YUMA, Ariz. –Koryne Coddington’s pair of victories and Sabrina Garcia’s multi-homer day highlighted the Arizona Western College Lady Matadors complete team attack that resulted in a sweep of the GateWay Geckos Saturday afternoon on Charlie Dine Field.
Coddington was her typical dominant self in game one and received enough support in a seven inning complete game victory as the Matadors won 7-0.
Sabrina Garcia’s deep line drive allowed her to break out her speed as she raced around the bases for a solo-homer, inside the park.
The Lady Matadors used five doubles, two from Andrea Cline to prevail in the first game.
Coddington struck out ten while allowing just one hit despite walking four to reach the 20 win milestone this season.
The offense opened up even more in game two, tallying fourteen hits in a 19-2 victory over the Geckos.
Sabrina Garcia’s 6 RBI, highlighted by a homer and double were backed by four RBI from Chloe Garcia as the Matadors pulled away increasingly each inning.
The Mats scored a run in the first, before GateWay took a brief 2-1 lead in the top of the second.
The Lady Matadors rallied for four runs in the bottom of the second, five in the third, and opened up with nine more runs in the fourth to seal the win.
Coddington, making her second start of the day, kept it rolling while allowing five hits to the Geckos. But four strikeouts were enough to allow the Lady Matador offense to rally and support her for her nation-leading 21st win of the season.
Arizona Western is now 34-4 on the season and 25-3 in the ACCAC.
The Lady Matadors return home to Charlie Dine Field on Tuesday hosting Paradise Valley for a pair of games beginning at Noon.
