Martindale finished a sensational weekend both at the plate and in the pitcher's circle for the ThunderWolves leading CSU-Pueblo in a four-game series sweep over Fort Lewis.
Martindale set a new program and RMAC record by hitting four doubles in game one Saturday versus the Skyhawks. The senior led the Pack by going 7-for-12 at the plate and recorded a whopping six doubles and three runs en route to sweeping the Skyhawks.
She finished with two walks and 13 total bases and captured a 1.083 slugging percentage.
In the circle Martindale went 3-0 in 10.2 innings pitched. She allowed six runs, four earned and struck out eight batters and scattered sixteen hits. She held the Skyhawks to a .314 batting average and posted a 2.62 ERA.
The sweep keeps the ThunderWovles postseason hopes alive entering the final week of the regular season.
