The Corsairs' Hot Streak Continues
The Santa Monica College (SMC) Corsairs softball team continues their undefeated winning streak with a tense, low-scoring match on Thursday, February 21, while hosting the Allan Hancock College Bulldogs at John Adams Middle School Field.
Corsair starting pitcher Ireland Miessau (#22) shut out the Bulldogs. Miessau pitched through all seven innings, allowing just two hits, striking out seven batters and not allowing any walks.
The Corsairs managed to finally light the scoreboard at the bottom of the third inning. First-baseman Erika Soto (#6) drew a fly ball to center field. The sacrifice fly ball allowed second-baseman Taylor Scott (#37) to run into home-base.
The remainder of the match was a neck and neck battle. Both teams struggled to put any points on the board. The final score was 1-0 in favor of The Corsairs.
SMC had more opportunities to score but were unable to, stranding a total of six players on base. The Bulldogs only managed to strike out four batters and allowed five hits and two walks.
The Corsairs now stand at (4-0). Their first win against the Compton College Tartars ended 6-1. They played two matches against the Oxnard College Condors which were both won 4-2 and 7-4, respectively.
They will be on the road on Tuesday, February 26 to face off against Ventura College. Their next home game will take place on Thursday, February 28 against Cuesta College at 2:30 pm at John Adams Middle School.
