Fairfield’s game against Albia was like watching a hit parade. The Trojans had 11 hits in the game, including a triple and five doubles.
The Trojans scored one in the first, six in the second, one in the third and four in the fourth.
Since the Blue Demons were unable to make a charge in the fourth inning, that’s when the game ended on account of the mercy rule.
Burnett was the Trojan with the triple as she went 2-3 with three RBIs and a run. Mackenzie McClure doubled twice, drove in a run and scored once.
Repp went 3-3 with two runs, a double and two RBIs. Waugh was 2-3 with a double and two runs.
Karley Williams doubled, batted in a run and scored. Mackenzie Harwood scored twice and Kelsey Roberts scored once.

The pair of wins improves the Trojans’ record to 28-10. Their next game is at home against Burlington at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.
