Game 1 Box Score

MORAGA, Calif. - The USD softball team split with Saint Mary's in the final two games of their PCSC series on Saturday afternoon from SMC's Cottrell Field. Saint Mary's took the first contest 2-0, while USD bounced back for a nine-inning 4-2 victory in the series finale. The teams split the four-game set two games apiece.

Saint Mary's starter Jessica Lemmon held USD (17-18, 2-6) to only three hits in game one with Kylie Ordos (2-for-4) collecting two of those hitting out of the leadoff spot.

Meanwhile the Gaels (12-21, 4-4) took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first on a sacrifice fly, followed by their only other run of the game in the bottom of the third on an RBI single.

The Toreros threatened in the top of the seventh by loading the bases but a groundout by Lauren Tomey ended the ball game.

Cassidy Coleman (8-9) was saddled with the loss after tossing 6.0 innings, allowing two runs on six hits with five strikeouts and four walks.

In game two, it was Mary Grabowski's two-run home run in the top of the ninth that lifted USD to victory. Grabowksi, who homered for the second day in a row, connected with no outs and a runner on first to put USD up by the eventual final score of 4-2.

SMC got out to an early 2-0 lead when they plated a pair of runs in the bottom of the first on a two-run homer of their own.

The Gaels held that lead until USD tied it at 2-2 in the top of the fifth with an RBI single to center by Tatum Schultz and two-out infield single by Dana Prelsnik.



The game would stay knotted at 2-2 while neither team mounted a serious threat until Grabowski's eventual game-winning long ball in the ninth. Jenny Lahitte (8-9) sat down the Gaels in order to close out the game in the bottom of the ninth.

Lahitte was the victor on the afternoon with 9.0 innings pitched, allowing just two runs on three hits with five strikeouts and one walk.

Schultz went 3-for-4 with an RBI in game two, while Grabowski turned in a 2-for-4 game with two RBI and two runs scored.

The Toreros return to action on Wednesday, Apr. 3 with they travel across town to play San Diego State at 6 pm.
