Wesley sweeps Eastern to wrap up regular season

DOVER, Del. – The Wesley College softball team rolled through the Eastern Eagles in a non-conference doubleheader on Tuesday to wrap up the 2017 regular season.

Wesley recorded 14 runs in the nightcap to cruise to a five-inning 14-2 win over Eastern to clinch to doubleheader sweep.

Each Wesley starter registered at least one hit in the finale of the doubleheader. Mackay and Royer each collected three hits and two runs scored while Royer cracked a three-run home run in the fourth inning. Mackay drove in four runs in the win.

DiRubbio and Marcano also scored twice for Wesley while DiRubbio added two hits for Wesley.

Karina Cardona notched a two-run double in the third inning.
