BOCA RATON, FLA. -
The Providence College softball team was defeated by Towson, 7-5, in the team’s final game of the “Strike-Out Cancer” Tournament on Sun., Feb. 24 in Boca Raton, Fla.
Trailing 3-0, the Friars got the offense going in the top of the third inning. Freshman Kiarra Baldassari (Denville, N.J) singled to shortstop to get on base, and advanced to third off a throwing error, which put Baldassari and sophomore Shanelle Harrell (Irvine, Calif.) on base. Baldassari scored after sophomore Kristie Dederick (Camarillo, Calif.) made it to first off a fielder’s choice and Harrell advanced to third. Dederick was replaced by pinch runner sophomore Juliana Thibodeau (Cohoes, N.Y). Senior Stephanie Kiesel (Ramona, Calif.) singled to drive Harrell in. Before the end of the inning, Thibodeau reached home on a sacrifice fly, tying the game at 3-3.
After coming into the game in the first, Clauss pitched the next four innings before she was relieved by junior Emily O’Keefe (Southington, Conn.). Clauss allowed two runs off four hits and registered five strikeouts before her relief came in the middle of the fifth inning. O’Keefe was relieved by Amos at the end of the same inning, after allowing one walk and one run. Towson scored another run in before the end of the inning off Amos, putting the Tigers in the lead, 7-3.
The Friars then scored two runs in the sixth inning. Baldassari and Harrell singled to get on base. Baldassari reached home on a sacrifice fly from sophomore Sarah Kitterman (Houston, Texas), and Harrell followed her after a single from Kiesel drove her in two batters later. After a scoreless seventh, PC fell to the Tigers, 7-5. Amos finished the game, recording three strikeouts in two innings pitched.
Kiesel paced the Friar offense by going 2-for-3 with two RBIs on two singles. Towson was led by senior Jillian Donnelly, who went 3-for-4 on the day with one run and two RBI.
