Georgetown Edged-Out by Providence in Third Game of Series

Senior Shikara Lowe was once again invloved much of the action

April 21, 2013

Box Score

WASHINGTON - Despite scoring the fifth, sixth and seventh innings, the Georgetown University softball team (19-28, 8-8 BIG EAST) was unable to come out on top in the rubber match against Providence (17-24-1, 4-10 BIG EAST), falling 6-5 on Sunday.

The Hoyas let an early four run deficit get the best of them, coming up one run short at the end of the ballgame. The team scored one run in each of the final three innings but could not complete the comeback, leaving two runners on base as they ended the game on back-to-back strikeouts at the plate.

Georgetown once again got on the board quickly when Sophia Garqicevich-Almeida (Riverside, Calif./Martin Luther King) singled to right field to bring home Samantha Giovanniello (Floral Park, N.Y./Floral Park Memorial), who led off the game with a double.

After Providence scored two runs in the second, the Hoyas used the top of the third to even up the score. Senior Shikara Lowe (Beaverton, Ore./Jesuit) led off the inning with a double to right center field and two batters later Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) doubled to center field to score Lowe from second.

The Friars responded in the bottom of the inning, posting four runs in the frame. Three of the four runs scored came from three consecutive solo homeruns from the first three batters of the inning for Providence. Pitcher Lauren O'Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) was removed from the game after the inning after allowing four earned runs on five hits.

Junior Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake) tightened the gap in the fifth inning with an RBI single that scored Lowe from second after she led off the inning with a walk. Lowe returned the favor in the sixth inning, hitting a bases-loaded sacrifice fly to right field that scored Elyse Graziano (Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) to make the score 6-4 Friars.

 

 

The bases were loaded again in the top of the seventh inning when Taylor Henry (Front Royal, Va./Skyline) singled to right field to make it a one run game with zero outs for the Hoyas. A groundout and two consecutive strikeouts put an end to Georgetown's comeback chances.

Georgetown continues BIG EAST action with first place Louisville next weekend. A three game series is scheduled to start on Saturday, April 27 with a doubleheader in Louisville, Ky.
