Game 1 Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The USD softball squad split their PCSC doubleheader with Utah Valley University on Saturday afternoon at the USD Softball Complex. The Toreros (20-23, 5-9) captured game one by a score of 3-2, but were edged in game two 1-0.

Both teams combined for six errors in game one with all five runs between the two teams coming across as unearned. The Toreros managed to make the most of their opportunities. USD put up a pair of unearned runs in the bottom of the first to take a 2-0 lead. The Toreros took advantage of a Utah Valley error that eventually led to RBI groundouts by Chloe Kaneko and Lauren Tomey.

The Wolverines (26-16, 8-6) cut into the USD lead by scoring a run in the top of the fourth with the help of a USD error on a mishandled throw at first following a bunt. UVU then tied the game in the top of the fifth, again thanks to a USD fielding error, bringing the score to 2-2.

Mary Grabowski came up big for the Toreros with the go-ahead run in the bottom of the sixth. Grabowski ripped a one-out triple into the right center gap and came around to score on the play when the UVU second baseman overthrew the relay throw to third, giving USD the 3-2 lead they would hold on to for the win.

Cassidy Coleman (11-10) earned her third consecutive victory after throwing the complete game, allowing two unearned runs on six hits while striking out eight and walking two.

Grabowski led the Torero offense in game one by going 2-for-3 at the plate with a run scored. Kylie Ordos and Dana Prelsnik also scored runs for the Toreros.

 

 

Game two cruised by in a crisp one hour and 26 minutes. Each team only registered two hits apiece as UVU scored the game's only run early on. All six runs between the two games were unearned.

The second game started out similar to game one as UVU went up 1-0 in the top of the second following a throwing error by USD starter Jenny Lahitte. Lahitte snagged a sharp liner with runners on first and third but overthrew Caitlin Rooney trying to double-up the runner at first, allowing the run to score from third.

From that point on, neither team did much damage until UVU starter Josi Summers closed out the game with a 1-2-3 seventh inning to give the Wolverines the victory.

Lahitte (8-12) was the hard luck loser on the day despite throwing 7.0 innings where she allowed just one unearned run on two hits while striking out seven and walking one. This was Lahitte's 12th consecutive start where she has allowed three earned runs or less.

USD and Utah Valley play the final two games of the series on Sunday with a doubleheader starting at 11 am from the USD Softball Complex. Sunday will also be Senior Day for USD's three seniors; Kimberlee Shimizu, Mickell Escobar and Lauren Tomey.
