One-Run Losses Continue to Mount for Softball

ANDERSON, SC -- Catawba was swept in a South Atlantic Conference softball doubleheader, losing a pair of one-run games to host Anderson on Saturday afternoon at Smethers Field.  The Trojans claimed wins of 3-2 and 1-0 to improve to 31-9 overall and 9-5 in the SAC.  The Catawba Indians fall to 22-13 and 7-7.

Anderson scored all its runs in the opener on one swing.  After singles from Abby Child and Rebecca Martin, Laura Jansky connected for a two-out, three-run homer to give the Trojans a 3-0 lead in the fourth.

Carley Tysinger (Lexington, NC/C. Davidson HS) got one of those runs back with a RBI single in the fifth, but the Lady Indians left a pair on.  Holli Chandler (New London, NC/N. Stanly HS) led off the seventh with a home run and Catawba had the tying run at second with no out before a pair of pop ups and a fly out ended the game.

Chandler scored both runs for Catawba, which was limited to three hits.  The Lady Indians did coax six walks, but left nine on base during the contest.  Tysinger (15-6) took the loss as she allowed the three runs off six hits while striking out eight.

Bri Cason had two of the six hits for Anderson.  Katelynn Howser (11-4) pitched six innings to get the win.  She allowed both runs on three hits with three strikeouts.  Augie Pena claimed her first save, retiring all three batters she faced.

Lauren Rudesheim (14-4) tossed a three-hit shutout for Anderson in the nightcap.  She walked none, hit one and struck out eight.  Caroline Turner (Kenly, NC/N. Johnston HS) pitched well in falling to 9-7 for Catawba.  She allowed just the single run off six hits.

Catawba was able to sacrifice leadoff runners to second in both the third and fourth innings, but could not score.  Those were the best scoring chances for the Lady Indians.  Jansky again delivered the big hit for the Trojans.  She drove home the lone run with a one-out double in the sixth.

The Lady Indians are back in SAC action on Tuesday as Catawba hosts nationally-ranked Lenoir-Rhyne for a 2 p.m. doubleheader.
