In 13 games this season, the Pasadena City College softball team has been on the losing side of 5-inning mercy rule (8-run rule after five) contests. The Lancers played five innings again Thursday, but they were the ones doing the damage to an opponent. 

PCC compiled 14 hits in a 15-0 win at El Camino College-Compton Center. The Lancers are 8-28 overall and 5-13 in the SCC. A new program that had no time to recruit in the offseason, Compton is winless this season at 0-18 (overall and in conference).

Lancer pitching ace Adrianna Stevens retired the first 11 batters in order and finished with a 2-hit shutout. Malina Malvia, Compton's catcher, broke up Stevens' no-hit bid in the fourth on a two-out double. The freshman hurler is 2-2 in SCC games and lowered her conference ERA to 2.44 in 37-plus innings pitched.

PCC scored eight runs in the second inning highlighted by back-to-back triples by catcher Jessica Chavez (pictured) and centerfielder Maycee Murphy. In the long frame, first baseman Danielle Lugo belted a 2-run double while Chavez earned two hits and three RBI as the Lancers sent 14 batters to the plate. Lugo was 3-for-3 with a walk and three RBI for the afternoon.

Second baseman Jessica Hernandez, who came back from a leg injury, added a triple and pinch hitter Siurabe Camerena hit a double. 

Despite the Lancers' woes this season, PCC has a chance to sweep the season series v. El Camino College (Torrance) Tuesday, April 19 in a 2 p.m. home game at Robinson Park. The Lancers swept Compton as all five of their conference victories have come against two teams.
