WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University softball team is in Spartansburg, S.C. this weekend for the Coke Zero Spartan Classic Tournament and was on the wrong end of two more impressive pitching performances by Presbyterian College and the University of Kentucky, falling 2-0 and 8-0 in their Saturday games, respectively.
The first game against Presbyterian College was a real pitcher's duel, with no hits given up by either team until the fourth inning. Presbyterian opened up the inning with the walk and after back-to-back strikeouts by Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) managed to hit one out of the park for a 2-0 lead, the only runs of the ball game. Hyson had another worthy performance but unfortunately had to take the loss, allowing only 3 hits. She also had nine strikeouts in seven innings pitched.
The Hoya offense tallied only one hit in the game, a single to left field with nobody out in the sixth inning by Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake). She would make it to third after a walk and a wild pitch but would end the inning on base. The team however did not go down without a fight, striking out only once and walking four times.
Georgetown's second game of the day against a ranked Kentucky squad was the same story on offense, being allowed on two hits in the game. Alexandria Anttila (Antioch, Ill./Antioch Community) doubled to right center field in the fifth inning and center fielder Elyse Graziano Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) singled to left in the sixth but that was about all the Hoyas could do. Georgetown would however keep the Wildcat defense at work with only four strikeouts.
Kentucky scored their first run with their second batter of the game, a homerun to right center field. They would be kept off the board until the fourth inning where they scored four runs on three hits to break open the game. They would score three more in the sixth inning before the game was called.
Lauren O'Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) took the mound for the game against the Wildcats, striking out seven in 5.1 innings pitched.
The Blue and Gray have one more game against USC Upstate on Sunday morning at 11 a.m.
