Strong Pitching, Hitting Leads Softball to Series Win
A strong pitching performance by firstie Renee Poirier of the Army West Point Softball Team and a balanced offensive effort guided the Black Knights to an 8-0 run-rule victory in the series finale at Lafayette on Sunday afternoon.
The Black Knights, who improved to 15-19 on the season and 4-2 in Patriot League play, received a stellar pitching performance from Poirier in the circle as the Plainville, Mass., native struck out seven over 5.0 innings of work while allowing just two hits.
The offense was clicking early and often as the visitors slugged nine hits on the afternoon, including a Taylor Drayton home run and a double by Ally Snelling. Snelling boasted a game-high three hits with her double to go along with a walk, run scored and RBI. Drayton drove in a team-high three runs in the game as well. Read more.
