Softball Splits Doubleheader With #9 Bloomsburg
SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba and ninth-ranked Bloomsburg battled to a split of a softball doubleheader on Tuesday afternoon at Whitley Field. The Huskies rallied for a 5-4 win in the opener, while Catawba took game two 1-0 in eight innings. The Catawba Indians now stand at 24-9, while Bloomsburg is 3-4.
The Huskies out-hit Catawba 10-2 in the nightcap, but could not push across a run. Catawba’s Hillary Hampton (Salisbury, NC) scored the winning run in the eighth after a single by Ryann Baker (Rockwell, NC) and a misplay in left field. Hampton opened the inning pinch-running at second and Baker grounded a 3-0 pitch between third and short.
Rachel Christian (Buckingham, VA) tossed the shutout and worked out of a pair of bases-loaded situations. The Huskies got a pair of two-out singles and a walk in the second, but failed to score, and Jessie Whitesides (Yadkinville, NC) ended the third by throwing out a runner a the plate. Bloomsburg also loaded the bases in the seventh with two more two-out hits, but again were denied a run.
Tara Reed (Willliamsport, PA) took a no-hitter into the fifth for the Huskies. Sarah VanBuskirk (Lutz, FL) broke up the bid with a one-out single to center. Tiff Corliss (Lewisburg, PA) had two hits for Bloomsburg.
Bloomsburg rallied for five runs in the seventh inning to take the opener. Only one of the runs was earned as Catawba made three errors in the frame. The Lady Indians appeared to have the game in hand, but on a pop fly Allie Marshall (Pleasant Garden, NC) and Callie Gordy (Oak Ridge, TN) collided in right field which allowed the final two runs to score.
The Lady Indians had two runners on in the seventh, but Jenn Mehl’s (West Creek, NJ) liner to second was turned into a game-ending double play. Catawba built a 4-0 lead entering the final inning. Marshall knocked in the first run with a single in the third and VanBuskirk doubled home two more with two outs.
Brittany Thornburg (Kings Mountain, NC) connected on a solo homer in the fifth for the 4-0 edge. Gordy led Catawba with three hits. Ashley Lynn (Riverside, PA) earned the win in relief. She allowed two runs (one earned) off five hits in five innings of work. Lindsay Ettinger (Pasadena, MD) took the loss for Catawba, allowing just one earned run with eight strikeouts over her six and a third innings.
