The Siena College softball team took both games of its doubleheader at Marist College this afternoon 6-3, 6-5 in a conference match-up on North Field. The Saints improve to 5-10 (2-2 MAAC) on the season, while the Red Foxes now post a 6-21 and are 3-7 in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action.
In the first game, Siena took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first when Adrian St. Cin singled to right center, scoring lead-off runner, Carrie Getz, who singled in her at-bat. The Red Foxes answered in the bottom half of the inning when Bobbi Jo Gonnello singled, scoring Chrystine McHugh.
In the top of the fourth, St. Cin cracked a solo homerun making the score 2-1. The Saints broke out in the top of the sixth when they scored four runs when Getz singled, scoring two runs. The Red Foxes got two back in the bottom of the sixth when Gonnello hit a single up the middle, scoring Kathleen McEvily who moved up to third on a wild pitch.
Nicole Fox pitched 5.1 innings in the loss before Elizabeth Moyer came in on relief, giving up no runs. Tisha Salamino earned the win for the Saints while Tara Campbell got the save.
In the second game, the Saints scored four in the first off of Marist pitcher Danielle Blake before she ended the innings on a strikeout. Moyer took over for Blake in the top of the third. St. Cin and Lisa Di Blasi each drove in two runs for the Saints in the inning.
The Red Foxes got on the board in the bottom of the third when McEvily hit a single, driving in McHugh and Allison Bartley, making the score 4-2. Siena got all the runs they needed in the sixth when Veronica Arredondo and Sarah Rose each drove in a run.
Marist would get two more runs, one in the fourth and one in the sixth, but it wasn't enough to overtake the Saints.
Siena returns to action tomorrow in a non-conference doubleheader at crosstown rival Albany.
