Taylor Sweeps Maple Leafs on Road

GOSHEN, Ind. – Taylor reigned victorious on the road against league foe, Goshen (12-20, 6-10 CL) on Saturday, sweeping the Maple Leafs, 2-0 and 10-1 (5).

Before starting the originally scheduled double-header the teams had to complete game two from March 20 that was rained out due to inclement weather. Taylor won in five innings, 10-0.

Pitching was the key to success for the Purple and Gold in game one. Jessica Doctor (8-4) put in a full game’s work for the Trojans. Doctor struck out three batters and gave up zero runs on four hits.

Though Taylor’s offense was slow, the Trojans scored the game-winning run in the bottom of the sixth when pinch runner, Olivia Hostetler ran home after Hannah Castor singled to second.

Hostetler would pinch run again for the Trojans in the top of the seventh. This time, she would score the insurance run when Taylor Wilson doubled down the left field line.

With the game-winning run at home plate, the Maple Leafs were unsuccessful in bringing in a run which secured the TU win.

The Trojans are no stranger to mercy-ruling their opponents and for the eighth time this season, the Purple and Gold won via mercy-rule, this time 10-1 in game two.

After allowing Goshen to score its only run in the bottom of the first, the Trojans scored 10-consecutive runs to complete the season sweep of the Maple Leafs.

Maddi Evans and Courtney Moriarty both hit a three run home run and Erin Cozad brought in two runs with her dinger.

Lauren Kanai (8-1) pitched the first four innings and Evans closed the game out. In each inning, the Trojans never saw more than four Maple Leaf batters come to the plate. Kanai won her eighth game of the season in the pitcher’s circle for TU.

The pitching duo combined for four strikeouts and allowed one run on three hits.

Taylor (22-6, 14-2 CL) will travel to Indianapolis to take on the No. 5 Marian Knights (30-0, 18-0 CL) on April 8, before returning to Gudakunst Field on April 9 to host the No. 11 Indiana Wesleyan Wildcats (29-9, 14-4 CL).
