Softball Struggles v. Linfeild

It was a beautiful weekend in Oregon as Junior Jaci Young (Aiea, Hawaii) made her 12th start of the season against conference foes Linfield. Young had a strong performance, but was unable to get the win.

Puget Sound’s softball team lost both doubleheaders against Linfield and Willamette on April 3 and 4 while in Oregon.

The Loggers’ first game of their road trip was at Linfield. The final score was 8-0 in favor of Linfield. Young was on the mound for the Loggers with a strong showing, giving up only two earned runs.

Junior Kayla Andrus (Kent, Wash.) came into the game in the sixth inning. Pitching for one inning, Andrus struck out two batters and only gave up three hits.

Both Sophomore Bailee Larson (Tacoma, Wash.) and Junior Lisa Colombo (Los Gatos, Calif.) had a multiple-hit game with two hits each.  Larson went 2-2 at the plate. Colombo went 2-3.

The Loggers threatened to score in the first inning when Larson’s single put runners on first and third base with one out remaining. Unfortunately, though, the Loggers were unable to capitalize.

In the third inning, Colombo’s first single advanced runners to first and second base. First year Jessica Gott (Lynwood, Wash.) tried to score from second base off of Larson’s second single, but was thrown out at home.

The Loggers lost their second game of the day 9-1. Gott pitched 3.1 innings for the Loggers facing 16 batters. First year Kasey Stern (San Diego, Calif.) pitched an inning, and Andrus pitched a third of an inning.

Gott led off the fifth inning with a single to put her on first. The next at-bat, first year Haley Gray (Port Angeles, Wash.), was hit with a pitch to put runners on first and second base. Larson grounded out to move the runners into scoring position. Sophomore Amelia Rice (Arlington, Mass.) grounded out, which allowed Gott to score from second base.

The Loggers defense only had one error in their two games against Willamette; it was a strong defensive performance for the Loggers.

On Saturday, April 4, the Loggers traveled to Willamette to play their final two games of the weekend. The first game they lost 9-0. Young started on the mound for the Loggers pitching three total innings. Andrus came on in the fourth inning to relieve Young.

The Loggers had two players scoring position in in the second and fourth inning. Larson hit a single and then stole second base in the second inning. Colombo hit a single and then advanced to second off a wild pitch in the fourth inning.

Willamette won the final game of the doubleheader 8-0. Gott pitched 3.2 innings for the Loggers. Stern pitched 2 innings in relief for Gott.

The Loggers had an opportunity to tie the game in the second inning when Larson and sophomore Paige Schaffer (Ketchikan, Alaska) took third and first bases. The Logger offense was unable to capitalize, stranding both on base.

The Loggers had another chance to score in the top of the third when first year Amber Popovich (Mililani, Hawaii) got to third base due to an error caused by the Willamette pitcher. Popovich was thrown out at home after trying to score on sophomore Kristi Nagamine’s (Honolulu, Hawaii) ground out.

The Loggers have four games on April 11 and 12 against conference foes George-Fox and Pacific.
