Ward hits home run in equaller

6 July 2006

The Australian Open Women’s softball team, Aussie Spirit, have once again proved strong in attack, defeating Japan Denso Club 9-0 on Day 4 of the 2006 Canada Cup in Vancouver.

The Aussies made an impact early in the game with top order bats Simmone Morrow, Sandra Allen and Stacey Porter scoring in the top of the inning.

In her record equaller, co-captain Natalie Ward hit a two-run home run, bringing home Porter for her second, in the top of the fourth.

With other scores from Morrow and Allen, Australia won with the run-ahead rule.

With co-captain and three-time Olympian Tanya Harding on the mound, Japan Denso Club were unable to score with seven strike outs.

Australia has won five from five.

Australia’s Natalie Ward, from New South Wales, will tomorrow become Australia’s most capped player when they take on American Pastime on Day 5.
