(MARYVILLE, Mo.) Stephanie Marks hit her second walk off home run in two days to follow up a mercy ruled opening contest as Northwest softball swept Missouri Southern by finals of 10-0 and 3-0 on Saturday.

The Bearcats' first-outing onslaught began in the first inning Chantel Adams and Kirsten Uthe drove in runs to establish a 2-0 lead.

Maysville graduate Torri Blythe picked things up in the second by beating out an infield single to score Taszia Roseberry. Northwest plated another two runs before the end of the frame.

Abbie Vitosh (5-7) surrendered just two hits over five innings while striking out four. Adams led all batters by driving in four runs. 

Missouri Southern (10-22, 2-6) hurler Kinnison Haley tamed the Bearcat bats in the second game, keeping things scoreless for the first 7 1/3 innings. She struck out nine batters and walked five before Marks stepped up in the eighth. 

With Blythe and Cassidy Lee on the bags, the junior launched the game-winning homer to right center, handing Northwest (14-16, 7-7) their fourth straight victory.

Sarah Baldwin (7-6) earned the one-hit win as she struck out eight and surrendered no walks.
