Senior Shikara Lowe extended her hit streak to six games in Wednesday's doubelheader
April 3, 2013
WASHINGTON - With first place in the BIG EAST on the line, Georgetown fell twice to Notre Dame in a Wednesday afternoon doubleheader at Guy Mason Field, by the score of 8-2 in game one and 15-3 in game two. The Hoyas record falls to 13-22, 3-2 in BIG EAST play, while Notre Dame improves to 24-8, 5-0 in the BIG EAST.
Georgetown could not match the hot bats of the Fighting Irish, who scored 23 runs on the day. Notre Dame pitcher Laura Winter drove in six of the 23 runs, while retiring 20 consecutive batters on the mound, picking up the game one victory.
The Blue and Gray took the early lead in game one after Shikara Lowe (Beaverton, Ore./Jesuit) blasted a two-run homerun over the fence in center field for the 2-0 lead. Samantha Giovanniello (Floral Park, N.Y./Floral Park Memorial) also scored on the play after leading off the game with a single. Those would be the only two hits of the ballgame for Georgetown, with Winter retiring the rest of batters faced, 12 by strikeout.
Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) pitched the majority of game one and game two, after Lauren O'Leary (La Canada,Calif./La Canada) was removed from the game after the third inning with the 2-1 lead. Hyson pitched three innings, allowing seven runs on seven hits. She also started game two, lasting four innings and striking out one batter. Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake) also saw action on the mound, throwing four innings in total.
The Hoyas also did their scoring in game two in the first inning. Down 3-0, Giovanniello and Lowe each got on base with singles, and Alexandria Anttila (Antioch, Ill./Antioch Community) brought them home with a three-run homerun to left center field to even up the game at three, her team leading sixth homerun of the season. The hits for Lowe continue her hitting streak, which has now reached six games.
Slovacek and Elyse Graziano (Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) also reached base on hits in game two.
