Blue Hawks snap Jimmies 18 game winning streak

Jamestown, ND- The Blue Hawk Softball team swept the University of Jamestown in an NSAA double header on Wednesday at the University of Jamestown. The Blue Hawks (32-8,13-3) took on the Jimmies (29-12, 14-2) who were on an 18 game winning streak before the day started.

Game One, DSU 5 UJ 3

Freshman pitcher Alex Watson got the start in game one and held her own on the mound against the Jimmies. Watson pitched 7 complete innings giving up 4 hits, 2 walks and struck out 3. The Jimmies scored two unearned runs in the bottom of the first inning. In the top of the 4th inning the Blue Hawks matched their two runs with a two out single by Rebecca Lopez that scored Regan Lawrence and Brianna Grayson. In the bottom of the 4th the Jimmies answered back with a run. In the top of the 5th with one out, Alex Vargas hit a solo home run to deep center to tie it at three all. The Blue Hawks scored in one run in the top of the 6th and again in the top of the 7th to give them the 5-3 lead and that was all Watson would need to go the distance and get the win.

The Blue Hawks rattled off 9 hits off Jamestown starting pitcher Hannah Dunnigan. The offense was led by lead off batter Rebecca Lopez who was 3-4 with 2 RBI's. Brianna Grayson was 2-4 with an RBI and Alex Vargas was 1-4 with a solo home run.

Game Two, DSU 5 UJ 1

After snapping the Jimmies 18 game winning streak with the win in game one the Blue Hawks kept the momentum in game two. Regan Lawrence took the mound and much like Watson in game one held the Jimmies to 1 un earned run on 3 hits, 1 walk and struck out 7. Tied at one all after four complete innings the Blue Hawks scored 3 runs in the top of the 5th and capitalized on Jamestown errors. In the top of the 7th Brianna Grayson added to the scoreboard with a one out solo home run to center field to give the Blue Hawks the 5-1 lead.

Despite Jimmies starting pitcher Brittney Rheault striking out 8 Blue Hawk hitters, she walked 5 and gave up 8 hits. Regan Lawrence helped her cause at the plate going 2-3 with 2 RBI's and 2 runs scored. Brianna Grayson was 2-3 with an RBI and 1 run scored. Monique Yslas was 2-4 with an RBI.

The Blue Hawks will travel to Spearfish, SD Thursday April 23rd to play NCAA DII Black Hills State in a non-conference double header. They will finish up the North Star Athletic Association Conference schedule with a four game series against Presentation College on Saturday and Sunday at the North Softball Complex in Dickinson.
