SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Santa Clara softball opened its part of the Silicon Valley Classic II with a 4-1 win over Weber State Friday afternoon at home.
Regan Dias (2-2) tossed her first career complete game while allowing just three hits with a pair of walks and three strikeouts to get the win.
Lead off singles in the second by Morgan Modesto and Kelsie Barnard led to a three-run second for the Broncos (3-10). Dias knocked in the first with a singled and a misplay allowed the second to come around. Eleni Spirakis followed with an RBI double to make it 4-0.
Five Broncos collected hits in the game with Dias scoring a pair of runs and adding a walk. The top three spots in the Santa Clara lineup drew four walks and reached base seven times.
A rally for free got the Broncos out to a quick 1-0 lead. The first three batters reached on a hit-by-pitch and a pair of walks before a Jordan Dawkins sacrifice fly made it 1-0 in the home half of the first.
The Wildcats (4-11) got their run in the top of the sixth on a two out single Brooke Moeai that brought home Takesha Saltern.
Tatiana Su'esu'e (3-4) started and picked up a loss in 4 innings. She allowed four runs on five hits with four walks and a strikeout.
The Broncos take on Cal State Fullerton tomorrow at 11:30 a.m.
