The first time Waxahachie and Mansfield Summit met on the softball field, seven runs were scored — total. Friday night in Mansfield the Lady Indians nearly tripled that offensive output.
Fueled by a 10-run fourth inning, the Lady Indians picked up their fourth-straight District 10-5A win with a 20-8 defeat of the Lady Jaguars.
The victory gave Waxahachie the regular season sweep, as the Lady Indians defeated Summit 6-1 at home March 6. Waxahachie is now 7-1 in District 10-5A and 14-5-1 on the season.
The Lady Indians struck first when Addy Redd walked and later scored on a passed ball in the top of the first inning.
Summit also scored a run in its half of the first inning and the Lady Indians followed by going down in order in the top of the second.
It was the only time Waxahachie sent just three batters to the plate in any of the six innings played Friday.
The Lady Indians added one run in the top of the third inning when Hope David singled home Redd, but it was Summit that led 5-1 after three-full innings.
The Lady Jaguars plated four runs in the bottom half of the third inning on a pair of singles and three Waxahachie errors.
It was at this point in the ballgame that the bottom fell out for Summit.
Waxahachie sent 16 batters to the plate in the top of the fourth inning and scored 10 runs on six hits. Two of those hits were home runs off of the bats of David (3-5, HR, 6 RBI, 2R) and Hannah Rash (2-4, 4 RBI, R, BB).
Talia Salinas then slugged a third Lady Indian dinger in the top of the of the fifth inning — a two-run shot to centerfield — for a 14-5 lead.
Waxahachie recorded six runs on six hits in the top of the sixth inning for a 20-5 advantage and cruised home with the 20-8 win.
Waxahachie returns home Tuesday to face Red Oak. First pitch is at 7 p.m. The Lady Indians won the first matchup 10-5.
