Sophomore pitcher Yvette Alvarez took the loss in game one, and now stands at 7-5 on the year.
Sophomore Shawma Comeaux pushed across two Aztecs with a third inning double, but it wasn’t enough.
Freshman hurler Stephanie Vejar was saddled with the loss in game two, as her season mark fell to 7-2.
Alvarez was 2 for 2 with a double and an RBI. Sophomore catcher Alejandra Ortiz had a pair of RBIs, and sophomore Cynthia Pelayo went 2 for 4 with two doubles.
The Aztecs had a great day against last year’s NJCAA Division II national champions on Feb. 16.
Alvarez pitched the first game and only gave up one run with four strikeouts and one walk, as the Aztecs defeated Phoenix College 4-1 in the first game of the twinbill.
Alvarez stands at 5-4 on the campaign.
Pima got on the board after sophomore Ortiz hit an RBI to drive in Pelayo. Pelayo finished 2 for 3 with two RBIs in the game.
Sophomore Aubre Carpenter had an RBI single in the fifth inning to give the Aztecs a 4-0 lead. Phoenix got their run from a solo homer, but the Aztecs didn’t let them start a larger rally.
In the second game, PCC’s sophomores stepped up and showed their opponents what they’re made of.
Noelle Medina, Gemma Contreras, Pelayo and Alvarez all had great games. Alvarez entered the game to pitch in the fifth inning, facing seven batters. She allowed no hits to earn the save.
Vejar notched the win on the mound.
The Aztecs are doing a great job of working as a team in every game to pull out the wins.
It seems like they are ready to take on the rest of the season with no hesitation.
Pima split a double-dip with South Mountain Community College on Feb. 12. PCC lost the first game 5-4, before pounding South Mountain 19-3 in the second contest.
Starring at the plate were Alvarez, Pelayo, Carpenter, Comeaux and freshman Stephanie Ramirez.
Vejar picked up the victory on the mound in game two, while Alvarez absorbed the loss in the first contest.
After dropping a pair against Glendale Community College on Feb. 9, the recent wins have shown that the women have what it takes to bounce back and be the best they can.
Although the Aztecs lost their games against Glendale, they still didn’t go down easily, losing 5-4 and 7-5.
