What's the best way to answer three first inning runs? By scoring six in the bottom half of the first. That's how Calvert responded after McComb got an early jump. The rest of the afternoon was all Senecas in a 14-4, five-inning win.
Five of Calvert's 12 hits went for extra bases including Gabby Bennett's home run. She picked up two RBIs on the day. A home run was the only thing keeping Kate Bricker from hitting for the cycle. She had a single, double and triple. Margaret Bowers also tripled and Nicole Fretz doubled.
Meridith Lucius was 3 for 3 with four RBIs on the day. Fretz drove in two with Nicole Bickley, Allison Huss, Allie Beckley and Bowers all adding RBIs.
Bennett was the winning pitcher. She gave up two earned runs and struck out six.
