MARIETTA –For Heidelberg, 8 was a lucky number

Kaitlin Keys and Kaitlin Moore homered in Game 1 and Game 2, respectively, and Heidelberg vaulted past Ohio Athletic Conference foe Marietta, 8-2 and 8-6.

In Game 1, Heidelberg scored in each of the first four innings. As it turned out, that was more than enough for Moore. She allowed a two-run homer to the Pioneers’ Jordan Palley, but she struck out 10 while allowing seven hits in a complete seven innings.

Shelby Miller added insurance for the Student Princes in the sixth. With her team leading 5-2, she hit a two-run single, part of a three-run inning that put the game away.

Game 2 was a bigger challenge.

A Casey Moore RBI single in the first inning gave HU an early lead, but Marietta countered in the bottom of the first, getting a three-run double by Ashley Tschudy.

Heidelberg came right back, scoring twice in the second and the third to go up 5-3. Joanna Catalano had an RBI single in the second, and Miller added a run-scoring base hit of her own. In the third, Moore hit a solo homer, while Haylee Patel hit a double and then scored on a fielding error.

Miller added another RBI single in the sixth, and Casey Moore followed with an RBI double, part of a third inning that put HU up 8-6.

The Student Princes then withstood a three-run rally in the bottom of the inning by Marietta to secure the win.

Morgan Daniels picked up the win for the Student Princes, throwing four innings and striking out four, while Vanessa Macias threw three innings of relief. Together, the pair combined to strand 10 Marietta runners.

HU improved to 13-7, 3-1 in the OAC. Marietta slipped to 9-11, 1-3.
