Game one saw a closely contested game as both teams battled back and forth. The Tars and Spartans each traded runs in the first inning to end the inning at a stalemate, but Rollins tallied two runs to take a 3-1 lead.
After the Tars stumbled and committed three errors, Tampa scratched across a run to cut the lead to a 3-2 deficit heading into the top of the seventh inning. Shortstop Amber Pederson stepped up and belted a triple to give the Tars a base runner. Pederson later scored on a wild pitch from Heather Van Landingham to give the Tars a two run lead heading into the bottom of the seventh.
Christine Roser answered the bell in the circle for the Tars. Roser retired the side in the seventh to preserve the win. Roser gave up six hits and only one earned run in seven innings of work. She also helped her cause by going 2-for-4 in the game with an RBI.
Meredith Foster also provided offensive support, going 1-for-3 and two RBIs to fuel the attack for the Tars.
Game two of the doubleheader saw the Tars jump on the scoreboard in a hurry scoring a run in the first and two runs in the second inning to secure a 3-0 lead. That would be all the margin freshmen pitcher Kirsten Frame would need to secure the victory.
Frame leads the conference with a 22-2 record and continues to baffle opposing lineups. Frame pitched a no-hitter and only allowed two base runners all afternoon. She also collected six strikeouts to quell the Spartan lineup.
Offensively Kaycie Bevis, Lauren Caldwell and Pederson tallied two RBIs apiece to pace the offense. Krista Rodden also knocked in a run to round out the scoring for the Tars.
Since dropping a game to conference foe Florida Southern, the Tars have rattled of nine consecutive victories against conference opponents.
Next up for the Tars will be a home series against Eckerd starting Friday evening at 7 p.m.
