East Union sophomore catcher Alejandra Rascon continued her stellar hitting during Friday’s Valley Oak League opener against Lathrop at the Northgate Softball Complex.

Rascon went 2 for 2 with five RBIs and a grand slam as the Lancers cruised past the Spartans in a shortened five-inning contest, 16-0.

“(Rascon) is on fire,” East Union head coach Brian Goulart said. “She’s seeing the ball well.”

East Union junior Cherish Burks was 2 for 3 with three runs and three RBIs and senior Jordan Vinson also went 2 for 3 with two runs and three RBIs. Sophomore Valeria Ramos (2 for 3) scored twice and tallied one RBI for the Lancers (6-0 overall, 1-0 VOL).

EU scored 12 in the bottom of the first and freshman Alexis Erich threw one inning and tossed two strikeouts. Savina Brandi finished the last four and gave up three hits and struck out one.

East Union will visit Kimball (Tracy) on Wednesday before taking on the Buffalos at Manteca High Friday at 4 p.m.

The Buffaloes opened VOL against the Mustangs (3-1, 1-0), who only gave up a run in the top of the fourth. Manteca (3-3, 0-1) tallied four hits and was led by senior Peyton Rose, who went 2 of 3 including a triple.
