Northridge, Calif. - Senior Ashlynn Booker was 3-for-3 with a single, a two-run homer and a grand slam, driving in a Long Beach State record seven RBI in a 10-0, five inning win over Cal State Northridge. Booker tied a career high with two home runs in one game.
Long Beach State (36-13, 13-2 Big West) took command early in the finale. Shayna Kimbrough and Darian Tautalafua sandwiched walks around a single from Cya Neal, and then Booker hit her first home run of the day, a grand slam that put the 49ers on top 4-0 after one inning.
The offensive outburst continued in the next inning. Hannah De Gaetano started the second with a solo home run, and after Kimbrough reached on a single and Tautalafua added a second walk to put a pair of runners on. Karli Sandoval then added RBI No. 100 and 101 in her career with a single, and then Booker hit her second home run in her second at-bat, a two-run shot to make the score 9-0.
Booker's RBI single, scoring Neal in the top of the fourth inning advanced the score to 10-0, and also gave the senior her seventh RBI, passing seven other 49ers for the LBSU school record.
Amanda Hansen recorded her fourth straight shutout against Cal State Northridge (29-22, 6-9 Big West), pitching a complete game one-hitter to improve to 18-5 on the year.
Sandoval became the fifth player in Long Beach State history to record 100 RBI in her career.
The Beach finishes off their home schedule next weekend, hosting Cal Poly for three games. The series will begin on Saturday, May 3, before concluding on Senior Day, May 4, when Long Beach State will recognize their seven departing seniors.
