Merrimack's win highlighted by Jaclyn Giovannini recording 100th career hit

NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. -- Highlighted by senior infielder Jaclyn Giovannini recording her 100th career hit in a Navy and Gold uniform, Merrimack cruised to a 14-1, five-inning victory against Saint Michael's on Sunday afternoon at the Warrior Softball Diamond.

After sweeping a Saturday doubleheader against the Purple Knights, Merrimack returned to the diamond Sunday eyeing its first series sweep of a Northeast-10 Conference opponent this season and left little doubt that it would do so, as the Warriors exploded for 12 runs over the first two innings to pave the way to victory.

Merrimack's offense enjoyed its finest outing of the season, registering new single-game highs in runs (14), RBI (13), hits (12), and home runs (4), with four different Warriors blasting homers on the afternoon.

Giovannini got things started with a three-run dinger in the bottom of the first before classmate Ashley Perry joined the party with a solo shot of her own. Giovannini would then record her 100th career base hit an inning later on a sharp single to left field to jumpstart the Warriors' eight-run inning.

In the second, sophomore Brittany Razo got on the board with a two-run shot to right field before freshman Mariah Tenney, who led off the inning with her first collegiate base hit, returned to the plate for her second at-bat of the frame and cleared the bases with a grand slam to right center, making it a 12-0 lead for the hosts.

Merrimack would get two more runs in the bottom of the fourth on a two-RBI triple off the bat of junior Stephanie Lapierre, while freshman Haley Currie improved to 7-7 on the year after going five innings with three strikeouts and only four hits allowed.
