AMHERST, MA - The Amherst College softball team dropped both games of a twin bill to Williams College Saturday afternoon at Hill Field. Williams junior hurler Kathryn Baldwin (Yantic, CT) tossed a complete-game seven hit shutout as the Ephs took the opener, 3-0. The Jeffs rallied in the sixth inning of game two but came up short as Williams held on for a 4-2 victory.

Williams drew first blood in the opening frame of the first game, knocking in a run on a pair of doubles. The Jeffs threatened in the second inning but ended up stranding a pair of runners. Baldwin led off the top of the fourth with a single to center field and eventually came around to score as Amherst misplayed a pair of fly-outs. First-year pinch hitter Mary Baccash (Evanston, IL) hit a sacrifice fly to center scoring sophomore infielder Johanna Rodriquez (Brooklyn, NY), to round the scoring out at 3-0. The Jeffs left a pair of runners on base in the bottom of the seventh to end the opener.

The second game remained scoreless until the top of the fourth when Williams tallied a trio of runs. Sophomore outfielder Carly Massey (Hyannis, MA) knocked a double off the left field wall to bring in two runs and senior second baseman Gisele Pinck (Luzerne, Switzerland) smacked another double to bring Massey across the plate. Amherst rallied to score a pair in the bottom of the sixth inning. Junior shortstop Missy Mordy (Sammamish, WA) led off with a walk. Junior outfielder Tamara Baer (Amherst, NY) followed with a single and both runners came around to score when sophomore first baseman Gina Scribner (Star, ID) lined a double into the outfield. Scribner advanced to third on a throwing error by the center fielder. Amherst then popped up to strand the game-tying run. Williams tacked on a run in the top of the seventh to set the final score at 4-2.

With the pair of losses, the Jeffs fall to 16-12 overall and 6-2 in conference play, while the Ephs improve to 23-13 and 7-1. Williams has now won the right to host the NESCAC Championship Tournament, which is slated to begin next weekend. Amherst returns to action Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. for their regular season finale at non-league foe Springfield College.
