Carlos Silva/ THE GATEPOST

Framingham traveled to Mass. Maritime April 15 for a doubleheader.

Led by Kirsten Dick, the Rams were able to win both games by outscoring Mass. Maritime 26-1.

The Rams did most of their scoring, during the first inning of the first game when they drove in six runs to start off.

The RBIs came from singles by Mycala Moody, Farrah Adams, Kaylea Sherman, Lauren Salisbury, and a pair of doubles from Dick.

Mass. Maritime was not able to handle the quick FSU start and was only able to muster up two hits during the entirety of the game.

Kelsi Gunarathne finished the game with an impressive 10 strikeouts to earn the 8-0 victory. 

The second game of the doubleheader featured another dominant performance by the Rams.

Dick really shined in the game, going 3-for-4 on the day, with two HRs, and three RBIs. She also led the team with 5 RBI’s in total during both games. 

Dick’s home runs brought FSU to a total of nine on the season, with three coming in MASCAC play. 

The Rams struck again quickly in this game, going up 8-0 after just two innings.

In the first inning, Moody doubled to right to bring in Camille Desrochers. Next, Salisbury singled to center field, allowing Moody to score.

In the second inning, Dick stepped up to the plate and homered straight to center field on the first pitch of the at bat. Salisbury then hit a pop up to center field, which was dropped, allowing Moody to score.

Dick hit a two-run home run to left field in the fourth inning to put the Rams up 12-0. 

They never looked back as the offense breezed through Mass. Maritime’s pitching throughout the rest of the game.

Mass. Maritime scored one run in the bottom of the fifth inning, taking the goose egg off the scoreboard and making the game 18-1. 

With these wins, the Rams improved to 11-0 in the MASCAC and 17-11 in the season overall.
