ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Darton State softball team defeated Abraham Baldwin at home Thursday 7-3, 10-6.

In the first game of the doubleheader, Danielle Turner knocked in her first career grand slam giving the Lady Cavs a 3-run lead.

Directly following her second homer of the game, Savannah Gabriel sent one over the fences as well. The Lady Cavs offense came on in the bottom of that 6th inning, and kept the pressure to complete the home sweep.

"It was just unbelievable," said Turner. "I can't even express the moment. I was just happy to do it for my team. My team needed it. My hitting is starting to get a lot better So I'm just excited I can do that for my teammates."

"This is her second year," said head coach Amber Miles. "And she's always working hard. So it was great to see that for her because she continues to battle at the plate and I know that was a big thing for her."

The Lady Cavs take on Tallahassee  Community College at home on Tuesday.
