O'leary pitched her 13th complete game of the season in her game one victory
April 10, 2013
WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University softball team (15-25, 5-5) won game one and fell just short on a comeback rally in the seventh inning in the second game two, splitting Wednesday's doubleheader with UConn (16-16, 3-5), 7-3 and 4-3, respectively.
Down four in the top of the seventh inning in game two, the Hoyas made valiant effort at a comeback but came up just short. Junior Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake) started things off with a leadoff single to reach base before Cristina Fletcher (White Plains, N.Y/The Ursuline School) came in as a pinch runner, advancing to second on a wild pitch. Junior Rachel Nersesian (San Leandro, Calif./Bishop O'Dowd) entered the game as a pinch hitter in the next at-bat and singled to right field, moving Fletcher to third base. After junior Elyse Graziano (Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) walked to load the bases, freshman standout Samantha Giovanniello (Floral Park, N.Y./Floral Park Memorial) doubled to center field, cutting the deficit to two runs.
A few batters later, Alexandria Anttila (Antioch, Ill./Antioch Community) grounded out to the third baseman with one out in the inning, enough to bring home Graziano from third to make the game 4-3. It came down to a bases loaded scenario with two outs and Madeleine Giaquinto (Falls Church, Va./Bishop O'Connell) at the plate, who struck out swinging to end the ballgame.
Sophomore Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) did the bulk of the pitching in game two, throwing five innings of four-hit ball and striking out three batters while walking four others.
Game one saw Georgetown take lead first when the Hoyas exploded for seven runs in the fifth inning, while using the pitching of Lauren O'Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) to keep UConn at bay. Every Hoya got at least one at-bat in the inning, totaling seven runs on six hits.
Slovacek hit a two-run double in the inning to first put Georgetown on the board and Giovanniello also hit a two-run double to move the lead to four runs. Sophia Garqicevich-Almeida (Riverside, Calif./Martin Luther King) doubled to right center field to score Giovanniello and eventually scored with Taylor Koenig (Akron, Ohio/Walsh Jesuit) on an error by the UConn second baseman.
O'Leary threw her 13th complete game of the season to earn her 10th win, limiting the Huskies to three runs.
The Blue and Gray return to Guy Mason Field on Saturday, April 13 for a weekend series with BIG EAST opponent Syracuse, who is currently 1-5 in BIG EAST play. First pitch on Saturday the 13th is scheduled to take place at noon, with a second game afterwards scheduled for 2 p.m., with the third game of the series to be played on Sunday.
