Gunn softball scores two dozen runs on 19 hits in non-league win

Sophomore shortstop Ashley Ng and freshman second baseman Brenna Birnbaum each drove in four runs and the Gunn softball team downed host Lincoln 24-8 in a non-league game Thursday in San Jose.

Winning pitcher Maddie Ta and catcher Lauren Li each drove in three runs for the Titans (4-1), who have scored 71 runs over their past four games, all victories.

Gunn scored three runs in the top of the first inning, all with two outs, and never trailed. Birnbaum and Emma Sachs each singled home a run and Ingrid Lee's misplayed bunt allowed another run to score.

The Titans scored 10 runs in the second, sending 16 batters to the plate. Ta and Li each drove in a pair of runs in the inning.

In the bottom of the seventh, Lincoln responded with seven runs, six of them with two outs. Two walks, a single and a hit batter produced the Lions (0-3) first run. With two outs, Lincoln recorded four consecutive hits, including a pair of doubles, to make it 13-7.
