Home runs power Saints softball to a sweep

Kali VanCleave completes a Game 2 comeback with a three-run double


by: THE OUTLOOK: DAVID BALL - Saints pitcher Anne-Marie Guischler winds up during a complete-game effort in Game 1 Saturday. She finished with 11 strikeouts. The Mt. Hood CC softball team kept its season rolling along Saturday with a doubleheader sweep over rival Clackamas.

The Saints opened with a 4-1 win, taking an early lead when Teauna Hughes sent a two-run shot off the scoreboard in center field. She drew intentional walks both times she stepped into the batter’s box later in the game.

The Cougars loaded the bases in the seventh inning, but a ground ball to Kali VanCleave at second base ended the game.

The Saints fell behind 4-1 in the second game before exploding for six runs in the sixth inning to complete the sweep with a 7-4 win.

McCarthy tied the score with a three-run homer, while Van Cleave added the winning punch with a three-run double.

Mt. Hood (22-3) retains its spot atop the South Region standings, going into Tuesday’s home doubleheader against Lower Columbia (15-8).
