Softball Falls Twice by a Single Run at USC Aiken


AIKEN, SC -- Host USC Aiken remained undefeated with a pair of one-run wins over Catawba in softball action on Saturday afternoon at Satcher Field.  The Pacers won 1-0 then 2-1 in 10 innings to improve to 6-0.  The Catawba Indians fell to 5-3.

Nicole Borden’s one-out single in the second plated the lone run of game one.  Lindsey Jones was hit by a pitch with one out and Kelley King followed with a single.  Borden singled to right center to knock in the run.  India Kornegay threw a two-hitter for USCA and struck out 13.  Catawba stranded five runners, but only got one to second base when Carly Sabat (Warren, OH/Howland HS) stole second with two outs in the third.

Brittany Murray (Asheboro, NC/E. Randolph HS) pitched well for Catawba.  She allowed five hits, walked none and struck out three.  Amanda Terry (Cordova, NC/Richmond Senior HS) and Casey Baucom (Marshville, NC/Piedmont HS) had the two Lady Indian hits.

Kayla Denham singled home Borden with the bases loaded and one out to claim the game two win in the tenth.  The Pacers followed an opening out with four straight singles.  Catawba took a 1-0 lead on Khourtni Hester’s (Waldorf, MD/McDonough HS) lead off home run in the third.  Aiken answered right back with an unearned run in its third.  Denham’s two-out single produced the run.

Kylee Knop allowed six hits and struck out eight in tossing the complete game for USC Aiken.  Denham had three hits.  King picked up two hits in each game for USCA.
