Butler at Georgetown | L, 2-0 | Box Score
WASHINGTON – Georgetown softball (20-20, 8-7 BIG EAST) dropped its series finale against Butler (19-24, 7-7 BIG EAST) on Saturday afternoon at Guy Mason Field by the final of 2-0. The Bulldogs took the three-game series, 2-1.
Each team recorded five hits in the afternoon matchup. Butler tallied a run in each the second and third innings to gather the 2-0 victory.
The Hoyas loaded the bases in the bottom of the first with only one out. Senior Elyse Graziano (Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) opened the inning with a single and advanced to second on her 15th stolen base. Sophomore Grace Appelbe (Phoenix, Ariz./Xavier College Prep) put down a sacrifice bunt to move Graziano over to third, but ended up reaching as well with a perfectly placed bunt. Junior Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) then drew a full-count walk, one of two on the day for her, to load the bases. But Butler’s starting pitcher Callie Dennison worked her team out of the jam while getting the Hoyas to strikeout and popout in foul territory to end the inning and the scoring opportunity.
The Bulldogs singled to start the second inning. After a wild pitch and a sacrifice bunt, Butler found itself with a runner on third with one out. Hyson, who started the game in the circle for GU, recorded a strikeout for the second out, her lone strikeout on the afternoon. Krosley Ogden of the Bulldogs then pulled a ball between 3B and SS to put her team on the board with a RBI single.
Butler scored its second and final run in the third inning on a suicide squeeze.
The Hoyas found themselves with the bases loaded again in the fifth inning. With runners on second and third, Hyson drew an intentional walk to load the bases with two outs. But Georgetown was not able to score after a strikeout ending the inning.
The two teams went hitless for the sixth and seventh innings.
Hyson (L, 11-11) went four innings for the Hoyas, allowing four hits and two earned runs. Junior Lauren O'Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) pitched in relief for the final three innings, striking out two while only allowing one hit.
The Hoyas hit .274 as a team in their three games against Butler while drawing 17 walks to bring their team season total up to 144. Georgetown’s walk total trails BIG EAST leader Creighton (145) by one.
In the midst of a five-game home stand, Georgetown hosts George Washington (12-26-1, 2-8 A-10) on Tuesday, April 22 at 7 p.m. The Blue & Gray will then play Towson (24-18, 4-5 CAA) on Thursday, April 24 at 3 p.m. Both games will be played at Guy Mason Field in Washington, D.C.
