Lions take two from Gators

CHESTNUT HILL, MA – Emerson took both games of a double header from Pine Manor in Great Northeast Athletic Conference softball action Tuesday afternoon, upending the Gators 4-1 and 10-0. Courtney Smith (Syracuse, NY/Bishop Ludden) and Sara Murray (Auburn, NH/Manchester) picked up wins for the Lions, limiting the Gators to eight hits over both games.

A one-out Jess Kennedy (Apponequet/Lakeville) double down the right field line went for naught for the Gators in the third inning of Game 1.  Smith induced a lineout from Michelle Campbell and struck out Kayla Nielsen struck out to get out of the jam, keeping the game scoreless after three.

 

The dreaded lead-off walk came around to haunt Gators starter Tia Nelson (Rockport, MA/Rockport) an inning later, when, to open the fourth, she walked Christina Naramore (Ammissville, VA/Rappahannock). Smith pinch ran for Naramore and scored on a Sierra Wood (Las Vegas, NV/Palo Verde) single to left, putting the Lions ahead, 1-0. Jaclyn Castalleno (Staten Island, NY/Tottenville) then struck the big blow, plating Wood and Brittany Martin ( with a two-run, two-out single to left, increasing the lead to 3-0 in the middle of four.

Emerson tacked on a bit of insurance an inning later on a Smith ground out that plated Fargo following her lead-off triple to center.

 

The Gators got on the board when Michelle Myers (Freeport, NY/Freeport) doubled to the fence in center, coming around to score on Kennedy’s opposite-field double to left-center. Campbell followed with a ground out to short on which Kennedy was thrown out trying to advance to third, ending the hopes of a Gators rally in the fifth.

 

Smith finished the Gators off without incident in the sixth and seventh in a 4-1 victory. The junior struck out three, scattering seven hits.

 

Fargo, Naramore, Martin and junior Jilisa Rawding (Tewksbury, MA/Tewksbury) all collected two hits in support of Smith.

 

For Pine Manor, Nelson struck out five, allowing four runs, all earned.

 

The Lions put two on the board with the help of two errors in the first inning of Game 2. In her first career start at third base, Courtney Wallace’s error allowed Fargo to reach and score on a Naramore double. Naramore came around to put Emerson up 2-0 on a Martin single to center, which was bobbled by Kaylyn Delgado.

 

Emerson went up 4-0 with two runs on the aid of three more Gators errors in the fourth. Nikki Battaglia (Freehold, NJ/Freehold) scored after a lead-off double, the Lions only run of the inning. In the fifth, Emerson plated two on a bases loaded double from Martin to go up 6-0.

 

Lions starter Sara Murray cruised, carrying a one-hitter into the fifth and striking out three in four innings. The sophomore constantly kept the Gators off-balance, changing speeds and allowing a Myers single in the fourth as the Gators lone hit. Kelsey Tuthill (Middlefield, CT/Suffield) relieved Murray and struck out the side in a perfect fifth, locking up a 10-0 victory in five innings.

 

Pine Manor (1-17, 1-8 GNAC) travels to Norwich on Friday for a 3:30 p.m. double header and to St. Joseph’s (ME) on Saturday for a double dip starting at noon.  Emerson (16-6, 11-1 GNAC) takes on Emmanuel on Friday at 6 p.m.
