COLUMBIA -- Columbia's bats were on fire Monday as the Cougars posted a doubleheader sweep over American Midwest Conference (AMC) opponent Missouri Baptist University in St. Louis, Missouri. Columbia won 10-1 and 11-1, with both wins coming in just five innings. The victories improve the Cougar record to 17-15 on the season.

Tori Gehlert got the game started off on the right foot for the Cougars as Gehlert singled in the first to lead-off the inning. Gehlert's single sparked an eight run, nine hit inning capped by Gehlert's second at-bat of the inning which was a three-run homer over the left field fence. The Cougars didn't look back after that, scoring two more runs in the second and allowing just a single run in the bottom of the fourth to take the early inning win.

The second game proved to be much like the first with the Cougars getting on top early and staying there. Columbia scored three in the first, three in the second, one in the third and run-ruled the Spartans with a pinch-hit grand slam by Jessica Hardy in the bottom of the fifth.

Jordan Crisp (10-8) collected both victories on the mound today. The senior threw seven innings, allowing three hits and one run while fanning one. Maria Imhoff (0-2) relieved Crisp in the third inning of the first game. The freshman gave up five hits and a run while striking out two.

On the day, Gehlert led the Cougars with four hits in six at-bats, including a homerun, three runs scored and three RBIs. Morgan Bounds had four hits, three runs and four RBIs. Kristin Eiken chipped in four hits and three runs and Meagan Thurman had three hits in four at-bats.

The Cougars return to the field Tuesday when they face Stephens College in a doubleheader beginning at 2 p.m. The games will take place at the American Legion Field in Columbia.
