Siena Rallies to Split Twinbill at Colgate
April 29, 2004
HAMILTON, NY-- Siena scored eight runs in its first three at bats of the second game, providing more than enough insurance for sophomore sensation Tara Campbell in a dominant 13-4 victory over Colgate. The Raiders took the first game 4-1 behind the pitching of senior Elana Isaac.
Isaac (16-6) picked up her 59th career win to tie Tara McGoff (1996-99) for the school record for victories. She allowed six hits, while striking out five and walking none.
Colgate's Natalie Rawson was 3-for-6 in the doubleheader with three RBI's and her ninth home run of the season. Rawson is now second on Colgate's all-time RBI list with 115.
In the opener, Colgate took a 3-0 lead with three runs in the third inning off Siena starter Tisha Salamino. Isaac led off the inning with a single and moved to second on a walk to Stacy Mui. Both players moved up a base on a pass ball, and then Isaac scored on a wild pitch. Mui then scored on Erica Anderson's single, and Anderson came home later on Natalie Rawson's RBI single.
The Raiders extended their lead to 4-0 in the fifth inning on Rawson's second RBI of the game. Siena scored three runs in the seventh inning, but Colgate got out of the inning when a Siena runner was out in a rundown.
In the nightcap, Siena pounded three Colgate pitchers with 16 hits. Sarah Rose was 3-for-4 with four RBI, and Megan Woltz drove in three runs and scored three. Freshman Jen Griner had three hits and scored five runs and Adrian St. Cin blasted a key homerun.
Natalie Rawson was 1-for-3 with a lead off home run in the fifth inning in a losing effort for the Raiders. Her home run broke up a perfect game by Siena's Tara Campbell. It also extended Rawson's hitting streak to nine straight games.
