Decatur, Ga.— The Pfeiffer University softball team posted a pair of comfortable wins over Agnes Scott College on Saturday afternoon. The Falcons used an explosive fourth inning in game one to spur on an 18-1 victory before rolling to a 15-2 win in game two.
The Falcons improve to 5-1 on the season while Agnes Scott sees its ledger fall to 2-6.
After a scoreless two innings, Pfeiffer broke through for five runs in the top half of the third. The Falcons put the game away for good with a 10-spot in the fourth. Junior Kari Westerbeek got the scoring started with a solo home run to left field, but Agnes Scott helped the Falcons out with three inning-extending errors—putting nine unearned runs on the board for a 15-0 lead.
Pfeiffer controlled momentum into the series finale, hitting through the lineup in the first inning and tacking six runs on the board.
Agnes Scott answered with a run in the bottom of the first only to see the Falcons cross the plate six more times in the top of the second to put a comfortable cushion between the two sides.
Pfeiffer's Kari Westerbeek was the top offensive player for both sides on the day, going 6-of-8 at the dish with a home run and five RBI.
Pfeiffer will continue their road swing through Georgia on Sunday, March 1 when they take on Wesleyan College in a doubleheader that starts at Noon.
