The Pima Community College softball team (8-2, 5-1 in conference) had very different games against Mesa Community College on Tuesday but the Aztecs were able to come away with the victories. Gemma Contreras (Salpointe Catholic HS) had the big bat for Pima with five hits in two games.

The first was tied at 0-0 until the 6th inning when the Aztecs scored three runs and went on to win 3-0. Yvette Alvarez (Sahuarita HS) pitched her first shutout of the year and improved to 4-2 on the year. She gave up three hits with nine strikeouts and one walk. After back-to-back singles by Aubre Carpenter (Sabino HS) and Contreras; followed by a walk to Cynthia Pelayo (Vision HS), Alejandra Ortiz (Tucson Magnet HS) hit a 3-run RBI double to centerfield that cleared the bases and gave the Aztecs the lead for good. Contreras finished the game going 2 for 3 with a run scored.

The offense took over in the second game as the Aztecs won 12-3 in five innings. Pima trailed 2-0 after the top of the 1st inning but responded quickly. The Aztecs scored four runs in the inning as Alvarez hit a 3-run homer to give the Aztecs a 4-2 lead. In the 2nd inning, the Aztecs had three straight RBI doubles by Pelayo, Ortiz and Alvarez and Shawna Comeaux (Sabino HS) followed that up with an RBI single. Pima scored six runs in the inning. Alvarez went 3 for 3 with six RBIs while Contreras also finished 3 for 3 with three runs scored. Pelayo was 2 for 4 with three runs scored and two RBIs.

Pima will play its fourth straight home doubleheader on Saturday when it hosts Glendale Community College. The first game starts at noon.
