Saints shut down Lady Pioneer bats

Mercyhurst North East pitching limited Alfred State College to just six hits in a doubleheader sweep on Saturday afternoon in North East, PA.  The Lady Saints won the opener 13-0 and the nightcap 2-0 to improve to 20-11 on the year and 7-1 in WNYAC play while the Pioneers are now 9-12.

Christina Loder (Brantford, ONT) collected the lone hit in game one of the doubleheader.  MNE scored 11 runs in the first inning to put the game out of reach.

Jessica Herbst (Naples) allowed just four hits in a complete game effort but was the tough luck loser.  Loder was the lone Pioneer with multiple hit finishing 2 for 3.

The Lady Pioneers return to action on Sunday when they host Jefferson CC in a Noon doubleheader.
