Redwoods softball coach Maggie White said earlier this week that she was excited about her team’s offense this season. On Friday, the Corsairs didn’t disappoint.
CR exploded for 28 hits to sweep a doubleheader at De Anza, winning the opener 8-1 and the nightcap 11-1.
In game one, Redwoods broke open a tight game with four runs in the top of the fifth, and that was more than enough for pitcher Ashley Stockwell, who got her first win of the season.
At the plate, Gizelle Lucero and Megan Dunlap each finished with a pair of hits to lead the offense, which accounted for 10 hits in the win and got contributions from several players.
The offensive onslaught continued in the second game, with Lucero leading an 18-hit performance, going 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles and three RBIs.
Newcomer Megan Cullinane also had a big game, finishing 3-for-4 with a double and a pair of RBIs, while allowing just one run on four hits and striking out three in the pitcher’s circle.
Karlie Murray, Madison Acres, Dawn Waterman and Dunlap each added two hits, while Phoebe Marsh had a double.
The Corsairs (2-2) will play another doubleheader today, taking on San Mateo and American River in San Mateo.
