Riptide Wins Nightcap 4-1

The New England Riptide completed the sweep of a double-header tonight with a 4-1 win, as former Olympic star Danielle Henderson debuted with the Riptide, pitching six masterful innings, striking out eleven while allowing one run on only two hits. Kellie Wilkerson and Sarah Andersen got the key hits for the Riptide, Andersen with a two-run home run in the second, and Wilkerson with a long double in the seventh to drive in two insurance runs. Once again, Leigh Ann Ellis stepped in in the seventh inning with a one-two-three inning to pick up her second save of the night.

The Riptide travels to New York on Wednesday for a four-game series against the New York Juggernaut before the home opener in Lowell on Thursday June 16 against the California Sunbirds.
