Softball - Wed, Mar. 26, 2014
University of Pikeville scored three runs in the first three innings, just enough offense to take game one of the Mid-South Conference doubleheader at Tiger Softball Complex Wednesday, 3-2.
The Tigers (14-9, 9-6) struggled to get on track offensively, going hitless for the first four innings. GC woke up a bit when Cassidy Taylor roped a two-out single. The junior came around on a double by Hayden Seng, trimming the deficit to 3-1.
Georgetown seemed well on its way to rallying in the team's final at-bat when Ashley Coppage walked and Sandy Young reached on a bloop single. Marissa Massie did her job in sacrificing the two into scoring position. Taylor got her second hit with an RBI single, pulling the Tigers within one with just one out. Seng popped up and Taylor Shaw grounded out to end the rally with runners at second and third.
Kayla Williams went the first four innings, giving up five hits and two earned runs. Jessica Claxton finished the game, shutting the Bears (7-15, 3-10) down.
The freshman gave up two hits and no runs with two strikeouts and a walk.
Taylor was the only hitter with multiple base knocks. Emily Snow, Seng and Young all had one hit each.
