The sixth-ranked Auburn Montgomery softball team saw its 10-game home winning streak to open the season come to a close this afternoon, as the Warhawks were swept in a doubleheader by local rival Faulkner.
The Lady Eagles came away with an 8-4 nine-inning win in Game 1, and defeated AUM 7-3 in the nightcap.
With the losses, the Warhawks fall to 25-4 (5-3 SSAC). Faulkner moves to 19-8-1 (5-5-1 SSAC).
AUM was limited to five hits in Game 1, though three were home runs. Jyssica Pepper and Katie Spain hit back-to-back shots to open up the bottom of the fourth inning, evening the game up at two apiece.
Spain’s home run was her 11th of the season, tying her for the single-season program record with 18 games still remaining in the regular season.
