SALEM, Ore--- Top-ranked Southern Oregon Softball (11-1) won its fourth and fifth consecutive games in Salem on Saturday. SOU beat No. 23 Corban 6-3 and 5-1. 

Southern Oregon is now 11-1 on the season. 

Game One: 

Southern Oregon ace Gabby Sandoval stayed undefeated and went all seven innings for game one. Sandoval, coming off a no hitter, allowed three runs off six hits. Sandoval also registered five strikeouts. Sandoval is now 5-0 on the 2021 season. 

Sandoval's opposition, Holly Gonzales, also went all seven innings. Gonzales allowed six runs on nine hits but also had six errors. Gonzales is not 2-2 on the season. 

Corban started off on the right foot. In the bottom of the 1st, with SOU not scoring in the top, Corban scored off two walks. Uppinghou was walked and that brought Makiah Johnson in. Right after that, Samantha Martinez was hit by a pitch and that brought Kaylee Buhrkuhl in to make it a 2-0 game. 

Then it was all SOU. In the top of the 2nd, Tayler Walker sent one out of the park and SOU got within one. 

In the top of the 4th, it was Walker again. Walker singled to left and brought in Lauren Quirke. The Quirke score gave SOU a 2-2 tie. 

Quirke would be brought in again in the top of the 6th. This time by a Riley Donovan double. The 6th came to an end with SOU up 3-2. 

The Raiders got hot in the final inning and scored three times. Shimek reached first on a wild pitch and Allie Stines scored. Then, Quirke singled to right and brought Shimek in. Moments later, Donovan singled to left and brought in Quirke. That would be the final run of the game and SOU won, 6-3. 

Game Two:

Game two was pretty lopsided in SOU's favor, 5-1. 

Lauren Quirke followed up Saturday's perfect game with a seven-inning-outing. Quirke only allowed one run on three hits. Quirke registered four strikeouts and improved to 3-1 on the year. 

The bats started hot for the top-ranked Raiders. In the top of the 1st, Shimek singled to center and then stole second. Quirke would follow it with a home run that made it a 2-0 game. 

Quirke was not done there. In the top of the 3rd, Qurike doubled to bring in Shimek and the Raiders extended the lead to 3-0. 

Corban scored its lone run in the bottom of the 3rd. It was an unearned run for Tabby Humphrey after she had already stolen third. 

In the 5th, Stines singled and brought in Olivia Mackey to extend the lead to 4-1. 

The Raiders kept the scoring going in the top of the 6th. Erika Marquez singled up the middle which brought in Steph Collett. That made it 5-1 which would be the eventual final score. 

Coming up:

Southern Oregon will be back in action on Friday, March 5. The Raiders will have a four-game series at Bushnell (0-6). The first pitch will be thrown at 2 p.m.
