The Ducks had some double-header action today as they took on Loyola Marymount & Seattle University. Some rain dampened the mood early in the day, and the games got moved back to 5:30 and 8:30 respectively.
The Ducks came out hot in the first game against the Loyola Marymount Lions, hitting four home runs in the first three innings. It was the top recruit freshman left fielder, Deijah Pangilinan who led the Ducks, hitting two of those homers and finishing with three RBI.
The Ducks led for most of the game, but it wasn’t all peaches and cream as the Lions put up four runs in the middle innings to pull the game within two points. The Ducks took care of business and finished the game with a 7-5 win though, behind a solid relief appearance and save from Brooke Yanez.
It was a late and cold start for the second game of the double-header against the Seattle Redhawks. A solo shot from Haley Cruse was all they had going early, but a mind-boggling nine run fourth inning buried the game out of reach from the Redhawks. They were able to score a couple runs and break up the no-hitter from Jordan Dail in the 5th inning, but that was about it for them as the Ducks came out on top 10-2.
