WINTER PARK, Fla. (February 9, 2019) – Rollins got another pair of dominant pitching performances as they swept doubleheader play against West Georgia at Rollins Softball Stadium. Ashley Worrell tallied her second no-hitter in three starts, as the Tars took game one 6-0. The Tars then improved to 20-1 at home with a second shutout, taking game two 2-0.
The Tars improve to 27-5 overall in 2019. The Wolves drop below the .500 mark, ending the day at 18-19 overall.
Jordan Davis went 4-4 with two runs scored and four steals to lead the Tars offense. Ashley Worrell tallied her fourth homerun and two RBI in game, as did Grace Street. Talia Kentoffio blasted her first homerun of the season. Worrell again did not give up a single hit, striking out four and walking four in her no-hit effort.
The Tars flexed their muscles in the first inning, growing an insurmountable lead. Davis led off with an infield single. Worrell helped her own cause, blasting a no doubt homerun over the left field wall, making the score 2-0. The Tars lead would then double their advantage with back-to-back homeruns from Street and Kentoffio.
It was Davis who would spark a rally in the second as well. The senior again singled and stole second before scoring on a Lindsay Gehring single. Gehring would then tally the Tars' sixth run on a Street base hit.
Worrell made easy work of the Wolves batters down the stretch, including three up, three down frames in the fourth and sixth, as the Rollins defense locked down the freshman's second career no-hitter.
Jordan Davis continued her perfect evening, going 3-3 in game two. The centerfielder scored both Rollins' runs, and added one more stolen base. Lindsay Gehring drove in both Tars' scores. Abby Summers tossed a gem for the Tars, giving up just three scattered hits over a complete seven innings. The senior struck out 14 Wolves batters, giving her 114 on the season.
Davis led off the first with a bunt single, then advanced to second on a West Georgia error. After making her way to third on a Worrell fly ball, Davis scampered home on a Gehring sacrifice bunt.
The third inning played out similarly to the first with Davis reaching base, then stealing second and scoring on a Gehring single.
Summers would shut down the Wolves bats for the rest of the contest. The Weston, Missouri native fanned the side in the fifth and the seventh.
The Tars will return to SSC action when they visit the Eckerd Tritons on Friday, March 29, to open a three game series. First pitch is set for 7 p.m.
