No. 6-ranked Lower Columbia swept a doubleheader from Clark, winning 16-0 and 15-4 at Tam O' Shanter Park in Kelso.

Clark was held to three hits in the first game. LCC broke the game open with a 10-run third inning.

In the second game, Clark's Chelsea Creech and Sarah Nidick each hit two-run home runs that had the game tied at 4-4 after two innings.

But again, it was a 10-run fourth that allowed LCC to limit the game to five innings with the mercy rule.

Clark (2-20, 0-12) is next scheduled to host No. 2-ranked Mt. Hood at 3 p.m. Wednesday.
