Landreth Grand Slams, Multi-Homer Games Lead Offense
Angelina College’s Lady Roadrunners overcame a tough loss in Wednesday’s opener to bounce back with a win in the nightcap, salvaging a doubleheader split with Alvin College at the Phillips Family Sports Complex on the AC campus.
After falling 4-2 to the Dolphins in the early game, the Lady ‘Runners roared back in the second, with Leighton Landreth driving in six runs – including her second grand slam in the past three games – and Ashtyn Alvarez collecting her second home run of the day. Sara Mayes capped the 10-2 win with a two-run, walk-off single in the fifth inning.
The Lady Roadrunners followed Wednesday’s split with another split on Thursday, this time against non-conference foe Western Nebraska. AC dropped the opening game 13-10 – rallying from a 9-0 deficit in the first inning – despite Landreth’s second grand slam in two days. AC rebounded nicely in the nightcap, winning 12-0 behind two homers each from Mayes and Haley Primrose and another shot from Alvarez. Primrose finished the game with four RBI; Alvarez finished with three.
Mia Gilmore earned the win in the pitching circle, tossing four shutout innings and striking out three batters. Primrose finished off the fifth inning without allowing a run.
The Lady Roadrunners (18-6, 1-1) will host Blinn College in a doubleheader on Saturday scheduled for a 1 p.m. start at the Phillips Family Sports Complex on the AC campus.
