SPRING LAKE HIGH SCHOOL: 0
The Dux were on their way to claim a sweep on the Spring Lake Lakers when the weather didn't hold up for them. The sky opened up in the bottom of the fourth with the Dux up 15-0 with one out.
The Dux offense jumped up right away scoring seven runs in the top of the first inning with two outs. The rally started with Izzy Zamora hitting a double, followed by Taylor Zwagerman hitting a double, followed by Alex Brott hitting a double! Then a string of singles by Makena Moungkhoun and Morgan Patrick. Then Carly Sleeman hit a triple scoring two more to go up 7-0. "It was great to see this team continue to fight with two outs." said Coach Sliva "They don't give up and find another gear when we are two down to spark the offense"
Alexa Brott was on the mound battling the elements. She threw 3 1/3 innings before the game was suspended. She allowed zero runs on two hits, striking out 5 and walking one. "It was tough for both pitchers in the second game. The rain was constant and making it difficult to grip the ball. She kept her composure and threw well. It was unfortunate we couldn't complete it for her and the offense"
Dux offense collected 18 hits before the game was suspended. Taylor Zwagerman led the way going 4 for 4 with two doubles. Morgan Patrick was 3 for 3 driving in 3 RBIs with a double. Carly Sleeman was 3 for 4 and drove in 3 RBIs with two triples and a double. Izzy Zamora, Brott, and Makena Moungkhoun had two hits each. Emily Kragt and Maddie Wyckoff added hits for the victory.
This game didn't count as a win as it was suspended, so the Dux record remains at 21-10. They take on Rockford Rams tomorrow at 4:15 for a double header at home. They will be celebrating their seniors Emily Brands, Taylor Zwagerman, Avery Vugteveen, and Lauren Spahr!
