Georgetown College softball was on a hitting on streak, but facing No. 8 Campbellsville struggled to find any offense. Day two against the Mid-South Conference foe, GC managed just nine total hits in two games and stranded 11 runners. Campbellsville finished the season sweep with 10-0 and 7-2 wins Saturday.
Three home runs did a lot of the damage in game one. In the bottom of the first, it was back-to-back solo shots to put the home team up for good. Then in the bottom of the fourth, Markie Smith hit a grand slam to break the game open.
Kayla Williams went three innings and Jessica Claxton worked in relief for one.
Georgetown College softball ran into an offensive onslaught Friday against No. 8 Campbellsville University. Game one, CU hit a grand slam and a three-run home run in a 9-3 victory. The Tigers (14-12, 11-9) buckled down in game two, but the home team still pulled off a 5-3 win.
Campbellsville opened a 3-0 lead in the second game but Chelsae Osborn's single scored Marissa Massie in the fourth and two more runs scored in the fifth for level game. Chaselyn Allgeier doubled and Emily Snow's singled, setting stage for Shelby Engle's double to deep left center.
Georgetown College softball broke game two of Senior Day wide open with seven runs in the bottom of the fourth, reclaiming the lead for good against Cumberland University. GC won 10-5 to earn the season split with the Bulldogs (11-21, 7-11).
The Tigers (14-10, 11-7) opened up a 3-0 lead in the first inning, but again the long ball from CU erased the deficit. In the top of the third, Kassydi Montgomery hit her 14th home run of the year for a 3-2 game. Jessica Roper followed a few batters later with a two run shot and a 4-3 lead.
Cumberland University scored five runs in the top of the first, highlighted by Sydney Broderick's three-run home run to win 12-6 Saturday over Georgetown College softball. The Tigers (13-10, 10-7) got runs here and there against freshman Leah Newsome, but two runs in the fourth and three more in the sixth put the game away for the Bulldogs (11-21, 7-10).
Kayla Williams made it two-thirds of an inning as CU batted around. Jessica Claxton came in to finish off the first and pitch five more innings. Kara Howard finished it off for Georgetown.
Georgetown College softball has found its once very potent offense become stagnant the past few games, but turned that around Friday evening in the nightcap with Cumberland University. The Mid-South Conference doubleheader was a split on day one. The Tigers (13-9, 10-6) used small ball to push two runs across the board and built a large enough lead for an 8-6 win of game two.
"Sometimes it is just about manufacturing runs," said GC coach Thomas Thornton. "We didn't get to play any games this week so it was a long layoff. We stranded a lot of runners in game one so we just wanted to get out of the gates quickly from the plate."
In the first four innings, Georgetown scored all eight runs with the winning pair coming across in the fourth.
