Prescott, Ariz. -- After the MCU Mariner softball team dropped 12-1 in only five innings, they bounced back beating the Eagles 4-1 in game two.
Game 1: MCU 1 vs ERAU 12
After giving up five in the first, the Mariners struggled to gain momentum. MCU got on the board in the fourth but the Eagles responded with five more in the bottom of the inning forcing the mercy rule to go into effect when no more runs were scored in the top of the fifth inning.
Seven hits were tallied in the game, two of which were from Marissa Padilla, the senior from Santa Monica.
Game 2: MCU 4 vs ERAU 1
Although Marymount dropped one in the first, they had a much different result in the afternoon. The Mariners tied the game in the second when Sonia Escalara singled up the middle. Lawriell Kline came in to pinch run and Princess Nava singled to score Kline.
MCU would take the lead in the fifth and sealed the game in the seventh with two insurance runs.
Marissa Padilla would lead the offense again with two more hits and three RBI's.
The Mariners improve their Cal Pac conference record to 5-5 (10-18 overall). MCU will continue the series against ERAU tomorrow with a double header starting at 12pm.
