Senior Lauren McConnell yielded just one hit in the circle while pacing the Marquette bats with three doubles and three RBIs in an 11-0 mercy-rule victory at Lake Station on Thursday.
McConnell punched out eight batters in five innings pitched. The Lady Eagles’ lone hit came in the fourth inning.
Offensively, Marquette enjoyed a stellar afternoon. Sophomore Sara Molina went 3-for-4 with two runs scored, a double, and two batted in. Ally McConnell scored twice as part of a 3-for-4 day. Stacey Barron plated two and smacked a double as part of a 3-for-4 showing. Liv Hackett registered a run scored and an RBI as MQT improved to 2-2.
The Lady Blazers are set to host Hammond Clark this Saturday in a doubleheader at the Marquette Athletic Complex beginning at 11 am.
