Softball - Tue, Apr. 12, 2011
Georgetown College's softball team found itself in another hole heading into the final at bat of game two against Lindsey Wilson College.
This time it was too large to overcome. The Tigers (23-10, 16-2 Mid-South Conference) once again are a game back of the Blue Raiders (36-5, 17-1 MSC) after a 4-3 loss.
Georgetown loaded the bases and with one out Chelsea Riney hit a two RBI double to deep right center field. An out later, senior Rachel Johnson kept hopes alive with a RBI single. Her sister Mallory came in next. In game one against ace pitcher Anyibell Ramirez, Mallory ripped a ninth inning homerun that eventually gave the Tigers a 3-2 lead. But in relief of starter Morgan Paschall, Anyibell Ramirez got her to strikeout.
Ramirez came in to face Whitney Ealey in the top of the seventh after Paschall gave up a double to Riney.
The Tigers got behind early, as the Blue Raiders scored two in the first and two more in the third off reliever Katie Mann.
Mann settled down and held LWC in check, but Georgetown had trouble with the off speed of Paschall.
The Tigers return to action Wednesday with a home doubleheader against Midway College. First pitch is set for 4 p.m.
