Big Red shuts down Kenyon offense

Hannah Price had 3 doubles, 3 RBIs and 3 runs against Kenyon.
Hannah Price had 3 doubles, 3 RBIs and 3 runs against Kenyon.

Denison combined for 14 runs and 21 hits in a pair of North Coast Athletic Conference wins over Kenyon on Wednesday.  DU took the opener 9-0 in five innings, and won the nightcap, 5-0.

The story of the day was the pitching clinic put on by sophomores Becca Dyer and Kelsey Hager.  The duo combined to scatter five hits and strikeout 17 batters in the twinbill sweep.

Dyer secured her fifth victory after giving up just two hits and fanning eight batters in five innings of work.  Hager followed Dyer's performance with a three-hit shutout of her own.  The sophomore struck out nine and walked three en route to her ninth win of the season.

In game one, Dyer got some major run support in the fourth inning.  Already ahead 1-0, three-consecutive singles loaded the bases with no outs.  Sophomore Gretchen Staubach drew a base-on-balls that scored Jess Robertson, while senior Kait Fiore followed with a fielder's choice to the shortstop that drove in Heather Larsen.

Senior Hannah Price and first-year Julie Rooney logged RBI singles, while a ground ball by Rachel Laughlin, a single by Robertson and a sacrifice fly by Larsen extended the Big Red lead to 9-0 after four frames.  With two on in the fifth, the sophomore hurler struck out mound opponent Maddy Stark to end the contest.

An RBI double in the first game by Laughlin gave Denison a 1-0 advantage in the nightcap.  DU added three more runs in the fourth thanks to a two-run double by Price and an RBI double to center by Rooney.  The Big Red tacked on an insurance run in the fifth when rookie Emily Lipsitz sent a base hit up the middle that scored Larsen.

Price went 4-for-6 with three doubles, three RBIs and three runs in the doubleheader sweep.  All nine hitters in the lineup scored in the opener, while eight of the nine drove in a run.  In game two, six of the Big Red's 12 hits were doubles.  Laughlin was 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI, while Larsen, Lipsitz and Fiore all posted two hits.

Denison improves to 23-15 overall and 8-6 in the NCAC, while Kenyon falls to 11-25 and 3-11 in league play.  DU closes out the regular season on Saturday when they host Hiram College.  Game one is slated to begin at 1 p.m.
