ATLANTA–The weather in Atlanta was a bit breezy but warm enough for fans to enjoy the outdoors and a doubleheader between Clark Atlanta and Benedict. One game was a nail-biter, the other was an offensive showcase.
Shalonda Woods drove in the winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning for Clark Atlanta. The Lady Panthers picked up a 7-6 win to open the three-game weekend series. Benedict, however, would bounce back very quickly.
The game was tied at five apiece in the top of the fourth inning but after De’Maya Davis scored off a wild pitch there was no turning back. Benedict would tally 18 runs in the game to double up CAU 18-9.
The series will be decided on Sunday afternoon when both teams meet for game three at 2pm on the CAU campus.
