Myrtle Beach, SC – The Wolverines' bats have come alive since arriving in Myrtle Beach for Spring Break, winning their third straight game via mercy rule, 11-3, against St. Elizabeth. The team accumulated 12 hits during the beatdown of the Eagles and will look for a similar result tomorrow morning in the rematch. 

Wesley answered St. Elizabeth's two-run top of the first inning with two runs of their own. Brandi Dalious would sacrifice an out for a run, scoring Bianca Newsom from third base. Amanda Curry scored after an Eagles error. The team would bat around for Curry to step up to the plate with two outs in the bottom of the second. She slammed a two-run laser over the center field wall, giving Wesley the lead 4-2.

Brandi Dalious' three-run bomb to center gave the Wolverines a 7-3 cushion to play with in the fourth inning. In the fifth, Miranda Kinney singled to center and would later score off an Eagles error with one out. Dalious came up later in the inning and tripled to left to score Julianna Ceron. St. Elizabeth couldn't stop the bleeding as Gabriella Monzo lined a double to score Dalious. Brooke Retkowski would cap off the big inning with an RBI double of her own.

Starting pitcher Jessica Anderson acquired her second win of the season with a stellar outing, giving up just two runs on three hits while fanning six Eagles. Abbey Mayse pitched the last inning of the game with just one run allowed on one hit.

The Softball team will engage in an early rematch tomorrow at Field One against St. Elizabeth at 9:30 a.m.
