Meigs 14, Marietta 2
The Lady Marauders (3-1) picked up their second win of the week, defeating non-conference host Marietta 14-2. The Maroon and Gold were up 2-0 after RBIs by Delana Wright and Mallory Adams in the top of the first, but a two-run double by Schilling in the home half tied it up. The Lady Tigers had just one more hit in the game, however, and didn’t reach second base again. Jerrica Smith doubled home Mara Hall for the go-ahead run in the top of the second, and two more Lady Marauders wound up scoring in the frame. The guests pushed across eight runs in the third inning, highlighted by a two-run Lily Dugan home run. The Lady Marauders added a run in the top of the fourth for the cherry on top of the 14-2 win. Jess Workman was the winning pitcher of record in 4.2 innings of relief, allowing one hit and striking out three batters. Leading Meigs at the plate, Smith went 4-for-4 with four runs batted in, and three runs scored, and Adams went 3-for-3 with three RBIs and one run scored. Dugan added a double to go with her home run, finishing 2-for-3.
