The Mt. Hood CC softball team remained in first place in the South Region with a doubleheader sweep against SW Oregon on Saturday, using a pair of home runs to come out on top 6-3 in a Game 2 that featured three lead changes.
After falling behind 3-2 in the fifth inning, the Saints bounced back with three straight singles in its turn with the bats, pulling even when Rachel Rutledge sent a hit to center field.
The Lakers were one out away from keeping the score deadlocked when Mt. Hoods Madisen Baldwin rocked a three-run homer over the right-field fence.
Mt. Hood (29-8) hosts second-place Lower Columbia in a 3 p.m. doubleheader today and travels to Clark College for a 3 p.m. set Friday.
