In Game 1, junior Meghan Garland (Mineral Ridge) gave up one run and struck out three batters in 7.0 innings of work for her third win of the season.

Hiram jumped on the board in the first inning on a RBI singe from senior Miranda Wright(Richfield/Revere) and added another run in the third on a RBI double by sophomore Dana Perrotta (New Castle, Pa.).

Perrotta added another RBI in the sixth, doubling in junior Jessica Wahl (Akron/Ellet) to give Hiram a 7-0 lead.

BW added an unearned run in the seventh.

Wahl led the Terriers, going 3-for-3 with three runs scored, while Perrotta went 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI’s and a run scored.

In Game 2, the Yellow Jackets took control of the game from the get go, scoring six times in the first inning.

BW would add four more in the second and two in the third, before the game was called after five innings due to the NCAA’s 8-run rule.
