(Walnut, CA) The Mt. SAC Softball team pounded out 13 hits for 11 runs and easily defeated visiting Pasadena City College, 11-0, in five innings Tuesday (March 1) in a South Coast Conference game.
With the win, the Mounties improved to 13-1 overall and 7-0 in the conference.
The 11 hits were the ninth time this season in double figures for the Mounties.
Collecting four of those 11 hits was freshman Brianna Goris going 4-4, two runs scored, five RBIs, two doubles, and a pair of two-run home runs.
"Honestly, right now I'm not stressing too much and just focusing on my pitches and what I need to do to benefit the team," Goris said. "I couldn't do it without them.
"I love seeing our subs come in because they just fall right into place like they were ready from the get-go. I'm so proud of them."
Twenty players saw action in the shortened game.
Designated player Desiree Bravo was the only other player with two or more hits, which included a double. Seven other players collected one hit apiece.
Picking up her third win of the season was pitcher Serena Navarrete (3-0). The sophomore was nearly perfect in her four innings of work, allowing only a single up the middle in the second inning. Reliever Gillian Molina pitched the final inning for the Mounties.
Mt. SAC broke the game open in the second inning with six runs, sending 11 batters to the plate.
Highlighting the inning, was the first of two home runs in the game for Goris, who hit a two-run smash to center field.
"It doesn't matter who we face," Mt. SAC assistant coach Vicky Gutierrez said. "We're Mt. SAC Softball all the time and I'm glad that we came out strong (Tuesday)."
