Marauder Softball got back in the win column with a 10-2 victory over Riverside on Tuesday.
Kaitlyn Cronin got the Marauders on the board early with a sacrifice fly to right field, scoring Nayely Delgado in the 1st inning. The Tigers evened it up scoring a run in the top of the 3rd. But AVC would answer back in a big way with 5 runs in the bottom of the inning. Alexa Alvarez hit an RBI double to score Delgado. Cronin then singled for her second RBI to score Alvarez.
The Marauder defense played well with no errors in the game. Garrett led the charge striking 8 of 23 batters faced in five innings.
Antelope Valley's bats stayed hot in the 4th inning when Savannah Moakley hit her third home run of the year. The freshman finished 2-for-2 with 1 RBI. Moakley leads the team in homers and also has a team-leading .462 batting average. She's also tied with Arroyo with a team-high 6 RBIs.
Ariel Nieto extended the lead with an RBI single, bringing Delgado home. Delgado finished 1-for-2 with a stolen base and scored three times. Nieto finished 1-for-1 with an RBI and scored twice.
Garrett kept the run going with another RBI-hit to score Alvarez.
The Marauders will try to get back to .500 with a win against a tough Ventura team on Thursday. Game time is set for 2:30 pm at AVC.
