KCKCC SPLITS WITH DODGE CITY
The Lady Blue Devils won the opener in defeating Dodge City 5-3 before losing to 6-2. The splits left the Blue Devils 8-6 in conference play and 12-6 overall heading into a doubleheader at first place Highland (15-1) Tuesday. KCKCC then returns home to host Maple Woods Friday at 2 and 4 p.m. and a University of Kansas club team Saturday at 1-3 p.m.
The Blue Devils backed Ford's 7-hit pitching with 16 hits in the 5-3 win over Dodge City as Santiago and Morisette each had three and Scales, Ford and Megan Dike two each. KCKCC took a 2-0 lead in the first on singles by Santiago and Morisette, Holroyd's sacrifice fly and Barnhart's double and added two more in the second on Scales' two-out single following hits by Ford and Dike.
A two-run home run in the sixth inning by Amanda Holroyd was the lone highlight in the 6-2 loss to Dodge City. Elizabeth Seimears took the loss, giving up 12 hits. "Elizabeth pitched well enough to win but our defense gave them a couple of runs," said KCKCC Coach Kacy Tillery. "But we continue to swing the bats with Santiago and Scales at the top of the order and Morisette, Holroyd and Barnhart in the middle."
