SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego softball team split their doubleheader with CSU Bakersfield on Saturday afternoon from the USD Softball Complex. USD (18-20, 3-7) took game one by a score of 3-2, but were shutout in game two 2-0.

In game one, CSUB (12-24, 7-7) put together a small rally where they took a 2-0 lead in the top of the second on a two-out bases-loaded infield single and a bases-loaded walk.

The Roadrunners would have added to their lead in the top of the fourth, but Dana Prelsnik made a great overhead running catch in center field and turned around to double-up the CSUB baserunner at first.

In the bottom of the fourth, Charly Swanberg ripped a ground ball through the right side to score pinch-runner Morgan Kurtz and cut the CSUB lead to 2-1.

USD starter Cassidy Coleman thwarted a Bakersfield rally in the top of the fifth after the Roadrunners loaded the bases with two outs. Coleman got Sydney Raeber to flyout to right to end the threat and keep the score at 2-1.

The Toreros finally took the lead with two runs in the bottom of the fifth after Lauren Tomey delivered an RBI single to left field to tie it and Danielle Mavridis hit into a run-scoring fielder's choice with one out and the bases loaded to take the 3-2 lead.

CSUB again loaded the bases with one out in the top of the sixth. However, Jenny Lahitte came on in relief of Coleman and proceeded to get a fielder's choice groundout comebacker and a strikeout to end the rally and preserve USD's one-run lead. CSUB left 13 runners on base in the game, compared to USD's eight.



Lahitte would close out the game in the seventh and give USD the win. Coleman (9-10) picked up the victory, throwing 5.1 innings where she allowed eight hits and two earned runs while walking four and striking out four. Lahitte picked up her first save of the season with 1.2 innings of work in relief, allowing two hits with a strikeout.

Dana Prelsnik (3-for-4, R) helped set the table for the USD offense, while Chloe Kaneko (2-for-3) tallied a multi-hit game.

Game two started out very slowly as both teams combined for just one hit through the first three innings. CSUB finally broke the scoreless tie with an RBI single to left in the top of the fourth that put the Roadrunners up 1-0.

Bakersfield added another one with another RBI single to left field in the top of the fifth, giving CSUB a 2-0 lead.

That would basically wind up being the extent of the offensive output for the game. USD only tallied two hits against CSUB starter Amber Mills.

Lahitte (8-10) took the loss in game two, throwing the complete game and allowing two earned runs on six hits while striking out seven and walking one.

The Toreros and Roadrunners conclude their four-game series on Sunday with a doubleheader from the USD Softball Complex beginning at 12 pm.
