Franklin College softball squad starts season with wins in Florida




The Franklin College softball team opened the 2014 season Saturday with a pair of victories, downing Clark University (Mass.) 7-5 and Alverno College (Wis.) 6-2 as part of the Gene Cusic Classic in Fort Myers, Fla.

Franklin (2-0) rallied to win both contests. The team trailed Clark (0-2) 5-0 in the fourth inning and that deficit could have been worse. The Grizzlies got out of a bases-loaded jam in the fifth and scored seven unanswered for the win.

In the day’s second contest, Franklin trailed 1-0 before tying the game in the fourth inning. The team had a three-run fifth inning to pull ahead 4-1. After Alverno (1-1) scratched a run across in the top of the sixth inning, Franklin responded with two more runs in the sixth inning.
