Dordt defeats Dakota Wesleyan 4-1
HOW IT HAPPENED
A three run third inning proved to be enough for the Dordt Defenders as they turned away Dakota Wesleyan in game one of their GPAC doubleheader in Tucson, Arizona on Wednesday afternoon.
The Tigers got a run in the third inning and Dordt answered with three runs in the home half of the inning with Haylee Heims and Jessica Oules singling in a run each and Erin Bredemus walked with the bases loaded for a run.
The Defenders got a run for insurance in the sixth inning with Jessica Flaherty scoring on a Heims double.
The Tigers had chances early in the game but stranded two runners each in the first, second and third innings and had just one run to show for those frames.
Dordt had an 8-4 hits advantage.
Natale Fopma allowed one run on four hits with three walks and struck out one.
Heims and Oules each had two hits with Heims knocking in two runs.
Hailey Heeringa walked three times and Jessica Flaherty scored two runs.
