Softball - Wed, Mar. 23, 2011
Softball remained perfect in Mid-South Conference play with a pair of wins Tuesday over Pikeville. The Tigers (14-8, 8-0 MSC) need three runs in the bottom of the sixth to rally past the Bears (8-9, 2-4) for a 3-2 win. The offense came to life in game two as GC won 8-0 in five innings.
Jordan Clemons tied the game with a two-RBI single and then scored the winning run off a single by Hillary Plain. Katie Mann did the rest in the top of the seventh to shut down Pikeville and hold on to the win.
Mann went seven innings, scattering seven hits and allowing just two runs with two strikeouts and no walks.
Mann, Michelle Dresselhaus, Rachel Johnson and Whitney Ealey got the other four hits for GC in the first game.
The Tigers came to life as Johnson, Clemons and Madelyn Brown all had two hits each. Johnson also scored two runs as did her sister Mallory. Ealey, Dresselhaus, Clemons and Brown each scored a run. Dresselhaus led with three RBI, while Clemons added two more that secured the run-rule victory.
Miranda Buchanan pitched five innings, giving up one hit and striking out five.
Georgetown returns to action Wednesday outside the conference in a doubleheader at Midway College.
