Savannah Delgado and Cami Hansen both went 3 for 4 to lead the Titans’ 10-run explosion against the visiting Trojans. Delgado had a triple and two singles. She drove in three runs. Hansen drove in two.

Also for Taylor (3-2), Jacquelyn Rhoades was 2 for 3 with a double and two RBI, McKenna Deckard was 2 for 4 with two RBI and Taylor Mosier was 2 for 3.

Taylor pitcher Rachel Hafley fired a two-hitter. She struck out one and walked none.

“We played very sound defense. We had no errors,” Taylor coach April Johnston said. “We came out in the fifth and hit the ball really well. We put seven runs on the board to end the game. Just a good all-around game.”

Eastern 11, Southwood 1, 5 innings

The Comets took control with a seven-run explosion in the first inning and Alyssa Haalck made the lead stand. She pitched a complete game, allowed four hits, struck out seven and walked two.

“We were hoping to give [ace pitcher Abby Oyler] a little rest since we have games against Rochester and Logansport the next two nights. Alyssa did a nice job. They really struggled against her,” Eastern coach Jerry Haines said. “We got the good hitting, the good start and good pitching. It was a good night for us.”

Maddie Vint led the Comets (5-3) at the plate. She cracked a double and a single and drove in four runs. Ally Oyler had a double and two singles and Ashlynn Hochstedler and Rachel Wingate each had a double.
