Green Terror takes game-one pitchers' duel
CARLISLE, Pa. – Erinne Warrenfeltz (Smithsburg, Md./Middletown) threw a complete-game, three-hit shutout in the opener of McDaniel's doubleheader split with Dickinson in Centennial Conference (CC) softball action on Tuesday.
The Green Terror (13-21, 3-9 CC) took the opener 1-0 before the Red Devils (15-16, 8-6 CC) came back to score four runs in the first two innings of game two for a 4-1 win.
In a pitchers' duel, game one featured just six combined hits. The lone run of the game came in the top of the fifth inning.
In game two, Mary Kate Flannery led off with a single before an Erin King double put runners at second and third.
An Alesha Sisco RBI groundout plated Flannery before Kyrie Budnik dropped a two-out single into left to score King for a 2-0 advantage.
Ari Coulter led off the second with a single before Madison Gerish reached on a bunt single.
Jess Haklar's sacrifice moved the runners to second and third before a Flannery bunt single plated Coulter.
Sisco followed with a two-out, bases-loaded single down the left-field line for a 4-0 lead.
In the top of the fourth, Lauren Fusco (Laurel, Md./St. Vincent Pallotti) led off with a single.
A Warrenfeltz double put runners at second and third for Samantha Staub (Mt. Airy, Md./Linganore), who singled to score Fusco.
After pinch-runner Lindsey Blohm (Bel Air, Md./Toms River North [N.J.]) stole second, Lauren Toomey (Pottsville, Pa./Pottsville Area) drew a walk to load the bases with no outs but Allison Jordan worked out the jam, allowing just two singles the rest of the way for the win.
Jordan struck out five in the win.
Warrenfeltz fanned six batters in 11 2/3 innings of work.
The Green Terror returns to action in a doubleheader at Franklin & Marshall on Thursday. The first game of the twinbill begins at 3:30 p.m.
