The Lee softball team dominated Cedarville University from start to finish of Friday's doubleheader at Butler Field to extend its winning streak to five games.
The Lady Flames (9-4) outscored the Lady Jackets (0-6), 23-0, with wins of 8-0 in game one and 15-0 in game two.
"We put some really good swings on the ball today and that should continue to give us confidence moving forward," said Lee head coach Emily Russell. "Our pitching never let them get into any kind of rhythm and offensively we stay on the attack all day long.
I was really proud of focus today with a late schedule change. The girls were ready to play."
Lee will face a much stiffer opponent on Wednesday as they travel over to the turf field at North Georgia for a doubleheader. The 11-1 Nighthawks are currently ranked 12th in the nation.
Lulu Vasquez (4-2) did not allow a hit in four innings and earned her fourth win of the season. She struck out four and scattered three walks. Gracie Leslie tossed the final inning to close out the game in the fifth inning.
Brooklynn Frazier put an exclamation point on the 12-hit effort with a two-run homer in the fourth to extend the lead to 8-0. Kayla Louie doubled home a run earlier in the frame and scored two runs. McKinney doubled home a run the first as she launched the ball of the fence.
Kacey Smith (0-2) suffered the loss in the circle for Cedarville allowing all eight runs on 11 hits over 3.2 innings. Liz Breedlove came on in relief to close out the fourth with a strikeout.
Vasquez also made her presence felt going 2 for 2 at the plate before being lifted in the fourth inning for a pinch-runner after feeling some leg discomfort running out an infield single.
The Lady Flames picked off right where they left off with 19 hits, including two home runs and four doubles in a 15-0 route of the Lady Jackets in the nightcap.
Frazier launched her second home run of the day and third of the season, this time an opposite field blast. Madison Besaw capped off a five-run first with a two-run homer to right field.
The Lee offense would not relent with three more runs in the second, another five-spot in the third and a pair of runs in the fourth frame. Fittingly, it was Frazier who singled home the final two runs to complete a 4 for 7 day with six RBI and two runs scored.
Shonna Penney (4-0) remained perfect on the year as she went all five innings allowing just two hits and no walks. The senior struck out seven and faced just three batters over the minimum.
Four different Lady Jackets pitchers went into the circle but none of them were able to cool off the red hot bats of the Lady Flames. Lucia Eroshevich (0-2) was tagged with the loss as she started and allowed five runs on six hits in one-plus innings of work.
