Box Score

WASHINGTON - In a low scoring affair, the Georgetown University softball team (14-24, 4-4 BIG EAST) fell to Rutgers (21-14, 5-4 BIG EAST) by the score of 3-1 on Sunday afternoon at Rutgers Softball Complex in Piscataway, N.J. It was the third game of the weekend between both teams, with Rutgers winning two of the three contests.

Each team was held to only four hits, but Rutgers was able to provide more run support, using a two run double in the fifth inning as the game deciding runs. Sophomore Lauren O'Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) got the start, lasting four innings and giving up two of the three runs in taking the loss. She struck out one batter and walked two.

Rutgers took the early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth inning with a single through the left side, and added the additional two runs in the fifth with the double to center field to make it a 3-0 after five innings.

Georgetown made a last effort in the seventh when Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) led off the inning with a double down the left field line. Freshman Taylor Henry (Front Royal, Va./Skyline) singled to left field three batters later to make it a two run game, but the Hoyas would end the game on a fly-out to the second baseman with two runners left on base.

Hyson took the mound in the fifth inning for Georgetown, giving up one run on one hit while striking out three batters.

Georgetown has now lost to consecutive games after Saturday afternoon's record breaking performance by Alexandria Anttila (Antioch, Ill./Antioch Community) and the Hoya offense. Anttila hit four homeruns and recorded 10 RBIs while Hyson added two homeruns, totaling a record six on the day for Georgetown. The Hoyas continue play on the road with a double header on Wednesday, April 10 against the University of Connecticut. First pitched is slated for 1 p.m. with the second game scheduled for 3 p.m.
