Burlingame grad Natalie Saucedo doubled, tripled and drove in four runs as the College of San Mateo softball team beat host Mission College, 12-2, Tuesday in a Coast Conference North Division game.

The Lady Bulldogs (12-3, 33-4) clinched at least a tie for the division title with three games remaining. CSM travels to second-place De Anza (7-6) with a chance to clinch the outright title.

Hillsdale grad Kaylin Stewart added a pair of hits and drove in three runs as CSM scored nine times in the top of the first inning.

Capuchino grad Michele Pilster added a pair of RBIs, while Mikayla Conlin and El Camino grad Selina Rodriguez each had three hits.

Pilster and Notre Dame-Belmont grad Amelia Shales combined on the five-inning two-hitter.

The Lady Bulldogs have two remaining home games in the regular season: April 18 vs. Ohlone and April 23 vs. CC San Francisco, both with 3 p.m. starts.
