College of the Redwoods starting pitcher Alyssa Bergquist combined for 18 strikeouts in 14 innings in a doubleheader at College of Marin on Friday and the Corsairs swept the non-conference twinbill, winning the opener 5-0 and the nightcap 11-5.
Bergquist threw a two-hit shutout in the opener with 11 strikeouts, and went 2-for-3 at the plate with a run and a walk.
“(Alyssa) was focused today and I thought she did a great job,” said CR head coach Maggie White. “She battled for us.”
As a team, CR combined for 22 hits in the two games.
CR center fielder Allison Baumeister went a combined 6-for-8, while third baseman Ariana Spalding went 4-for-7 and left fielder Kelsey Jones came on strong in the second game, finishing 2-for-3 with a double and a triple and four RBIs. Her triple came in the fourth inning, which cleared the bases and gave CR a 7-2 lead.
In the opener, the Corsairs took a 2-0 lead in the second inning, then added three more runs in the top of the fourth as Spalding hit a two-RBI double for a 5-0 lead.
“We made some mistakes today, but any time you can get a couple wins it’s a great feeling,” White said. “Hopefully we can come back out tomorrow and do the same thing.”
With the wins, the Corsairs improve to 4-7 on the season, and will play next in a doubleheader today at San Jose City College, starting at 11 a.m.
“We played well enough to get the wins and that’s all that counts,” White said. “I was glad to see us get some work on the bases and have some quality at-bats.”
