Softball Drops Two in Rebel Spring Games
March 23, 2005
Cornell scored three runs in the fourth inning to break open a close game and held on for a 6-3 win in the first of two games for the Siena softball team Tuesday in Orlando. In the nightcap, Vermont scored four unearned runs in the second inning to gain a 5-3 win--handing the Saints their fifth loss in six games.
The Saints pounded out 10 hits against the Big Red. Freshman Jennifer Granato collected three hits and sophomore Jennifer Griner joined senior Lisa DiBlasi with two. Siena tied the game at 1-1 in the third inning on Granato's single to right field. The Saints other two runs came on Chani Granbt's single to right field in the fifth inning.
Adrian St. Cin worked four innings allowing four earned runs in suffering her first loss of the season. Janelle Iaquinto finished the game by tossing two innings of one-run ball.
Against the Catamounts, Megan Woltz singled and scored in the Saints first at bat to give the Green and Gold a 1-0 lead. Vermonts scored four unearned runs in the second inning following a key one-out error, and the Saints got no closer than three runs the rest of the way.
Tara Campbell suffered the hard luck loss pitching all six innings and allowing just one earned run. She struck out four batters after striking out a career-high 13 on Sunday.
The Saints complete play in the Rebel Spring Games Wednesday against Hartford and Albany.
