Amber Waracka continues to plow down opponents as the sophomore pitcher picked up two more victories as the University of Hawaii at Hilo swept Notre Dame de Namur University, 4-0 and 3-2, in a Pacific West Conference doubleheader on the UHH softball field.

The Vulcans improved to 16-5 overall and 12-4 in the PacWest while the Argonauts are 4-14 overall and 2-8 in the PacWest.

After starting the season off with at 2-1 record, the reigning PacWest Pitcher of the Week has gone undefeated and improved her record to 9-1 with a 1.36 ERA. She has held opponents to a .196 batting average while striking out 63 over 77.1 innings. She also hasn’t given up many freebies as she has walked just 22 batters, hit one and has yet to uncork a wild pitch.

In the first game, Waracka tossed a complete-game 2-hit shutout with five strikeouts. She came in relief in the second game and pitched 3.2 innings giving up a pair of hits and striking out four.

The Vulcans capitalized on Argonaut errors in the first game with a pair of 2-run, 3-hit, 1-error innings in the first game. Amanda Tellez, Aisha Sueda and Dana Lee paired hits for the Vulcans.

Sueda’s 7th-inning double sent the second game into extra innings where Kanani Numata’s 9th-inning triple set the stage for the Vulcans second game. With Numata ready to score, Jessica Schatz shot to third base was mishandled and scored the game winner.
