Coming off a 1-2 outing at the Los Angeles Valley tournament last weekend, the Imperial Valley College softball team looked to get back to .500 in its home opener against College of the Desert on Wednesday.
The Arab bats, though, didn't amass much offense as they lost 10-2 in the sixth inning when the game was called because of the eight-run rule.
The Arabs struck out eight times and only recorded four hits against COD pitcher Vanessa Rodriguez.
"We just weren't hitting the ball at all today," IVC coach Jill Lerno said. "And you're not going to win too many games if you can't get the bat on the ball.
"You can't win if you only end up getting four hits."
What hurt even more was that those four hits came from only two players — Jenny Briseño and Olga Noris. Both were 2-for-3, with Noris smacking a triple and getting an RBI.
