Mustangs allow 1 hit in sweep

Madelyn Irwin pitched a one-hitter for the Mount Mercy softball team  Friday, and then Jayna Witzany topped that by tossing a no-hitter in  the second game of their doubleheader against Robert Morris.

The Mustangs won the first game, 6-0, as Irwin allowed only one hit in  the seven-inning ballgame. She struck out four batters and did not  walk anyone.

Mount Mercy took the nightcap, 8-0, in six innings on the no-hitter by  Witzany. She struck out seven batters and walked two.

The sweep lifted the Mustangs to 22-18 overall and snapped their  seven-game losing streak. Robert Morris fell to 2-28.

Jolona Shield went 2-for-3 with three RBIs and scored twice in the 6-0  victory in the opener. Tawny Menster was 3-for3 with two RBI. Jess  Heick was 2-for-3 and scored twice. Michelle Mack was also 2-for-3.

Heick went 3-for-4 with three RBI in the 8-0 triumph in Game 2. Payton  Bruner was 2-for-3 with a double, home run and scored twice. Morgan  Braughton was 2-for-3 with two RBIs.
