The Pitt-Bradford softball team split with Pitt-Greensburg on Saturday, rolling to an 8-0 win in game one before being roughed up 10-1 in the nightcap.

Sydney Mosby fired a four-hit shutout in the opener. She walked one and tied her season-high with nine strikeouts. After running into trouble in the first, she settled in to retire 15 of 16 batters over the next five innings.

Olivia Taylor's two-run single in the second opened the scoring, and three batters later, Jamie Winzeler doubled in a pair. Mosby added a run-scoring extra base hit in the frame.

Mosby extended the lead to 7-0 in the fourth with a two-run single, and Ang Comilla homered to lead off the seventh to cap the scoring. It was Comilla's first career home-run and one of her three hits in the game. Mosby also had three hits as the Panthers finished with nine total.

Walks and errors doomed the Panthers in game two. Pitchers Jenifer Anthony and Krista Jacobs combined to issue five free passes, and the Pitt-Bradford defense committed two costly errors.

Pitt-Greensburg led 4-0 after the second and 6-0 after the third. Taylor's RBI double in the fifth accounted for the Panthers' only run. The Bobcats scored four in the sixth to end the game on the run-rule.

Anthony allowed four runs on three hits in two innings of works. She walked four and did not strike out a batter. Jacobs gave up six runs on seven hits in four innings of relief work.

Pitt-Bradford didn't register a hit until the fifth inning and managed just three all game.

The Panthers move to 11-9 on the season and 6-2 in the AMCC. They host D'Youville Monday at 3 p.m.
