BOSTON, Mass. – A six-run first inning by Boston University proved to be too much for the Lafayette softball program as the Leopards fell to the Terriers 10-1 in six innings on Saturday afternoon. The loss snapped the Maroon & White’s season high four-game winning streak.

Three straight singles with two outs in the top of the first inning got the Leopards on the board to start the game. After back-to-back base hits by Allison Brown and Kristen Marinelli, Bryn Gornick singled to right center to bring home Brown. However, Melissa Robinson struck out looking to end the Lafayette (10-30, 4-12) inning.

Boston (27-18, 9-4) answered in the bottom half of the first, scoring six times in the frame. An infield throwing error allowed four unearned runs to cross home plate later in the inning. The Terriers tacked on two more in the second before an out was recorded to increase their lead to 8-1 which chased Robinson from the game. Robinson allowed eight runs (four earned) on seven hits.

Gornick came on in relief and retired 10 straight batters following a walk to the first hitter she faced. She did not give up a run until the sixth inning when Boston shortstop Brittany Clendenny deposited a two-run home run over the right field fence to end the game by virtue of the eight-run rule. Gornick worked 4.2 solid innings out of the pen, giving up just three hits and two runs.

The two teams are back in action tomorrow with a doubleheader. First pitch for game one is scheduled for 12 p.m.
