Game One Box Score
Game Two Box Score

The Marist Red Foxes smashed the cover off the ball in Poughkeepsie, NY Wednesday, hitting 8 home runs in their doubleheader sweep of LaSalle.

The Red Foxes have lots of heavy hitters, and they all took part in a homer clinic today against poor LaSalle. Two home runs each by Megan Lamoureux and Alyssa Zahka, and singles by Nicole DiVirgilio, Haley Birnbaum, Sarah Carmody and Caitlin Schell produced 18 runs in this non conference doubleheader. If you look at the "power stats" at the top of this page, it's loaded with Marist players and now you know why.

Emily Osterhaus threw a one hitter in the first game, striking out 8 for her 11th win of the season. Paige Lewis struck out 5 in the second game to pick up her MAAC leading 13th win of the season.

The Red Foxes are off this weekend, and will next play on Tuesday against Army before heading west for a pair of crucial MAAC doubleheaders at Canisius and Niagara.
