Game 1 Box Score

MORAGA, Calif. - The University of San Diego softball team split their PCSC doubleheader at Saint Mary's on Friday afternoon. The Gaels took game one 4-1, before USD bounced back to claim a 4-1 victory of their own in game two.

Saint Mary's (11-20, 3-3) scored all of their runs in game one in the bottom of the second inning, the majority of which coming on a three-run home run from Fitzpatrick. SMC tacked on another run, this one unearned, when a USD fielding error allowed a run to score from second.

The Toreros (16-17, 1-5) picked up their lone run of the ball game in the top of the third on an RBI double to left field by Lauren Tomey.

Cassidy Coleman (8-8) was handed the loss for USD after throwing 6.0 innings where she allowed four runs (two earned) on four hits while striking out seven and walking one.

In game two, the Toreros mounted a late rally to earn the come-from-behind win. SMC went up 1-0 in the bottom of the fifth as both teams endured a pitching duel up until that point. The Gaels finally broke the scoreless tie with a sacrifice fly that scored a run.

USD wasted no time in answering as the Toreros used Mary Grabowski's first-career home run, a three-run shot to left-center, to take a 3-1 lead in the top half of the sixth.

The Toreros then added an insurance run in the top of the seventh on a two-out RBI single by Dana Prelsnik.

SMC got two runners on in the bottom of the seventh but Jenny Lahitte (7-9) closed the door to pick up the win. Lahitte tossed a complete game, allowing one run on six hits, while striking out eight and walking two.



Aside from Grabowski's go-ahead homer, Prelsnik (2-for-4, RBI, R) and Danielle Mavridis (2-for-3) turned in strong games at the plate for the Toreros in game two.

The Toreros and Gaels conclude the four-game series on Saturday with another doubleheader slated to start at 12 pm from SMC's Cottrell Field.
