Coming right off a sweep over powerhouse Douglas then being named the #1 team in the Under Armour NWAC Coaches’ Poll, Bellevue College softball came away with a split in yesterday’s doubleheader at Edmonds. The games were Bellevue’s second in three days against top-ranked teams, as the Tritons were ranked fifth coming into the game.
In game one, Edmonds’ Cecilia Robbins ran her record to 7-0 in the circle by holding Bellevue’s hot bats to only three runs. Although BC jumped out 1-0 in the first inning on a Tori McDowell single, Edmonds put up five runs in the middle innings that was enough for Robbins. Bellevue was unable to get anything going in the final frames with two three-up, three-down innings.
In game two, with Robbins out of the circle, Bellevue put up six runs in the first three innings then blew open the game with an eight-spot in the fourth to put the game away 15-5. The contest was ended early due to the run-rule. The Bulldogs took advantage of 10 walks issued by Edmonds pitchers but also pounded out 13 hits as Tatum Dow had two doubles while Nashoni Boyd and McDowell each homered.
Bellevue is still atop the North Region with an 8-2 record (19-4 overall). The ‘dogs have their sixth game this week as they have their third doubleheader tomorrow at Everett. First pitch is set for 12:00 p.m.
