Softball: Trio of freshmen leads Pasco to sweep

April 2, 2013 

A trio of freshmen helped lead the Pasco softball team to a nonconference sweep of Eisenhower on Tuesday.

Lisa Guzman was 2-for-4 with three RBIs in the 11-10 win in the opener, while pitcher Selena Montelongo was sharp in the nightcap, which the Bulldogs won 12-2 in five innings. Adriana McKinney was 2-for-2 with two RBIs.

“They are really going to be good for Pasco in the future,” Pasco coach Kim Palmer said.

Bibiana Gonzalez drove in the game-winning run in the eighth inning in the opener, as the Bulldogs scored twice in the seventh to tie the game.

Pasco (6-2) stole a combined 21 bases in the two games.

“We are planning on doing that as much as we can during the season,” Palmer said. “We do have speed and we’re going to try and use that as we can.”
