Cara Savarese drove in the Hoyas lone two runs
April 11, 2009
SYRACUSE, N.Y. - SYRACUSE, N.Y. - The Georgetown University softball team (10-25, 4-10 BIG EAST) could not dig themselves from an early deficit, as they dropped the second game of a doubleheader to Syracuse, 5-2 on Saturday afternoon.
Mackensey Carter (Mission Viejo, Calif./Mission Viejo) allowed five runs on eight hits over 6.0 innings to take the loss, as the Hoyas offense managed just four hits a game after recording 10 in a 2-1 extra-inning victory.
After being held scoreless over the last 11 innings of game one, Syracuse wasted little time getting on the scoreboard opening the game with three-consecutive base hits, capped by Haille Gibbs two-run single, giving the Orange a 2-0 lead.
In the top of the second inning SU added three more runs, as Jamie Kelling hit a two-run single of her own. Gibbs would later drive in another run to put Syracuse in front, 5-0.
Georgetown would cut the Orange lead to three runs in the top of the fifth inning when Cara Savarese (Syosset, N.Y./Syosset) singled to drive in Demetria Cipriano (Coral Springs, Fla./Coral Springs Charter) and Kelsie Hanson (Katy, Texas/Katy), closing GU to 5-2.
It would be the last offense Georgetown would manage, as Brittany Gardner retired the last six Hoya hitters to earn her sixth victory of the season.
Georgetown returns home to Guy Mason Field on Wednesday, April 15 when they meet George Mason at 6 p.m. It is the first of a four-game homestand during the week, as GU hosts UMBC on Thursday at 2:30 p.m. before playing two games with Connecticut on Sunday, April 19 beginning at 11 a.m.
