PITTSBURGH, Pa. - The Georgetown University softball team (15-25, 0-8 BIG EAST) could not keep up with Pittsburgh's offense, as the Panthers (22-17, 5-6 BIG EAST) totaled 11 runs in the second, third and fourth inning to defeat the Hoyas, 11-0 in five innings in game two of a BIG EAST Doubleheader on Wednesday afternoon.

Overall, Pittsburgh scored six runs in the second inning, then added four runs in the third and another run in the fourth to take a commanding 11-0 lead.

Giaquinto broke up a no-hitter in the top of the fifth inning, though the Hoyas were unable to bring her around the bases, as the game ended after five-innings, with the Panthers claiming an 11-0 victory to sweep the doubleheader.
