The El Camino softball team got off to a fast start, scoring four runs in the first inning. Sophomore pitcher Haley Reed pitched three scoreless innings to help the Warriors beat visiting L.A. Harbor College, 11-2, in five innings on Tuesday.

The Warriors’ victory extends their winning streak to 13 games, including five straight in conference.

“Both of my pitchers (also) did really (well) defensively with being able to put the ball on the ground with runners on,” EC coach Jessica Rapoza said. “I thought it was a good overall team win.”

Freshman infielder Karla Calderon hit a two-run inside-the-park home run to give the Warriors an 8-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning.

“I think Karla (Calderon) did a good job by putting the ball on the ground.” Rapoza said.

Calderon went 2-for-3 with two RBIs in the win against L.A. Harbor.
