Softball sweeps series over Freedom
3/1/2018 10:31:00 PM

Softball took a 1-0 lead in the first inning and blew the game open with a four-run burst in the third in a 6-3 victory over host Freedom for their sixth consecutive victory. DP (7-1) banged out 12 hits, three each from Gracie Lopez, Kati Kelly and Tiare Kong and got seven strong innings from Raychel Trocki, who allowed just two earned runs while striking out eight. Gracie Lopez opened the game with a leadoff single and scored on a two-out single to right by Kati Kelly to give the Panthers a 1-0 lead. Three innings later, Tiare Kong and Raychel Trocki drilled RBI doubles to highlight the four-run third to push the lead to 5-0. After a leadoff double in the fourth by Gracie Lopez, Hannah Eden smacked an RBI single into left field to bring home Lopez with DP's final run. DP's offense has put up some gaudy numbers in the first third of the season, averaging .362 as a team, led by Lopez' .519 batting average and team-leading 13 runs scored. Kati Kelly is currently hitting .458 and leads the club with eight runs batted in while Hannah Eden (.423) and Megan Rush (.417) are right there as well. Raychel Trocki has amassed 63 strikeouts in just 48 innings with an earned run average of just 1.44. DP will travel to Ocoee Friday.
