BOSSIER CITY, La. - The Bossier Parish Community College Lady Cavaliers completed a doubleheader sweep of Baton Rouge Community College with a 3-1 win in game two Wednesday at the BPCC Softball Field.
With the game tied at one in the fourth, BPCC second baseman Abi Cole blasted a solo home run over the left field fence to lead off the bottom of the inning. The homer for Cole was her second of the day and sixth of the season. BPCC would add an insurance run later in the frame on Dorrie Cormier's sacrifice fly which scored Haily Ebey, who doubled two batters after Cole's home run.
The two-run cushion was more than enough for BPCC pitcher Kaitlyn Roth, who went the distance to earn her 14th win of the season. A sophomore from Wichita, Kan., Roth allowed the Lady Bears just one run on four hits, while walking three and striking out five. Despite pitching well, Bailey Duhon absorbed the loss for BRCC. Duhon surrendered three runs on just four hits while walking one and striking out seven.
Bossier Parish got on the board first courtesy of Ally Klein's two-out, solo home run in the bottom of the second inning. It was Klein's second home run of the day and her eighth of the season. Baton Rouge would tie the game in the top of the third on Blayne Pence's sacrifice fly which scored Cori Breaux, who led off the inning with a single.
With the doubleheader sweep, BPCC has now won four straight game and has improved its record to 29-11 on the season. The two losses drop BRCC to 4-28 on the year. The Lady Cavaliers return to Region XIV play on Friday, Apr. 12 when they travel to Tyler, Texas to battle the No. 4-ranked Tyler Junior College Apaches.
