Jeffs Split Non-League Twinbill with Trinity

April 12, 2003

AMHERST, MA - The Amherst College softball team split a non-league doubleheader with visiting Trinity College on Saturday, winning the opener 6-2 before dropping the nightcap by the same score, 6-2. The loss in game two snapped a five-game winning streak for the Jeffs, who moved to 11-7. Trinity is now 4-13-1.

In the opener, Amherst scored four runs in the first inning on five walks and a hit batsman off Trinity starter Kate Hunter (Ross, CA). Hunter lasted just 2.1 innings and took the loss to fall to 0-3. The Jeffs added two more runs in the third on an RBI double by junior center fielder Della Huff (San Rafael, CA) and a throwing error that plated senior right fielder Tamara Baer (Amherst, MA).

Trinity notched both of its runs in the seventh on a solo home run by Laura Watson (Carlisle, MA) and a sac fly by Susan Kelly (Milford, MA), both off Amherst starter Miya Warner (Berkeley, CA), who went the distance and upped her pitching record to 11-3 with her ninth straight win. Warner carried a no-hitter into the fifth inning, allowed three hits overall and tied a career high with 14 strikeouts. She also paced the offense with a pair of hits, including a leadoff double in the first inning.

Victoria Moshier (Old Saybrook, CT) pitched 3.2 innings of scoreless relief for Trinity.

It was Trinityís turn to draw first blood in the nightcap, as first baseman Maureen Heneghan (Windsor Locks, CT) christened the game with a leadoff single off Warner, moved to second on a sac bunt and trotted home on an RBI double by Laura Heath (Windsor, CT).

The Bantams touched Warner for three more runs in the top of the fourth, all unearned, thanks in part to a trio of Amherst errors and a two-run double by rookie left fielder Lindsey Freeman (Lancaster, MA).

Amherst answered with a pair in the bottom of the fourth as senior shortstop Missy Mordy (Sammamish, WA) singled home Warner and later scored on a muffed throw at home plate. That was as close as they would get against Moshier, who cruised through the latter innings to seal the win, upping her record to 1-5. Warner fell to 11-4 with her first loss in her last 10 decisions.

Heath and Watson each doubled home runs in the seventh inning for Trinity. Amherst managed just four hits off Moshier. Heath paced the Bantams with three hits, two RBIís and a run scored. Heneghan, Kelly and Freeman added two hits each.

Amherst returns to action with a non-league doubleheader Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. against visiting Westfield State.
