The Carson High softball team scored in every inning of its five-inning win over Reno on Wednesday in the second game of their 5A doubleheader.

Kiele Franco was 4-for-4 with three RBIs and a triple in the 15-5 win, while Jasmine Slater and Rhys Branham were credited with two RBIs apiece.

Varsity call-up Laila Campbell pitched well in the circle, allowing five earned runs over the five innings with a strikeout.

Campbell also recorded three strikeouts in the first game against the Huskies.

Game 1 was a 9-5 loss for Carson as Reno jumped out to a 9-1 lead before the Senators plated four runs in the bottom of the seventh.

Ashleigh Naranjo drove in a pair for Carson, while Zaydee Gitthens and Cali Stagliano each recorded an RBI.

The doubleheader split came a day after a 21-11 loss to Bishop Manogue on the Senators’ home field.

Carson plated three runs in the first inning after Branham, Naranjo and Franco all drove in a run each with consecutive hits.

After giving up 11 runs in the second, Carson rallied with four more runs of its own, but it wasn’t enough to prevent the run rule.
