Softball swept Dominican University on Tuesday in a PacWest doubleheader. Led by strong offense, the Eagles claimed an 8-0 victory in game one, and held on for a 3-1 win in game two.

DOMINANT OFFENSE

Biola started game one with a run in the first inning off of a sacrifice fly from senior third baseman Missy Poti. Senior center fielder Areana Ramos added to the lead when she ripped a double that scored two runs in the third. Poti followed up with yet another sacrifice fly to bring the score to 4-0.

The offense continued to excel as freshman left fielder Madison Blossey cranked a solo home run to extend the lead. An amazing double steal happened as Ramos stole second and senior catcher Kayla Neff stole home to make it 6-0. The game ended after six innings after another two-run double from Ramos made the score 8-0 to run-rule the Penguins.

DEFENSIVE BATTLE

Game two saw the two teams battle out a closer, low-scoring game. However, the Eagles jumped ahead early in the second inning off of an RBI single from Blossey.

Poti plated the third run of the game for Biola as she hit into a fielder’s choice that allowed Neff to score. The Penguins rallied for a run in the seventh, but the Eagles’ closed the game out to pick up the doubleheader sweep.

Biola (18-12, 13-7 PacWest) will continue play at Dominican on Wednesday in another doubleheader at 12 p.m. and 2 p.m.
