TIFFIN, Ohio -- The SVSU Softball team posted a GLIAC doubleheader sweep at Tiffin University on Friday (Apr. 27) afternoon in Ohio. The Cardinals were led by Aubree Mouthaan, who registered four home runs on the day with eight RBI in securing victories of 8-2 and 8-0 (5 inn.).
The victories improve the Cardinals' overall record to 23-21 on the season with a 14-12 record in the GLIAC. Tiffin falls to 22-25 overall and 10-14 in league play.
Mouthaan's second long ball and second straight of the game came in the 5th, pushing the visitor lead to 4-2 after the Dragons scored runs in the 3rd and 4th.
The final four runs came in the top of the 7th, as Hamilton and Corbett had RBI for the Cards. Mouthaan delivered once again in that inning, going deep for the third straight time and getting two more RBI to put the lead at 8-2. That would prove to be the game's final.
Mouthaan was 3-3 with four RBI and also reached base being hit by a pitch. Hamilton was 2-3 with a pair of RBI. Bachert and Burgess were each 2-4 as well for the Cardinals. Reeves and Corbett each had a hit and RBI.
Kasey Bagelmann got the win pitching in relief, working 3.2 innings. She allowed just a single hit with zero runs. She worked in relief of 3.1 innings in the start with two runs on six hits. She struck-out three batters and walked one.
Mouthaan kept it rolling for SVSU in the second game, using a bases-loaded opportunity to bring everybody home on a grand slam with her fourth straight home run. An RBI single from Blasia Moyler shortly after made the count 5-0 in the top of the 1st.
Mouthaan had four RBI with a pair of runs and a walk in the game. Hamilton and Meredith Rousse each added a pair of hits, as did Moyler and Burgess with an RBI-apiece. Misiak had a hit and two RBI.
Anna Conard picked up the win, tossing 4.0 innings with no hits allowed and a strikeout. It marks her 11th victory of the season.
The Cardinals continue on the road to play at Ashland University on Saturday (Apr. 28) afternoon. First pitch is set for 1:00 p.m. in Ohio.
