WALTHAM, Mass. – The Johnson & Wales University softball team found its offensive rhythm during Thursday's GNAC doubleheader at Regis. The Wildcats topped the Pride, 11-2, in the opener then again, 11-1, in game two.
Regis: 4-26, 1-11 GNAC
Johnson & Wales: 15-15, 7-3 GNAC
JWU didn't waste any time getting on the board as Ally Mishol cranked a solo home run in the first inning of game one. It's her fifth of the season – which ranks second in the league - and puts her just one dinger short of cracking the JWU single-season list.
The big inning was the second as Johnson & Wales sent 11 batters to the plate and scored six runs. Kristin Frost helped her own cause with a two-run double.
Frost was nearly perfect in the circle as she gave up just one hit in three innings to collect her sixth victory.
Game two started off with another round tripper. Summer Ramundo hit a two-run shot to start a five-run opening inning. The Wildcats scored three runs without a base hit thanks to two walks and a hit batter with the bases loaded.
Picking up the game two win was Ramundo as she worked three innings, giving up one run on three hits with four strikeouts.
The Wildcats continue conference play Friday when they host Anna Maria for an 11 a.m. doubleheader.
