The Auburn Montgomery Warhawks completed a three-game Gulf South Conference Series sweep of the Lee softball with a pair of victories on Saturday afternoon from the AUM Softball Complex.
 
The Warhawks (7-0, 3-0) scored 10 runs on just four hits in winning the opener 10-2 in five innings. AUM came back with a 5-0 blanking of the Lady Flames (5-5, 3-3)  in the nightcap to complete the three-game sweep.

"We beat ourselves today," lamented Lee Head Coach Emily Russell.
"Too many unforced errors and runners left on base. We have to get better this week and tighten things up at practice because we have two nationally ranked teams coming to town this week."

The Lady Flames will have their work cut out for them as they host No. 5 Young Harris on Wednesday at 2 and 4:30 p.m. and then welcome No. 2 North Georgia to Butler Field on Saturday at 1 and 3:30 p.m.
 
GAME 1 – LEE 2 AUM 10

The Lady Flames outhit the Warhawks, 7-4 but left eight runners on base and surrendered five walks and hit three batters in losing 10-2 in five innings in game one.

Mallory Cobb started things off quickly with a two-run double in the first inning for the Warhawks. Lee would answer on a solo home run from freshman Laney Harris in the top of the second.

From there however it was eight straight runs for the home team. The Warhawks scored five in the second and three in the third. Jaycee Walker delivered a two-run double in the second frame.

Taylor De Adder (2-1) suffered her first loss of the year in the circle as she gave up 10 runs, nine earned over three innings. De Adder walked five and hit three batters. Gracie Leslie worked a scoreless inning of relief striking out one.

Cydney Sizemore (2-0) earned the victory for the Warhawks allowing two runs on seven hits. She walked three and struck out a pair in five innings.

GAME 2 – LEE 0 AUM 5

Barnes (2-0) dazzled in the circle for the Warhawks in the nightcap as she allowed just three singles and struck out nine to give AUM a 5-0 shutout win over the Lady Flames.

Mallory Orchard (1-1) started for Lee and allowed five runs on eight hits over 4.1 innings. She walked three and gave up eight hits. Once again it was Leslie throwing effectively in relief as she tossed 1.2 scoreless innings. Leslie allowed just one hit in 3.2 innings of relief this weekend.

Allie Miller got the scoring started for the Warhawks scoring on a passed ball in the bottom of the first. Walker followed with her second double of the day to make it 2-0 in the third. Kathryn Fallen made it back to back run-scoring doubles to extend the margin to three. AUM would wrap up the scoring with two more runs in the fourth inning on a Hannah Dailey single up the middle and a bases loaded walk by Walker to give her four RBI on the day.

Lee managed just three on-base knocks against Barnes. Lily Hatcher, Kylie Bohl and Harris accounted for the offense.
