McPherson College’s softball team topped Briar Cliff 9-4 this morning in its first game of the McPherson Invitational at Wall Park.
The Bulldogs, now 9-12, hammered out 18 hits as every player in the lineup had at least one. Judith Salazar (3 for 4, 2 RBIs) and Kortney Jones (3 for 4, 3 RBIs) were the leaders, with Jessica Jones, Jasmine Curiel, Jessica Knoeber and Ali Smith all collecting two.
Freshman pitcher Christie Betker continued her outstanding season by pitching a complete game.
The Bulldogs play Langston University at 4:00 today to wrap up play before the bad weather arrives. The tournament was supposed to be today and Saturday but was moved up a day.
