Keohohou homers twice in Glory win

CHANTILLY, VA – Oli Keohohou tied and later broke the NPF career record for home runs as the Washington Glory defeated the Venezuelan National Team, 8-2 in five innings at the Westfield Softball Complex. The game was shortened due to lightning after the top of the fifth inning.
Keohohou went 2-2 with two home runs, 5 RBIs and a walk to cap off a perfect night at the plate. The former BYU and Long Beach State slugger led off the bottom of the third inning with a solo shot to left center, which tied former Iyhia McMichael, formerly of the Akron Racers, for 27 career home runs and the league record. Already up 4-2 in the fourth, Keohohou put the game out of reach with a two-out grand slam to dead-center field, breaking the all-time career record. With five RBI on the day, Keohohou tied her professional career high for the second time this season, and also tied the Glory team record, which Amber Jackson and Jessica Moore set last year in the Inaugural season.
Washington scored in every inning on the night as a Courtney Bures’ RBI triple off-the-wall in right gave the Glory the 1-0 lead. The three-base knock scored centerfielder LaDonia Hughes who singled earlier in the inning.
A bases loaded walk issued to Bures in the second gave Washington a 2-0 lead as Jessica Moore came into score.
Lisa Ferguson made the start for the Glory, allowing just two earned runs on seven hits over 3.1 innings of work. The former Baylor Bear also fanned three and walked two. Desiree Serrano took over for Ferguson and allowed just one hit over 1.2 innings to earn the win.
Mariangee Bogado took the loss for Venezuela as she allowed three runs over 3.0 innings. Anyibell Ramirez also gave up three runs without recording an out while Marianella Castellanos allowed two runs in one inning.
Keohohou and Bures drove in all eight of the Glory’s runs as Keohohou drove in five while Bures chipped in with three.   Catalina Morris, Hughes and Keohohou all had multi-hit nights, while Bures, Balko, Jackson and Moore all pitched in with one.

Washington and Venezuela meet in the fourth and final game of the series Sunday night at 7:05 at Westfield.
