Softball rolls to sweep of Hilbert

 

The Pitt-Bradford softball team rolled to a sweep of Hilbert Wednesday afternoon, winning by scores of 15-0 and 7-0.

In the opener, the Panthers erupted for 12 runs in the first inning to coast to an easy victory in shortened run-rule game. Three more runs in the third accounted for all the scoring.

It was more than enough support for starter Sydney Mosby, who improved to 8-3 on the year with five innings of two-hit ball. She struck out eight and walked one.

Pitt-Bradford totaled nine hits and took advantage of seven Hilbert errors. Ang Comilla and Mosby had two hits apiece, and Mosby drove in a team-high three runs. Comilla added two RBIs and Olivia Taylor also had two. With a base hit in the second inning, senior Jamie Winzeler reached 100 for her career.

After being no-hit through the first three innings of the nightcap, the Panthers broke through in the fourth.

Lauren Hogue doubled to lead off the frame, stole third and scored on a wild pitch. Amber Fox's RBI infield hit later in the inning pushed the Panther lead to 2-0.

With a runner on in the fifth, Hogue lined a pitch over the wall in left centerfield for her second home of the season, extending the lead to 4-0. Mosby added a run-scoring hit in the sixth, and Comilla drove in two more runs by pulling a double down the left field line.

Krista Jacobs went the distance on the mound to improve to 3-1. She allowed five hits, did not walk a batter and struck out two.

Pitt-Bradford improves to 14-10 on the season and 9-3 in the AMCC. The Panthers travel to Medaille Thursday.
