The Denison softball team earned a doubleheader split with Marietta on Wednesday in Granville.  The Pioneers won the opener, 3-2, in eight innings, while the Big Red won the nightcap 3-0.

Roughly 24 hours removed from her first-career shutout, sophomore pitcher Rachel Laughlin orchestrated another masterful performance in game two against Marietta.  Similar to Tuesday's outing, Laughlin scattered four hits and struck out six batters en route to her second shutout of the season.  The sophomore improved to 8-4 on the year.

Laughlin received run support in the second frame.  After a pair of walks and a single by Heather Larsen loaded the bases, senior Hannah Price drew a free pass that brought Jess Robertson home.  First-year Julie Rooney followed up with a base hit up the middle that scored Larsen.  The Big Red tacked on another run in the fifth when Price hit a leadoff home run to left field.

In the opener, Marietta jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the fourth inning behind an RBI double by Michelle Sayre and a single up the middle from Chelsea Obrzut.  It remained a two-run game until the sixth inning.  With runners at second and third, sophomore Meghan Edwards knocked in Rooney on a sacrifice fly to center.  DU tied the contest at 2-2 thanks to a double to right by Laughlin.

The Pioneers broke the tie in the eighth inning when Sayre singled in Sarah Mayo with one out.  Sophomore Kelsey Hager minimized the damage by striking out Hannah Tarski and Obrzut to end the frame.   Marietta pitcher Alexis O'Hair answered by retiring the side in order to secure the win.

Price went 2-for-4 with a run scored, while Rooney, Laughlin, Emily Lipsitz and Larsen each logged a hit.  Hager allowed three runs on nine hits with six strikeouts in eight innings of work.

Denison moves 13-11 on the year, while the Pioneers sit at 12-10.  The Big Red returns to action next Wednesday against Mount St. Joseph.  Game one of the doubleheader is scheduled to being at 5:30 p.m.
