DU rebounds with NCAC sweep

Kait Fiore went 3-for-6 in DU's doubleheader sweep of Wittenberg.
Kait Fiore went 3-for-6 in DU's doubleheader sweep of Wittenberg.

Denison rebounded from Friday's sweep at Ohio Wesleyan by taking a pair of North Coast Athletic Conference contests from Wittenberg on Saturday.  The Big Red won the opener 3-1, and took the nightcap 4-1.

With the sweep, DU sits in a five-way tie for the third place in the conference.  Denison (6-6), DePauw (6-6), Wooster (5-5), Wittenberg (7-7) and Ohio Wesleyan (6-6) are all .500 in league action heading into the final week of the season.

The Tigers took an early 1-0 lead in game one behind a triple from Laura Rose.  The Big Red quickly answered in the bottom half of the first.  After a leadoff double and a wild pitch put senior Hannah Price on third base, first-year Julie Rooney dropped a single into short left field that scored Price.  DU broke the tie in the sixth inning.  With two on and one out, sophomore Heather Larsen hit a double into left center that scored Meghan Edwards.  Rookie Emily Lipsitz followed with a ground ball to second that allowed Jess Robertson to score.

Sophomore Becca Dyer improved to 4-2 after allowed two hits and striking out nine in seven innings, while Julia Williams suffered the loss after giving up three runs on eight hits with four Ks.

In game two, Denison scored on a wild pitch in the first to take the early 1-0 advantage.  A base hit by Kait Fiore in the fourth doubled the Big Red lead, while a two-out, two-run homer by Robertson in the fifth put Denison in front 4-0.

Sophomore hurler Kelsey Hager faced a bit of trouble in the top of the seventh when a pair of walks and a single loaded the bases with no outs.  Hager got some help from her defense when Rooney turned an unassisted double play at third base.  The Tigers pushed across a run on a two-out single, but a pop out to Hager ended the Wittenberg rally.  The sophomore scattered eight hits, allowed one run and fanned two en route to her seventh win of the season.

Fiore and Rooney both posted three hits and an RBI on the day, while Price, Edwards and Robertson each scored twice.

Denison (19-15) returns to action on Monday when they travel to Defiance College.  Game one of the doubleheader is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m.
