FREDERICK, Md. – McDaniel got 14 strikeouts from its pitchers to help in a doubleheader sweep of Hood in non-conference softball action on Thursday.

The Green Terror (22-10) held off a seventh-inning rally from the Blazers (8-31) in game one for a 3-2 victory before claiming the sweep with a 5-1 win in the nightcap.

Amy Baumgardner (Hanover, Pa./South Western) finished the twinbill with four hits, three runs scored and two RBIs for McDaniel.

Erinne Warrenfeltz (Smithsburg, Md./Middletown) pitched the opener with six strikeouts to improve to 4-2 while Stacey Armacost (Glenville, Pa./South Western) went the distance in game two, fanning eight for her second win of the year.

Amy Hagerdon and Emalie Stroup led Hood with two hits apiece.

Baumgardner led off game one with a bunt single before Sam Stitely (Westminster, Md./North Carroll) singled through the left side to put runners at first and second.

A groundout moved both runners up a base before Warrenfeltz lifted a ball to center field for a sacrifice fly that allowed Baumgardner to score. An errant throw also allowed Stitely to come home for a 2-0 lead.

A Megan Moore (Bridgeton, N.J./Cumberland Regional) single, stolen base and throwing error put the leadoff hitter at third base in the third inning. A Baumgardner single plated Moore for a 3-0 advantage.

With one out in the seventh, Katie Jenkins singled to left before Kelly Gafner poked a two-out single through the left side. A Jennifer Rutherford double scored Jenkins before Jackie Yurchak followed with a single of her own to plate Rutherford but Yurchak was thrown out trying to stretch the hit into a double to end the game.

In the nightcap, Laura Mertz (Gillette, N.J./Watchung Hills) led off the third inning with a single before Becky Brehm (Hanover, Pa./New Oxford) was hit by a pitch.

A Baumgardner single scored Mertz before Lauren Fusco (Laurel, Md./St. Vincent Pallotti) knocked in Brehm and Jordan Beans (Hanover, Pa./Hanover) singled to score Baumgardner for a 3-0 advantage.

Baumgardner led off the fifth inning with a triple before scoring on a Fusco RBI groundout.

With two outs, Warrenfeltz jacked her third home run of the season for a 5-0 lead.

Hagerdon roped a one-out double in the bottom of the sixth before taking third on a sacrifice and scoring on a wild pitch to break up the shutout.

Warrenfeltz finished with three hits, including two in game two, while Mertz had a pair of knocks in the nightcap. Moore had two hits in game one.

The Green Terror returns to action at home against Washington (Md.) on Saturday. The first game begins at 1 p.m.
