|Arizona Western College||11|

PHOENIX, Ariz---Behind a pair of big innings and dominant pitchers, the #12 Arizona Western Lady Matadors (16-5 overall, 4-0 ACCAC) swept Paradise Valley in an ACCAC double-header Tuesday afternoon.
Matador ace Anahi Grijalva tossed six scoreless innings while scattering five base runners and the Matador offense struck for six runs in the sixth inning of game one to win 11-0 in six innings.
McKenzie Gray also scattered five runners in her five innings, allowing just one run, while the offense backed her with runs in each of the first four innings-including seven in the fourth-to complete the sweep with a 12-1 victory in game two.
Angela Oros belted her 6th homer of the year in game one and Iliana Manzano hit one in each game and finished the day 4-7.
Arizona Western is now 4-0 in ACCAC play and will have Saturday off, originally scheduled for a road-trip to GateWay, due to COVID protocols in the GateWay program. Those games will be rescheduled at a later date.
The next opponents for AWC will be Chandler-Gilbert on Tuesday the 16th at Charlie Dine Field in Yuma.
The games will be livestreamed on the Matador Athletics Facebook Page.
