Emory Takes Pair From Washington University

Emory Takes Pair From Washington University

From Emory University Athletics

The Emory softball team received a pair of sterling pitching performances en route to registering a Friday afternoon doubleheader sweep over Washington University. The Eagles notched back-to-back shutouts against the Bears, capturing the opener by a 5-0 count before posting a 7-0 decision in the finale. Emory stands 21-9 in overall play, 4-2 in the University Athletic Association while WU slips to 11-6 overall and 0-2 in the league.

 Sophomore Toko Miller tosses a complete-game shutout in running her record to 5-3 on the year, allowing five hits and striking out five.
 Miller sits WU down in 1-2-3 fashion in second, sixth and seventh innings, and retires the last seven consecutive Bear batters.
 WU loads the bases with one out in the top of the first, but Miller escapes the jam.
** Sophomores Cassie Baca and Sarah Flanders each collect a pair of hits, with Baca scoring a run.
** Emory accounts for all of the game's scoring with a five-run eruption in the bottom of the third, sending 10 batters to the plate and registering six hits.
** Freshman Jessie Michael and senior Amy Wray deliver run-producing singles to account for the Eagles' first two scores while junior Janelle Turnquestplates a pair of runners with a single.  Freshman Kinsey Glasgow drives in the final run with her single allowing Turnquest to cross the plate.

** Toko Miller and senior Brittany File combine for a five-hit shutout in helping the Eagles to their fourth straight and sixth win in the last seven outings.
** Miller goes the first two frames before giving way to File, who earns the win after going five strong frames, allowing four hits and striking out five.
** File has a 9-4 record in the circle this season and now owns 72 wins during her Emory career, just one shy of tying the No. 1 mark of 73 held by Nicole Kovski (2001-04).
** The Eagles pound out 10 hits with Baca, Taylor Forte and Glasgow picking up a pair of safeties.
** Holding a 2-0 lead after one inning, Emory puts five runs up in its half of the second with Michael coming through with the key blow, a three-run double that scores Baca, Glasgow and sophomore Lana Herrmann.  Amy Wray knocks run home with a double.
** Michael has a team-leading nine multi-RBI games this year and has driven runs in seven of her last eight contests.
