Softball Tops Bellarmine To Close Out CSU Classic II
COLUMBUS, Ga. -- Catawba finished up play at the CSU Classic II on Sunday morning and topped Bellarmine 3-2 at Cougar Field. The Catawba Indians upped their record to 7-3 on the season. Bellarmine is 7-6.
A day after dropping a 7-2 decision to the Knights, Catawba struck for two runs in the second to take the lead. Singles with one out from Emily Huneycutt (Oakboro, N.C./W. Stanly HS) and Taylor Adams (Smithfield, N.C./N. Johnston HS) led to the runs. Huneycutt scored on an error, while Adams came home on a single from Gina Gerone (Brooklyn, N.Y./Madison HS).
Carley Tysinger (Lexington, N.C./C. Davidson HS) worked out of a jam in the bottom of the second as Bellarmine loaded the bases with two out and closed the gap when Kayla Padgett was hit by a pitch. Tysinger stuck out the final batter of the inning to avoid further damage.
Catawba picked up a big insurance run in the seventh as Caroline Turner (Kenly, N.C./N. Johnston HS) doubled home Gerone, who had led off the frame with a single. Bellarmine got a two out home run from Ally Foster in its seventh and got the tying run at first on a single before Tysinger posted the final out.
Tysinger (5-1) went the distance and fanned 12 in the win. Gerone had two hits.
The Lady Indians return to action on Saturday, traveling to GRU Augusta for a 1 pm doubleheader.
