Eagles Stop Slide; Sweep Cairn
Fair was nearly untouchable early in game one. Eastern's career leader in wins and strikeouts struck out seven of the first nine hitters she faced and did not allow a baserunner until the fourth inning. With two outs in the inning, she walked a batter. She hit the next batter but was able to get out of the jam with a strikeout. The Highlanders had singles in each of their final innings, but the Eastern defense was solid, and the Eastern offense was more than enough.
After not scoring in the first, Eastern plated a pair in the second, a single run in the third, three in the fourth, and two in the sixth to end the game. Katelyn Donald had three hits and three RBI's in the game. Paula Redmon knocked out three hits for her first career multi-hit game. Fair was 2-for-4 with a double.
The Eagles jumped out to a five run first in the second game. Fair drove in three with her 14th career home run for the big blow in the inning. The Eastern senior finishes the day in second place on both the career hits and home runs. She moved into the third spot in career runs batted in.
Eastern scored four more in the second and another five runs in the third. Fair had a two-run shot to left in the inning. Eastern scored the final run of the day in the bottom of the fourth before Redmon came on to pitch for the final three outs.
Fair picks up her 41st and 42nd career wins. She will play her final games as an Eagle this Saturday in Eastern's season-ending doubleheader against Delaware Valley College.
