March 15, 2017
The Rio Hondo College softball team has gone through a tough five consecutive losses, most recently falling out against San Diego City College Mar. 10 dropping their overall record to 6-12 overall and 0-2 in conference as the team continues to try to snap out of their losing streak.
During Rio Hondo’s losing stretch, the team has only managed to score a total of six runs while taking in thirty-five.
The Lady Roadrunners suffered an 8-0 shut out the day before against Pasadena City College, as the Lancers attacked pitcher Brenae Martinez by getting a whopping four runs early on in the bottom of the first inning to start the game off fiercely for Pasadena City.
Off to an excellent start, Pasadena City College would extend on their lead by getting another run in the second inning followed by three more runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to close out the game with the mercy-rule.
Rio Hondo pitcher, Martinez, allowed a total of ten hits on the evening and only struck out one opponent over the course of 4 ⅔ innings.
While the Lady Roadrunners were unable to get on the scoreboard against Pasadena City College, Tiana Rodriguez, Alicia Olivas and Marissa Macias managed to get singles for Rio Hondo but those were the only three hits the team got on the evening.
After their shutout, the Lady Roadrunners returned to action hosting San Diego City College Mar. 10, but unfortunately were still unable to shake their losing streak which has now extended to five games, losing 5-2 against the Knights.
Rio Hondo College will next look to host Mt. San Antonio College Mar. 14 for a South Coast Conference matchup followed by another home game against El Camino College Mar. 16.
