Box Score

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University softball (20-30, 9-10 BIG EAST) team fell to No. 8 Louisville (44-8, 17-2 BIG EAST) in Sunday's rubber match by a score of 10-1 in five innings. Georgetown moves to 9-10 in the BIG EAST with three conference games remaining on the regular season schedule.

Louisville led for the entire ballgame, using a total of six extra base hits, including three homeruns to defeat the Hoyas. The Cardinal jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning and followed up with four runs in the second for the early 5-0 lead. They would put five more on the board in the fourth inning to lead 10-0 after four.

Shikara Lowe (Beaverton, Ore. Jesuit) prevented the shutout with an RBI single in the top of the fifth inning, her fourth of the series. Junior Elyse Graziano (Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) reached base on a fielder's choice groundout followed by a Sophia Garqicevich-Almeida (Riverside, Calif./Martin Luther King) to advance her to second. Lowe came through in the next at-bat to put the Hoyas on the board for their only run.

Sophomore's Laruen O'Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) and Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) split the pitching duties for Georgetown, each throwing two innings. O'Leary stared the game for Georgetown, allowing five runs on six hits in her two innings pitched. Hyson had a similar line, allowing five runs on five hits while in the circle.

The Blue and Gray return to Guy Mason field for a rare Tuesday Night matchup cross-town opponent George Washington. First pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m. on April 30th. The game will be a final tune-up before the Hoyas play their final BIG EAST series of the season against Seton Hall next weekend.
