The Frontenac softball team took a pair of games from Northeast on Monday night.
Frontenac won the first game 14-2 in five innings. Emily Barto pitched the whole game, striking out seven and allowing just one hit. Barto also hit 2-3 with a run scored and three RBIs.
Meghan Winden went 2-3 and scored a run. Frontenac scored three runs in the first two innings before erupting for five in the third and six in the fifth.
The Raider bats warmed up more quickly in the second game, as Frontenac put up six in the first inning and six in the third to win 12-0.
Barto pitched the first two innings, striking out three before she was replaced by Lindsay Gorham, who struck out three in the final three innings. Between them, Barto and Gorham pitched a one-hit shutout.
Winden went 2-3 with an RBI and scored two runs. Gorham also went 2-3 with an RBI, and scored once. Nana Fields was 1-2 with two runs scored.
“I didn’t think we hit the ball very well, but we put it in play,” said Frontenac coach Cassie Buche. “We played much better in the second game. I asked them to work on the mental aspect of the game, and they did a lot better job of that.
“Emily had a bit of an off night on the mound a threw a lot of pitches,” Buche said. “Lindsay did a great job of coming in, mixing things up and keeping the hitters on their toes.”
Frontenac (11-3, 6-2) will host Southeast on Thursday.
