ALFRED, N.Y. - The Pitt-Bradford softball team swept Alfred State Friday by scores of 11-0 and 19-2 to extend its winning streak to four games. The Panthers won both games in five innings while earning their second straight doubleheader sweep.
Pitt-Bradford led 1-0 after the first inning in game one on Madison East's RBI single, and the Panthers put the game away with a 10-run second frame. Lindsey Hull's two-run base hit ignited the big inning, and Melissa Nye drilled a bases-clearing double to centerfield to pad the lead.
Sam Hribal was sharp on the mound, allowing just three hits and a pair of walks. She struck out four while picking up her third win of the year. It was the first shutout thrown by a Panther pitcher this season.
The Panthers scored a season-high 19 runs in game two in part to their patience. The Pioneers' Jordan Leonard issued 16 walks, and Pitt-Bradford also touched her up for 10 hits.
The Panthers led 6-0 after the first, and a 12-run fifth inning turned the game into a rout. Dadzaa had a season-high four hits, and Nye tallied two more hits. Morgan Bellush, Kennedy Cratty and Nye each drove in two runs, and East scored four times.
Liz Dzurisin earned the win in the circle, surrendering seven hits and two runs. She walked one and struck out one.
Pitt-Bradford improves to 11-20 on the season and hosts Franciscan Monday at 3 p.m. in an important AMCC doubleheader.
