GRANVILLE, Ohio – On the heels of Saturday's record-breaking performance against Hiram, Denison softball improved to 19-7 on the season after taking both games of a doubleheader with Capital University, 10-1, and 8-3, on Sunday afternoon in Granville.

Following a 35-run output against Hiram, the Big Red offense went back to work in game one against the Crusaders, giving starter Sarah Herold a lead to work with from the start. In five innings of action, Herold allowed one run on six hits with four strikeouts while earning her ninth win of the season.

The run support started early for Herold when Amanda Howell laced a two-run home run over the left field wall in the bottom of the first. Denison led 2-0 after the first inning of play.

After the Crusaders recorded their only run of the game in the top of the third, Howell struck once again in the home half of the inning, sending a single down the left field line to score Lauren Secaras and Herold and give Denison a 5-1 advantage entering the fourth.

In the top of the fourth, Herold worked out of a jam, striking out Capital's Chevonne Hayslett to strand runners on first and second. In the bottom of the inning, Emilie Fisher, Herold and Secaras tallied three consecutive RBI doubles while Mckinly Vazquez ripped an RBI single up the middle three batters later to put the Big Red in front 10-1 at the end of the fourth.

Herold threw a hitless top of the fifth as Denison put the run-rule into play and captured the victory in five innings.

Howell totaled a 2-for-3 performance with four RBIs and one run scored, while Fisher and Herold both went 2-for-3 with two runs scored.

Starting much like game one, the Big Red bats shined once again to begin the second game. With runners on first and second and one out, Howell continued her impressive day as she scored Vazquez from second with a single through the left side. Two batters later, Lindsey Clemson connected on an RBI single to put DU in front 2-0 after one inning played.

After Colleen Hoffman relieved the starter, Secaras, in the top of the fourth and garnered three-straight outs, Vazquez extended the Denison lead in the home half of the inning when she recorded her second RBI single of the day, scoring Ricki Asher and giving the Big Red a 4-2 lead.

Sitting on a 5-2 lead in the sixth, Laura Bagan made a splash with a bases-clearing double to right-center, driving in three runs and going ahead 8-2 after six innings.

The Crusaders were able to able to cut the deficit to 8-3 on an RBI single from Pam Vickers in the top of the seventh, but Hoffman recorded the final out to leave the bases loaded and earn her seventh win of the season.

Vazquez led the way for DU in game two, going 2-for-3 with two runs scored and one run batted in. Howell also finished with a 2-for-3 performance and totaled her fifth RBI of the day.  Secaras was 1-for-3 with two runs scored and one RBI in the nightcap. That RBI tied her with Chastine Romanello of Hiram College as the North Coast Athletic Conference's career-leader with 131.

The Big Red will return to the Denison Softball Field on Tuesday, April 24 as they host DePauw University for a doubleheader set to start at 3:30 p.m.
