Phoenix Split Union College double headers | Lebanon

Cumberland’s softball team (5-3, 3-1 MSC) took on the Union College Bulldogs (3-5, 0-0) in a double header at Billy Dee Ross Stadium on Monday.

The Cumberland bats never got going in the first game of the double header, resulting in an 8-3 defeat for the Phoenix.

Mariah Clark threw herself for the Phoenix and received the loss after allowing six runs in four innings. Second pitcher Emily Cooper came in to relieve Clark in the fifth inning. Cooper allowed two runs, five hits, and recorded three punchouts.

Individually for the Phoenix, Kenzie France and Madison Woodruff led the way off the record, both going 2-3. Ashtyn Blair recorded the only other Phoenix hit in the game.

Cumberland got the bats going in game two with a 7-4 win.

The Phoenix got off to a hot start with a three-run output in the first inning. Senior shortstop Madison Woodruff hit left field for an RBI to score the first Cumberland run of the game. Clark stepped to the plate and delivered a two-part home run into deep midfield. The explosion marked Clark’s third homer of the season.

Bela Soto threw the entire game for the Phoenix and scored her third win that year. Soto gave up 10 hits and four runs but got the Phoenix out of trouble in key scenarios for victory.

Tyra Graham and Madison Woodruff both went 2-3 off the record individually.
