Brevard, Agnes Scott Clash Tuesday

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. – The Brevard softball team looks to rebound from a pair of weekend setbacks to Emmanuel on Tuesday when it heads to Decatur, Ga., to take on Agnes Scott in a doubleheader with the first game beginning at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.

The Tornados (8-16) were unable to overcome the combination of Emmanuel's Erin Harden and Taylor Saxon on the mound held the Brevard softball team to eight hits and one run over two games as the visiting Lions earned a doubleheader sweep (6-0, 8-1) at Ives-Lemel Field on Sunday afternoon.

While Brevard (8-15) was held scoreless in the opening game, Teegan Bullock finished 2-for-3 from the plate. Joining her with one hit each were Sara Lallier (1-3) and Jordan Hawk (1-1).

The Tornados scored their lone run of the game in the first inning of the second game. Lallier dropped a double into left field to open the first inning, moving to third on a sacrifice bunt by Bullock. Emily White followed with a triple into right field, scoring Lallier for the first run of the game.

White was the top Brevard hitter in the game, going 2-for-3 from the plate with an RBI, while Lallier (1-3) and Bullock (1-3) also recorded a hit.

Those performances kept Bullock atop the lineup in batting average (.400) as she is 24-for-60 on the season with a double. White leads the team in extra-base hits (eight), due in large part to six doubles.

Ricki Kuhn (5-10) remains the top pitcher on the Brevard staff, topping the team in wins, innings pitched (71.1), strikeouts (26) and fewest walks allowed (26) to go along with a 4.32 ERA.

Agnes Scott is on a five-game losing streak that includes a 9-1 and 8-0 setback to the Tornados on March 30. The Scotties are 5-25 overall and 4-10 at home this season.

Cecilia Siegal is the top hitter for Agnes Scott, posting a .346 batting average after going 27-of-78 from the plate. Siegal has connected on five doubles, tying for the team lead in that mark with Alexei Young who has seven extra-base hits.

Kayla Quesenberry (3-5) has the most wins for the Scotties pitching staff, while Caitlin Weaver has logged the most innings (68.1) along with the most strikeouts (26).
