The Emory softball team came through with a dramatic rally in the second game of a doubleheader against DePauw Thursday afternoon, allowing the Eagles to post a sweep over the Tigers. Trailing by a 6-0 count heading into its final at bat, Emory scored seven runs to escape with a victory in the nightcap. In the opener, the Eagles posted a five-inning, 9-1 triumph. Emory now stands 19-9 on the season while DePauw slips to 3-13.
GAME 2 – EMORY 7, DEPAUW 6
** Emory takes advantage of three DePauw in errors in the bottom of the seventh, crossing the plate seven times to come away with the win.
**Sophomore Cassie Baca's sacrifice fly with one out in the seventh, plates Sarah Flanders with the game-winning score. Earlier in the inning, Baca doubled in Ashley Powers with the team's first run of the contest.
** Baca collects two of the team's 10 hits, the sixth time in the past seven games it has finished with double figures in that category.
** Emory had recorded just five hits through the first six innings before collecting five in the decisive seventh inning.
** Senior pitcher Brittany File pocketed the win in relief, her eighth in 12 decisions, hurling 3 1/3 scoreless and hitless innings, striking out two.
** Sophomore Sam Vincent records one hit in four plate appearances, extending her hitting streak to 11 games.
GAME 1 – EMORY 9, DePAUW 1 (5 inn.)
** Freshman Jessie Michael, junior Janelle Turnquest and Sam Vincent all hit safely twice as part of the Eagles' 10-hit attack.
** Turnquest finishes with three RBIs, all of which came on a three-run double in the bottom of the third that staked the Eagles to a 4-0 lead. It was Turnquest's third multi-RBI effort of the season.
**After crossing the plate two more times in the fourth, Emory closes the game out with a three-run fifth. After a DePauw fielding miscue allowed Amy Wray to score, freshman Kinsey Glasgow delivers a two-run single with two out that scores Vincent and Turnquest.
** Sophomore Toko Miller picks up the win in the circle, her fourth of the year against three setbacks, going all five innings and surrendering four hits while striking out one.
