Panthers squander chance to sweep D'Youville

The Pitt-Bradford softball team split an AMCC doubleheader with D'Youville Monday. The Panthers won game one 3-0 while the Spartans took game two by a score of 4-0.

Sydney Mosby spun seven innings of three-hit ball in the opener, stretching her scoreless inning streak to 16.2. She walked three and struck out seven while lowering her ERA to 1.27.

Jamie Winzeler led off the bottom of the first with a triple and scored on an error moments later. Ang Comilla drilled a home run to centerfield to open the Panthers' half of the fourth, and Winzeler added a RBI single in the frame to cap the scoring. Her two hits keyed the Pitt-Bradford five-hit attack.

Jessica Banning stifled the Panthers in game two, limiting them to six total hits, including three through the first five innings. By that point, the Spartans had built a 4-0 cushion.

D'Youville plated runs in both the first and third, and a two-run two-out single in the fifth added to its margin.

Pitt-Bradford's best scoring chance came in the first with runners at second and third and just one out, but the Panthers failed to capitalize.

Jenifer Anthony took the loss, allowing four runs on 10 hits. She walked three and struck out two.

Pitt-Bradford drops to 12-10 on the season and 7-3 in the AMCC. The Panthers will host Hilbert on Wednesday at 3 p.m. The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but has been moved due to impending weather.
