Sophomore second baseman Deija Benn (2017)
The hits started early and they just kept coming last night as DP Softball blasted visiting Oak Ridge 15-0 in the opener and 19-1 in the nightcap to up their record to 6-1. The Panthers, winners of five straight, jumped on the Pioneers for four runs in the first inning of game one and wrapped it up quickly with a nine-run third. Raychel Trocki got the victory, allowing no hits while striking out seven in just three innings. DP had five players with multiple hits including Nini Underwood (3-3, RBI, three runs, six stolen bases), Hannah Eden (2-2, two doubles, RBI, two runs, two stolen bases), Alexa Wexler (2-2, triple, two RBIs, two runs), Deija Benn (2-3, home run, double, two RBIs, two runs), and Gracie Lopez (3-3, two triples, RBI, two runs, three stolen bases). The bats stayed explosive in game two as well as DP banged out 19 hits. Nini Underwood went 4-4 with three RBIs, two runs and four stolen bases to cap arguably a perfect day at the plate. Plenty more including Megan Rush (2-3, double, two RBIs, three runs, four stolen bases), Raychel Trocki (2-2, two runs, three stolen bases), Gracie Lopez (2-2, triple, two RBIs, three runs, two stolen bases), Kati Kelly (1-1, double, two walks, RBI, two runs), Deija Benn (1-1, triple, two RBIs, two runs), Alexa Wexler (2-2, RBI, run) and Tiare Kong (1-2, triple, three RBIs, two runs). DP will welcome in Wekiva Monday night.
