EL DORADO HILLS — Seven hits in two innings set the tone Monday for the Oak Ridge High softball team against Monterey Trail in its 12-2, six-inning, mercy rule-shortened nonleague win.

Trojan catcher Caitlyn Olan clubbed a three-run homer over the left-center field fence to end it.

Oak Ridge leadoff hitter Kendall Kelly, second baseman Taylor Railey — both freshmen — joined outfielder Lindsey Zito and Olan to combine for eight hits. The Trojans had 13 hits overall, led by Zito’s 3-for4 afternoon with two triples. Olan (also 3-for-4) had four RBIs while Reagan Jacobs had a double.

“I’m happy with that,” Oak Ridge head coach Sam Kloczko said.

After Monterey Trail scored its first run in the top of the first inning, the Trojans’ bats went to work. Zito smacked her first triple to drive in Taylor Railey (single) and Kelly (walk). Zito scored on Olan’s double.

Oak Ridge scored four more times in the bottom of the second inning. Kelly (2-for-2) walked and scored on Zito’s second triple of the game. Zito scored on Olan’s double.

In the bottom of the third frame, Katelyn Castro singled, stole second and scored on a single from Bailey Cook (2-for-3, RBI) to make it 9-1. Oak Ridge (3-0) had chances to score more in the inning, but two runners were picked off.

“I think we just relaxed a bit,” Kloczko said.

The Mustangs scored their final run in the top of the fourth inning. In the bottom of the sixth, Trojan teammates hovered home plate to greet Olan after she hit her dinger over the fence.
