SBCC Softball Pounds Pasadena, 11-1

Maggie Jo Jackson went 2-3 with three RBIs on Saturday, leading SBCC to an 11-1 softball win at Pasadena. The nonconference game was shortened to five innings by the eight-run rule.

The first seven Vaqueros reached base to open the game on five hits, a walk and an error. Third baseman Christal Vierra delivered a bases-loaded double that scored the first two in a five-run first inning. Vierra scored three runs as did catcher Monica Salas, who went 2-4 with two RBIs. Madison McNamee was 2-2 with an RBI and improved her pitching record to 2-0, tossing two-hit ball over three innings.

SBCC (3-0) has outscored its first three opponents 27-6.

 “We really worked on batting fundamentals in practice this week and we were focused right from the start,” said coach Paula Congleton. “We played solid defense and our pitchers didn’t allow an earned run or a walk.”

 Salas had an RBI single and McNamee added a run-scoring double in the second to make it 7-0. Jackson delivered a two-out, two-run single in the fourth to score Vierra and Salas.

 Leadoff hitter Alyssa Rae-Jewell was 2-4 for the Vaqueros, who outhit the Lancers 12-3. A trio of Pasadena pitchers gave up 11 runs (7 earned) on 12 hits with five walks.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
