GRANTS PASS 10-10, SOUTH EUGENE 0-0 — At Eugene, Grants Pass pitchers Morgan Barnes and Chelsea Chamberlain were perfect against South Eugene.

The Cavers' one-two punch, which has combined for all 18 of the team's wins, tossed back-to-back perfect games in a Southwest Conference sweep over the Axemen.

Barnes, a sophomore right-hander, struck out 13 in six innings to run her pitching record to 10-2.

Chamberlain had a solo home run in the sixth inning and Karleigh Prestianni added two doubles and two RBIs in a contest that only went six innings because of the 10-run mercy rule.

Glover also went 2-for-3 for Grants Pass (18-2, 8-1 SWC).

Chamberlain punched out 10 of the 15 batters she faced. She improved her record to 8-0.
