Graziano had an RBI single against James Madison
March 9, 2013
WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University softball team (4-17) fell in their final two games of the Coastal Carolina Tournament in Myrtle Beach, S.C., falling to James Madison University (12-6) by the score of 10-1, and to Coastal Carolina University (12-10), 6¬-0. The matchups were the second time that Georgetown has faced these teams this weekend, dropping the first games against each team as well.
In their first game, Georgetown was victim to the powerful bats of James Madison, which drove in ten runs on eleven hits, including four homeruns. The Dukes scored in every inning but one and complemented their hitting with a strong pitching performance, surrendering only four hits. Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) took the loss for the Hoyas, pitching five innings. Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake) pitched one inning of relief.
Georgetown scored its run in the bottom of the fifth on an Elyse Graziano (Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) single to left field. Junior Madeleine Giaquinto (Floral Park, N.Y./Bishop O'Connell) led off with a single and would exit the game for pinch runner Cristina Fletcher (White Plains, N.Y./The Ursuline School). A fielding error and fielder's choice groundout advanced her to third before being driven in by Graziano in the next at-bat.
James Madison had four homeruns on the day; two solo homeruns, and both a 2-run and 3-run homerun in the fifth inning of the ballgame. The game would be called after six innings.
The Hoyas were held scoreless against Coastal Carolina for the second time this season, managing three hits against the Chanticleers for the second time as well. Georgetown was unable to put any runners in scoring position throughout the ballgame.
Lauren O'Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) got the start for Georgetown, going 3.1 innings and striking out six. Hyson made her second appearance of the day on the mound in the fourth inning to complete the rest of the game.
Georgetown arrives back in Washington, D.C. to prepare for a game against Drexel on March, 13, their first home game of the season. First pitch is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. at Guy Mason Field.
