Brown Softball Splits in Final Day of Rebel Spring Games
March 22, 2008
Kissimmee, FL - Junior Michelle Moses (Cooper City, FL) allowed just one hit in nine innings during Brown's 1-0 nail-biting victory over Manhattan College on Saturday afternoon. The Bears then matched up with the Siena College, falling 9-0 in five innings during the final game of the 2008 Rebel Spring Games.
Although neither team scored during the first eight innings, the Bears had no problem hitting Manhattan's Ashley Rampino, who started at the mound. She pitched six innings and allowed four hits.
Coming in for relief was Melissa Donnelly, who allowed three hits, and gave up the game-winner to Bruno to receive the loss at the mound. Brown's Moses improved her pitching record to 3-2 on the season.
While Brown had multiple scoring opportunities throughout the game, Brittany Lavine (Peoria, AZ) came up huge for the Bears in the ninth inning, as she hit a single to right field to score junior Linnea Anderson (El Dorado Hills, CA) to win the game, 1-0. Anderson gave a solid effort in today's win, going 2-for-4 from the plate. Junior Kelsey Wilson (Monterey, CA) went 1-3, while Lavine went 2-for-4.
Bruno wasn't as fortunate in game two against the Siena Saints, falling 9-0 in five innings. The Saints jumped out to an eight run lead to begin the game. Sophomore Jessica Iwasaki (Cupertino, CA) started at the mound, giving up the first five runs, and freshman Kristie Chin (Katy, TX) checked in for relief giving up three.
Siena picked up one more run in the second inning, and was then held scoreless the next three. Brown will now play Webber-International on Tuesday, March 25, at 2:00 p.m.
