ROSEMONT, Ill. — Team Zerkle became the first squad to earn at least one win while playing an Athletes Unlimited AUX Softball doubleheader this season in the first game of Thursday’s twinbill. However, Team Mulipola prevented a clean sweep of the two games after rallying to claim a 7-4 victory at Parkway Bank Sports Complex.

The win allowed Team Mulipola to even its record at 2-2, while Team Zerkle saw its three-game win streak halted after splitting two games on Thursday.

Designated player Jordan Roberts sparked the comeback victory with a 2-for-4 performance, including a bases-clearing single in Team Mulipola’s final trip to the plate. She earned MVP 1 distinction for her efforts and led all players with 160 leaderboard points.

Corner infielder Tori Vidales followed as the MVP 2 selection after driving in four runs with a 1-for-4 effort, including a two-run single in the first inning. Outfielder Jazmyn Jackson completed the clean sweep for Team Mulipola with three hits and two runs scored.

Peyton St. George (1-1) earned the win in the circle after throwing 1.1 scoreless innings of relief with a strikeout.

Corner infielder Jessi Warren was the lone Team Zerkle player with a multi-hit game after going 2-for-4 with a run batted in. Pitcher Carrie Eberle (1-1), who earned the save in Team Zerkle’s win over Team Garcia earlier on Thursday, took the loss after conceding four runs on four hits over 2.0 innings.


After falling behind by a 4-2 margin in the first four innings, Team Mulipola ran off five straight runs over the final three stanzas to secure the victory. Vidales narrowed the gap to 4-3 with a fielder’s choice in the fifth inning before a four-run outburst in the final frame, including Roberts’ three-run single, sealed the result.


Leach’s 108 leaderboard points allowed her to vault into the top spot in the league standings heading into the second series of the campaign. The former Tennessee standout will join designated player Nadia Taylor and infielder Andrea Filler in the captain’s chairs.
