Jeffs Fall From Playoff Contention with Doubleheader Loss to Williams

May 1, 2005

AMHERST, MA - The Amherst College softball team was eliminated from playoff contention with a pair of losses to visiting Williams College on Sunday afternoon in a matchup that was originally scheduled for Williamstown but moved to Amherst at the last minute due favorable field conditions. Williams (20-12/7-1 NESCAC West) took the opener 5-4, clinching a berth in the NESCAC Postseason Championship Tournament, and then won the second game, 9-6.

Amherst (14-12-1/4-4 NESCAC West) trailed 4-2 in Game 1, but knotted the score with a pair of runs in the top of the seventh as junior Laura Trigeiro led off with a single and scored on a fielder’s choice, and sophomore Annalise Rodli plated another run with an RBI single. Williams then won the game with a two-out rally in the bottom half of the inning when Laura Noel reached on an error, and pinch runner Melissa Vandermyn trotted home on a pinch-hit single by Taryn Goodman.

Amherst junior hurler Miya Warner struck out four and surrendered four hits and four earned runs before moving to second base in the seventh. Rookie Samantha Miller pitched the final frame and took the loss to fall to 0-4. Trigeiro and first-year Ralina Shaw each singled twice for the Jeffs, while Kelly King singled and drove in a pair of runs.

Alana Frost, Katie Powers and Noel each homered for Williams. Starting pitcher Clara Hard went the distance and improved to 7-3 with the win.

Frost and Beth Lorge each homered for Williams in the nightcap, while Liz Gluck tossed a complete game, upping her pitching record to 3-5.

Trigeiro paced Amherst in defeat with a trio of singles. Shaw added a pair of doubles and two RBIs. Hilary Little drew the start and took the loss to drop to 3-4.
