OLEAN, N.Y. - Behind stellar pitching from sophomore Ashley Ventura and junior Madison Clarke, the Saint Joseph's swept a doubleheader at St. Bonaventure on Friday. The Hawks took the opener, 4-1, and won game two, 3-0.
In the opener, Ventura scattered six hits over seven innings and allowed one earned run to improve to 9-8 on the year.
In game two, Clarke was dominant as she allowed just two hits to pick up the win and move to 5-6 on the year.
Kapala would score on an RBI single by Herrera in the fifth to make it 3-0, and that's all Clakre and the SJU defense needed as they allowed just one base runner over the final three innings to preserve the win.
The Hawks and Bonnies cap their three-game series on Saturday with a single game set to start at noon.
