After a disappointing two losses at Pitt CC Wednesday, Southeastern softball rebounded with two 9-0 wins over league foe Surry CC. SCC earned its 28th and 29th victories of the season.

Kailey Paul faced one batter over the minimum in the five-inning win in game one. Paul allowed a double to Surry’s second hitter. A one-out walk in the second inning was followed by a fielder’s choice, before catcher Mikaela Smith erased a would-be Surry base stealer for the third out. For the game, Pauls allowed one hit, one walk and struck out one.

Offensively, the Rams pounded out 13 hits. Hailey Sarvis was 3-3 with a triple and two RBIs. Mikaela Smith also had three hits, including a RBI double. MacKenzie Benton blasted a solo home run and run-scoring triple. Kaleigh Patrick connected for a two-run homer in the fourth inning.

Cameron Sharpe.

Game two was Cameron Sharpe’s world and everyone else just got to play in it. Sharpe pitched a four-hit shut out. At the plate, she blasted two home runs, a two-run shot in the fourth and a walk-off grand slam in the fifth. The grand slam gave SCC a 9-0 lead and ended the game.

Every Rams batter reached base and eight of nine contributed a base hit. Nakota Bullard had two hits. Sarvis, Smith and Patrick each doubled. Sharpe relied heavily on her defense as every Surry batter put the ball in play. There was one exception. Surry’s lead off hitter was called out for making contact with the ball outside of the batter’s box.

Southeastern, 29-9, will try to better last season’s 30 regular-season win total when it travels to Sumter, SC, April 19 to face USC-Sumter in a doubleheader.
