Alexandria Antilla (Antioch, Ill./Antioch Community)
April 6, 2013
WASHINGTON - Alexandria Anttila (Antioch, Ill./Antioch Community) hit four homeruns and recorded 10 RBIs, and Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) pitched five innings and hit two homeruns, both leading the Hoyas to victory in game one of Saturday's doubleheader with Rutgers in Piscataway, N.J. Georgetown came back in the seventh inning to win game one, 12-11, while Rutgers took the win in game two by the score of 7-4.
Anttila went 4-4 from the plate in game one, hitting a three run homerun in the first inning, a grand slam in the second inning, a solo homerun in the fourth inning and the go-ahead two run homerun in the seventh inning. The four homeruns and 10 RBIs are a single game Georgetown softball record and are both game highs for an individual performance in the BIG EAST this season. Anttila also had a 2013 BIG EAST individual game high of 16 total bases and tied for an individual game high with four runs scored.
Anttila tied an NCAA Division 1 softball individual game record with four homeruns and 16 total bases in one game. She is the first to hit four homeruns in one game since 2010 and the first to hit four consecutive homeruns in one game since 2002. Anttila's 10 RBIs fall just short of the NCAA record of 11 in one game, recorded most recently in 2012.
Hyson was the other star of the game, pitching five innings and picking up the win after relieving sophomore Lauren O'Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) in the third inning. Hyson hit two homeruns of her own in game one, her second making it a one run game in the sixth inning before Anttila hit the go-ahead homerun in the top of the seventh, capping off an exciting win for the Hoyas. Hyson and Anttila combined for seven of the nine hits in the game in and batted in all 12 runs.
Georgetown took the early lead in the second game of the day when Shikara Lowe (Beaverton, Ore./Jesuit) singled to left field in the third inning to score freshman Samantha Giovanniello (Floral Park, N.Y./Floral Park Memorial). Rutgers scored five runs in the bottom half of the third inning and held that lead for the remainder of the game.
Georgetown made it a one run game in the fourth inning when Lowe singled through the left side for two more RBIs, cutting the score to 5-4. Rutgers responded in the bottom of the fourth with a run and added an insurance run in the sixth to make 7-4 score final.
Georgetown and Rutgers play their final game of the series on Sunday, April 7 at the Rutgers Softball Complex. First pitch is scheduled for noon.
