The Alfred State softball team earned their first doubleheader sweep of the season on Sunday defeating SUNY Delhi 2-0 and 6-3.  The Lady Pioneers improve to 7-25 on the year and have won three of their last four.

The Pioneers scored single runs in the 3rd and 5th.  In the 3rd, Alyssa Roache (Sherman) doubled to lead off the inning and scored on a wild pitch.  In the 5th, Rachel Slentz (Edmeston) doubled to lead off the inning and scored on a squeeze bunt by Lynn Wood (Westfield).

Alfred scored three runs in the 2nd and scored three more in the 4th after Delhi tied the game at 3-3 with three in their half of the 4th.  

In the 2nd, Roache had a RBI single and two more runs scored on a throwing error.  Wood executed another safety squeeze to score a run in the 4th and two more runs scored on another throwing error.

Clarissa Swain (Dansville) earned the win in the nightcap with a five-hit complete game.  She allowed three runs and struck out seven.  Potter was 2 for 3 at the plate.

The blue & gold have two scheduled doubleheaders left in their 2013 season.  They travel to Erie CC for a 3:30 p.m. doubleheader on Tuesday and then host Penn College on Thursday starting at 3 p.m.
