated the River Hawks scoring 4 runs in the first two innings and another 4 runs in the 5th and 6th inning to secure an 8-0 victory. Holloway gave up 10 hits but Providence left all ten runners stranded as the Dolphins defense kept the Friars from reaching home plate.
The Preseason Defensive Player of the Year, Hannah Devault, got offensive for the Bisons Saturday. Devault singled to center field and scored off of a Destinee Brewer double to initiate a 4-run 2nd inning. Devault would return to bat in the 4th inning and belt a solo home run to left field as the Bisons top McNeese State, 6-1.
