On the mound, Emily Humphery was a stalwart for Wesleyan, throwing all five innings and allowing only two earned runs while securing the win.
In game two, Wesleyan continued their offensive onslaught with a 17-9 victory. Molly Alejandrino once again had a standout game, going 3-for-3 with five RBIs. At the top of the order, Lillie Baumbach and Alexis Whitfield combined for four hits and an impressive seven runs scored. The Lady Bishops dominated with a twelve-run fourth inning, putting the game out of reach for Averett.
Wesleyan improves to 13-4 on the season and will travel to Virginia Wesleyan next Thursday. The first pitch of the DH is set for 2 pm.
