Softball - Wed, Feb. 15, 2017

Kara Howard roped a double at the top of the fourth to ignite an offensive explosion host Union College did not recover from in game one on Tuesday. Georgetown College's softball team scored six runs that inning and cruised to a season-opening 10-1 win over the Bulldogs (0-1).

The Tigers (1-0) pounded out 10 hits, more than enough offense for freshman pitcher Audrey Dodd, who started her collegiate career with eight strikeouts. She scattered five hits and walked two in the 21 batters she faced in six innings of work for the win.

Averie Lozano closed the door with a quick bottom of the seventh. She allowed one hit and one run in the relief effort.

Katie Young led the offensive charge with three hits on four plate appearances with two runs scored and an RBI. She got one of each in the fourth as she tripled to score Allison Watson. Young then scored on Hannah Howes' double. Corrin Robinson went 1-for-3 with two RBIs on a homerun in the seventh as GC plated four more runs.

The Tigers had five multiple base hits – three doubles, a triple and a homerun.

Rachel Rhode went the distance for the Bulldogs, giving up 10 hits and seven earned runs with three walks and four strikeouts.
