Four-Run Seventh Leads Bucknell to Saturday Sweep
April 5, 2014
EASTON, Pa. - Bucknell took both games from Lafayette softball on a windy Saturday at Metzgar Fields, defeating the Leopards 7-3 in game one and 12-0 in the game two.
The Leopards did not go quietly in the bottom of the seventh. The Maroon & White started the inning with back-to-back singles by Berger and Kelly Lallis. Bison pitcher Cindy Cherness retired the next two Lafayette batters until Kristyn Marinelli earned a two-out walk to load the bases for Orlando. The freshman shortstop lined out to her counterpart to end the game.
In the second game of the twinbill, the Bison scored seven runs in the first three innings to pull away to a 12-0 decision. In the second inning, Christina Martinez hit a three-run, opposite field home run. Bucknell then tacked on four runs on four hits in the third frame before adding two more in the fourth to lead 9-0.
The Leopards and Bison finish up their three-game set on Sunday with first pitch scheduled for noon.
