Limestone Blanks Lees-McRae

The visiting Limestone College Saints swept the Lees-McRae College Lady Bobcats this afternoon in Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Conference action. The Saints shutout the Lady Bobcats in both games, winning game one 4-0 and game two 9-0.

Amanda Dodson took the mound in game one giving up three earned runs. The Lady Bobcats struggled at the plate, managing just two hits. The defense for Lees-McRae wasn't much help to Dodson either, committing three errors.

Nicole Baxter started on the mound for the home side in game two but ran into to trouble early walking a pair of Lady Saints. After giving up a pair of homeruns and the Lady Bobcats trailing 7-0, Lauren Gisler relieved Baxter in the third inning. After closing the third with the final out, Gisler, (pictured top left), gave up a two run shot in the fourth as the Saints cruised to the victory.

The Lady Bobcats will return to action Sunday afternoon when CVAC foe Coker College visits for a doubleheader. Game times are set for 1:00pm and 3:00pm.
