The UNLV softball team continued its dominance of Fall Ball with two more blowout victories, this time against NJCAA top-ranked Salt Lake Community College. 

The Rebels took game one of the Friday doubleheader by a score of 14-0 before powering to a 15-2 nightcap victory.

UNLV has outscored its opponents 81-3 in four games this fall.

Game One

Rebel ace Jenny Bressler ruled from the rubber once again, spinning four perfect innings with four strikeouts for her second victory of the fall. 

Jasmine Martin locked down the final three innings of the opener, allowing no runs and picking up the rare nine-out save.

The bats carried over their momentum from last weeks’ impressive offensive display. UNLV put up a quick six runs in the bottom of the first on the strength of back-to-back home runs from April Visser and Denise Armendariz. It would be more than enough run support for the flawless Rebel pitching.

Visser would launch another moonshot bomb into the parking lot in the third to continue her scorching start at the plate. She led the Rebels with six home runs and 12 RBI after four games.

Game Two

Another fall game, another slugfest for the Rebels. 

UNLV matched its 16 hits from the first game, scoring in all but one of its frames.

Sofia Morales was a perfect three-for-three at the dish, collecting three runs, an RBI and a stolen base while flashing the leather with a diving catch in center field. She totaled five hits and six runs between both contests.

Armendariz provided the power with a pair of home runs and drove in three. She’s up to four round trippers in just 11 plate appearances.

Alanna Thiede scattered six hits across four innings of two-run ball to earn her first victory of the fall. Sabrina Jolin worked a scoreless fifth before Jenna Perez shut the door in the final two frames, punching out five of the six Bruins she faced. 

Up Next

Fall Ball concludes Friday with another double feature when the Rebels host local College of Southern Nevada in Eller Media Stadium at 12 and 2 p.m. All fans are granted free entry to both games.
