Newton, Mass.- The Lasers made it four wins in a row Tuesday on Taylor Field with a doubleheader victory over Simmons College. The two GNAC wins pushes the Lasers slate to 13-3, holding steady at second place in the current standings.
Lasell began the day with an unearned run scored by Heather Rose (West Roxbury, Mass.) in the top of the fourth inning. Rose struck again in the sixth slamming a triple and reaching on an RBI single by Ashley Laramie (Lynn, Mass.).
The Lasers finished the seventh inning with another run to win the game 3-0. Michelle Torres (Waltham, Mass.) got to base on a fielder's choice before stealing second. Torres then shot to home as Rose singled to score the final run.
Lasell's Jackie Loseff (Point Pleasant, NJ) took the win in seven innings on the mound, striking out nine Sharks along the way.
In game two, Loseff pitched six more innings, striking out four, allowing five hits and one run.
The Lasers got on top of the Sharks early to take a quick 3-1 edge in the first. Torres reached home on a passed ball to get Lasell on the board. Rose then came around on a Laramie RBI and Marissa McHugh (Plymouth, Mass.) brough Jackie Saluti (Braintree, Mass.) around the bags for the third run.
Simmons got on board in the bottom of the first with one unearned run, and scored again in the third, scoring a homerun, but the Lasers retained their lead.
In the fifth, Saluti furthered Lasell's advantage with a sacrifice fly to left field sending Torres home. The sixth inning sealed the Lasers second victory of the day as Kerrie Starkey (Keene, NH) and McHugh each added a run.
The Lasers are back in GNAC action for the third day in a row at Suffolk University on Wednesday, April 15th for a 3:00 and 5:00 conference doubleheader.
