The Taylor softball team rolled past Tennessee Temple, 11-0 and 10-1 on Friday in Chattanooga, pushing its current win streak to eight for the program's longest streak in over a decade.
Taylor entered the doubleheader boasting the NAIA's No. 3-rated offense with 8.6 runs per outing and improved on that average by outscoring the Crusaders, 21-1, in Friday's sweep. TU has scored at least eight runs in nine-of-12 games to open the 2014 campaign, while outscoring the opposition by a 116-18 clip.
The Trojans wasted little time taking control at Tennessee Temple (7-11), jumping to a 4-0 lead after three innings, before tacking on two in the fifth and five in the seventh to secure the 11-0 win.
Hannah Robbins (6-0) won for the sixth time in as many outings to open her collegiate career, striking out eight batters and allowing only two hits in the complete game shutout.
The TU bats provided plenty of support, rapping out 15 hits in the lopsided game.
Taylor continued to dominate the action in the nightcap, outhitting the hosts by a 12-4 margin in the 10-1 victory.
