HARRISONBURG, Va. – James Madison hit four home runs as the Dukes posted a 13-1 victory in five innings over the University of Delaware softball team Sunday afternoon at Veterans Memorial Park.

Morgan Tolle put JMU (27-8, 8-1 CAA) on top early with a leadoff homer in the bottom of the first, while Kierstin Roadcap added an RBI single in the frame to make it a 2-0 game. The Dukes pushed across an unearned run in the third, before Roadcap delivered another run-scoring single in the fourth to extend the margin to four.

Delaware (8-25, 2-7 CAA) scored its lone run of the day in the top of the fifth inning when freshman catcher Chayanna Gallardo clubbed a solo home run to leftcenter, her first career longball.

However Natalie Cutright, Roadcap and Odicci Alexander each went deep in JMU’s nine-run bottom of the fourth that put the game away.
