WESTMINSTER, Md. – McDaniel used three home runs and pitched a pair of shutouts in a Centennial Conference (CC) doubleheader sweep of Gettysburg on Saturday.

The Green Terror (20-8, 12-2 CC) took the opener 9-0 in five innings before capping the sweep with a 2-0 victory, securing its first CC playoff appearance since 2006. McDaniel needs a split with Washington (Md.) in its conference finale next Saturday to assure itself the top seed and host the conference tournament on May 5-6.

Jordan Beans (Hanover, Pa./Hanover) went 4-for-6 on the day with a two-run home run in game two, providing the only runs of the contest. Caroline Brehm (Hanover, Pa./New Oxford) threw both games, striking out 20 while allowing just four hits and one walk with an efficient 152 pitches.

Abby Ferguson and Katie Lang led the Bullets (18-13, 9-5 CC) with all four hits, recording one apiece in each game.

With one out in the second inning of the opener, Jackie Liebowitz (Bellerose, N.Y./Benjamin N. Cordozo) blooped a single into right field for the game's first hit.

After she was erased on a fielder's choice, Sam Stitely (Westminster, Md./North Carroll) and Beth Ann Fusco (Laurel, Md./St. Vincent Pallotti) each singled to load the bases.

On a 2-1 count, Amy Baumgardner (Hanover, Pa./South Western) laced a shot off the tent beyond the center field fence for her first home run – a grand slam, giving the hosts a 4-0 lead.

A one-out double from Beans and Erinne Warrenfeltz (Smithsburg, Md./Middletown) single put runners at the corners in the third.

After a pop out, Tracy Davis (Christiansburg, Va./Christiansburg) singled home Beans and Stitley drove in Warrenfeltz for a 6-0 lead.

With one out in the fourth, Lauren Fusco (Laurel, Md./St. Vincent Pallotti) slapped a single into left field before a Beans single put runners at first and second.

Warrenfeltz followed, driving a 2-0 pitch over the fence in left-center for a 9-0 lead.

Brehm worked around a leadoff double from Ferguson in the top of the fifth with her eighth and ninth strikeouts and Davis drove backwards to catch a foul ball to end the game early.

The Green Terror carried the momentum into the nightcap. Rachel Sidney (East Meadow, N.Y./East Meadow) led off the bottom of the first with a four-pitch walk before Beans roped a one-out jack over the centerfield fence for the only two runs Brehm would need.

Brehm allowed just two singles, striking out 11.

Lindsey Treanor settled in after the home run, allowing just three hits and five baserunners the rest of the way.

Lauren Fusco, Warrenfeltz, Liebowitz and Stitely all added two hits on the day.

The Green Terror returns to action at Hood on Tuesday. The first game begins at 3 p.m.
