Ashley McKeown hits two-run shot in bottom of seventh

Sophomore shortstop Ashley McKeown socked a two-run walk-off homerun in the bottom of the seventh Monday to give the Taft College softball team a 5-4 non-conference victory over Gavilan College.
McKeown’s game-winner capped a four-run inning.
Brooklyn Amador set the table for McKeown’s shot with a two-run double, driving home Peyton Buen and Chelsea Eli-Kido after both got base hits and moved up on a groundout.
Amador and McKeown each had two hits.  Kelina Nakai, Jessica Neher and Jill Del Vilar also had hits.
The win evens the Cougar record at 6-6.  Gavilan is 5-5.
The Cougars host Allan Hancock College Thursday in a twin bill at the Al Baldock Cougar Sports Center.  The action begins at noon.
