The Ventura College softball team was hitting on all cylinders Tuesday afternoon in their 15-1 5-inning defeat of host Oxnard College. The Pirates scored five runs in the first inning, one in the second, then posted nine in the third for the mercy-rule victory. Kayla Garcia led the way offensively with a pair of hits and three runs batted in while Cassidy Craig had two hits and two RBI. Adriana Clemons also knocked out a pair of base hits for VC ( 19-16, 11-3).
Jessica Mendoza did work in the pitcher's circle, allowing just one run to the Condors in picking up the victory.
The Pirates return home on Thursday April 18 for a key match-up with Moorpark College. First pitch is scheduled for 2:30 at the VC Softball Complex.
