LIBERTY, Ind. -- Brooke Reiboldt homered twice and was dominant from the circle Saturday as Union County swept a doubleheader from Cowan, winning 15-0 and 24-6, both in five innings.
Reiboldt struck out 13 in Game 1, while Maria Duckworth had three hits and four RBIs for the Patriots.
Duckworth went 3-for-3 with four RBIs in Game 2, while Tanner Henry was 3-for-5 with four RBIs, Caitlyn Charles was 2-for-2 and Emma Adams was 2-for-2.
“We wanted to get back on track,” said UC coach Scott Gray. “We felt like we kind of gave that New Castle game away with way too many errors. Today, we felt like we got back to kind of what we do.”
