GRANVILLE, Ohio – Thanks to a run-filled game two, Denison softball split a doubleheader with Thomas More College on Sunday afternoon in Granville, falling 1-0 in game one, and winning the second game in five innings, 12-4.

Following a lack of runs in the first game on the day, the Big Red piled on 14 hits in game two to give starter Colleen Hoffman plenty of room to work with once she reached the fourth inning.

After Denison took a 2-0 advantage in the bottom of the first after senior Mckinly Vazquez ripped a two-RBI single up the middle to score Laura Bagan and Amanda Howell, the Saints rebounded in the top of the third when an RBI single from Andrea Gahan tied the game at 2-2.

In the next at-bat, Thomas More took the lead on a two-run home run to right center, entering the home half of the inning with a 4-2 lead.

The Big Red didn't waste any time to counter in the bottom of the third as Lauren Secaras opened the inning with a solo home run to right field, and later in the inning with a runner on and two outs, Lindsey Clemson took the lead back for DU with a bomb of her own down the leftfield line to go back up 5-4 after three innings played.

Now leading 7-4 in the bottom of the fifth, the Big Red added another run on an RBI single from pinch-hitter Brennah Dutcher, while a single from Emilie Fisher plated Dutcher two batters later to take a 9-4 lead.  

Going to their second relief arm of the game, the Saints chose Lauren Willett with runners on first and second and no outs. After Sarah Herold loaded the bases on a single to right, Secaras drove in two more on a single to left center, taking an 11-4 lead.

Following a pinch-hit single from Marrae Saucedo to load the bases, Bagan scored Herold from third with a sacrifice fly to right field, cutting the game short due to the run-rule and giving the DU their first win of the day.

Secaras finished the game going 3-for-3 with three runs batted in and two runs scored. Vazquez and Clemson recorded two RBI's each on 2-for-3 performances while Hoffman earned the win in the circle, allowing four runs on six hits and tallying three strikeouts in a complete five innings of work.

In game one, Herold and TMC's Alix DeDreu looked to turn the contest into a pitchers' duel from the start as the pair combined to allow a total of four hits through the first four innings of play.

In the bottom of the fifth with the game still scoreless, the Big Red had an opportunity to score the game's first run with Ricki Asher on second with one out. In the next at-bat, Fisher grounded out to the shortstop, and on the throw to first, Asher attempted to take third, but a throw from the Saints' first baseman Gahan beat Asher to the base as she was tagged out for the final out of the inning.

In the top of the sixth, a two-out RBI double to center for Gahan proved to be enough as the Big Red went down in order over the final two innings of play.

DeDreu earned the win with a complete game shutout on three hits and one strikeout, while Herold recorded the loss with one run allowed on six hits and eight strikeouts in seven innings of work.

The Big Red will return to action on Tuesday, April 10 for a home doubleheader with NCAC-foe Wittenberg University set to begin at 3:30 p.m.
