Jenny Jansen and Katelyn Massa hit back-to-back homers as Southern Illinois picked up a 6-1 win over Sacramento State Saturday night at the Puerto Vallarta College Challenge.
With their side leading 3-1 in the sixth, Jansen and Massa put the game out of reach for the Salukis. First, Jansen connected on a two-run blast out to left to make it 5-1. Then, Massa went yard in the next at-bat to make it a 6-1 game.
That would be enough run support for Brianna Jones, who went the distance in the circle for Southern Illinois (6-2), striking out 10 batters in the process.
Katie Vretzos drove in the run for Sacramento State (3-5) with a single back up the middle in the sixth.
