ASHLAND, Ore. — It was an onslaught with the bats from the Southern Oregon Raiders softball team, tallying 20 runs in 10 innings while keeping their opponents from even tallying a single run. With the two wins on Saturday, SOU is now 30-2 this season after winning their last five games.

Game One:

Gabby Sandoval once again pitched a great game for the Raiders, grabbing her 106th career win (tied-fifth in the NAIA). She gave up just two hits spread out over five innings while striking out seven. The "super senior" is now 16-0 this season.

The offense was efficient and took advantage of some costly Providence errors. Riley Donovan led the way for the Raiders' offense that scored 8 runs in just four innings at the plate (only three runs were earned). The junior catcher went 3-for-3 with four RBIs and a home run. But the most impressive RBI came on a safety squeeze in the third inning that scored the speedy Hannah Shimek from third.

Donovan capped off a five-run fourth inning with a two-run no-doubter as the Raiders made quick work of the Argos, winning 8-0 in an hour and three minutes of play.

Game Two:

Hannah Stark got the start for the Raiders in game two, her fourth of the 2021 season. The freshman pitched three innings, allowing just three baserunners while striking out one Argo. Rylan Austin relieved her in the fourth and continued the dominating pitching performance. In her first pitching appearance as an SOU Raider, the Medford-native gave up just one hit in her two innings of work.

Once again, the good pitching was backed up by red hot offense from the Raiders. Lauren Quirke had two home runs while driving in three. Allie Stines also collected three RBIs with a bases-clearing double in the second inning.

The Raiders will hit the road next week to take on Eastern Oregon (10-19, 6-9 CCC) for a two-day, four-game series in La Grande, Oregon.
