Panthers clip St. Mary's, fall to Richard Stockton

The Pitt-Bradford softball team returned to action Thursday at the Gene Cusic Collegiate Classic in Cape Coral, Fla., splitting games with St. Mary's (Ind.) and Richard Stockton (N.J.).

Sydney Mosby lifted the Panthers to a 2-1 win over St. Mary's to kick off the day. Mosby collected three hits, drove in a run and went the distance on the mound.

Lauren Hogue pushed Pitt-Bradford in the third with an RBI single to centerfield, and Mosby extended the lead to two with a run-scoring hit in the fifth.

The Belles cut the lead in half in the sixth on consecutive doubles and with two outs they loaded the bases full. However, Mosby induced pinch-hitter Jackie Martinez into an inning-ending groundout.

Mosby retired the side in order in the seventh for her second straight win. She allowed eights, walked one and struck out seven.

Richard Stockton defeated Pitt-Bradford 6-1 in the nightcap to remain undefeated. The Panthers managed six hits, but were 1-11 for with runners in scoring position and left eight runners on base.

The Ospreys erupted for four runs in the second and added two more in the fifth. Mosby accounted for Pitt-Bradford's only run, singling in Jamie Winzeler in the third.

Jenifer Anthony was charged with the loss, surrendering four runs on seven hits in three innings.

Pitt-Bradford stands at 2-4 and plays North Park (Ill.) and Dallas (Texas) Friday morning.
