Box Score

WASHINGTON - For the second consecutive day the Georgetown softball team comes away with one win and one loss at the UMBC Tournament in Baltimore, Md. Siena College narrowly escaped with another 1 run victory in the morning, 7-6, and the Hoyas went on to defeat Morgan State in the afternoon game, 9-2.

A late 4-run comeback in the sixth inning was good enough for Siena to win their second matchup against the Hoyas, both ending in one-run finishes. Georgetown led 5-3 going into the bottom of the sixth but surrendered four hits and two unearned runs to help allow Siena back in the game.

Georgetown started off by scoring two runs in the first inning on bases-loaded walks by junior Madeleine Giaquinto (Falls Church, Va./Bishop O'Connell) and sophomore Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake). Junior Elyse Graziano (Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) got in on the action in the second inning, scoring after a leadoff single, stealing second base, and reaching home after advancing on a fielders choice and an error. Georgetown would be up 3-1 after two innings of play.

Siena tied up the ballgame with a two-run homerun in the bottom of the fourth inning however Georgetown would regain the lead in the top of the sixth. Sophia Garqicevich-Almeida (Riverside, Calif./Martin Luther King) hit a two-run double to drive in Hyson and Graziano and Alexandria Antilla (Antioch, Ill./Antioch Community) would bring in Garqicevich-Almeida two batters later with a single to right field to put Georgetown up 6-3.

Siena's comeback in the bottom of the inning was enough to hold for the win. Hyson threw all six innings, striking out seven batters.

Lauren O'Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) took the mound in the second game of the day against Morgan State and continued her excellent week of pitching with a complete game three-hitter for her second win of the tournament. The Hoya offense provided the run support, scoring nine in the victory.

 

 

Molly Morrison (Northfield, IL./New Trier) hit an RBI double in the second inning to bring in the first run of the game, and scored on a fielders choice groundout by Graziano later in the inning to put the Hoyas up two. Shikara Lowe (Beaverton, Ore./Jesuit) singled through the left side in the top of the third, bringing home Garqicevich-Almeida who reached base on an error for the 3-0 lead after three.

Samantha Giovanniello (Floral Park, N.Y./Floral Park Memorial) homered in the fourth inning in a game where she went 4-5 from the plate with 2 RBI, both coming from the homerun. The Hoyas put up four more in the seventh inning to cement the victory. Jordan Hansen (Omaha, Neb./Millard West) had a big inning, driving in two runs with a single to left field and stealing home for the final run of t he game.

Georgetown starts a three game home stand on Tuesday in a matchup with the Princeton Tigers, followed by two weekend games against Villanova to begin BIG EAST conference play. First pitch on Tuesday is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. at Guy Mason Field.
