Bats Explode As Lady Owls Top WKU In Games 1 & 2 of SBC Series

The FAU softball team swept a doubleheader on the strength of six homeruns against Western Kentucky on Wednesday night.

Blair Bodenmiller, Becky Brandies and Kerri Croney all hit homeruns in FAUís 4-2 win of game one.

Bodenmillerís homer was a solo shot that put the Lady Owls ahead 1-0 in the second inning.

The Hilltoppers scored two runs in the bottom of the fourth and held the lead until the top of the seventh, but Brandiesí clutch homer with Christine Houghtaling on first gave FAU the deciding lead. Kerri Croney immediately followed with her first homerun of the season to stretch the lead to 4-2.

The Toppers would not answer.

Rose Gressley went the distance in game one, allowing just four hits for her third win in a row.

In game two, the Lady Owls were trailing 5-2 into the fourth inning when the bats exploded for eight runs off of homeruns by Bodenmiller and Ashlyn Parmerter, while Amber Barton added a three-run triple.

Carrie Ann Potter went five innings for the win.

FAU will seek a complete sweep on Thursday night at 6:00PM EST.
