Alexander’s historic performance leads JMU to win over Delaware in CAA Tournament
HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) - Odicci Alexander’s record-setting performance led the James Madison softball team to a victory over Delaware in the CAA Tournament Wednesday evening.
Alexander fired a complete-game no-hitter and struck out a CAA Tournament-record 16 batters in a 5-0 win for top-seeded JMU. Alexander issued just one walk in the game. She has not allowed an earned run in any of her last seven appearances for the Dukes. Alexander improved to 11-0 overall and lowered her season ERA to 0.66 following Wednesday’s win over the Blue Hens.
Kate Gordon blasted two home runs for the Dukes. She led off the bottom of the first with a solo shot to right field before launching a solo home run to left in the bottom of the fifth inning. Sara Jubas went yard following Gordon’s second longball to give JMU back-to-back home runs before Lynsey Meeks delivered a two-RBI single as part of a four-run fifth inning to extend the Dukes’ lead to 5-0.
James Madison improves to 32-1 overall and extends its winning streak to 22 games. JMU will play No. 2 seed Drexel Thursday at 11 a.m. in the semifinals of the CAA Tournament at Veterans Memorial Park.
