STORRS, CONN. -
The Providence College softball team (12-18-1, 2-4 BIG EAST) defeated the Connecticut Huskies, 3-2, in a 12-inning battle on Sunday, April 7 in Storrs, Conn. Senior Corinne Clauss (Davie, Fla.) recorded her third win of the week, allowing 10 hits after pitching all 12 innings.
Connecticut got on the scoreboard first with one run in the second and one run in the third (2-0). Freshman Kiara Baldassari (Denville, N.J.) scored the Friars first run of the game in the fifth inning after sophomore Megan Rollings (Marysville, Wash.) singled and the Huskies’ right-fielder made an error to advance the runners (2-1). Providence scored another run in the sixth inning when sophomore Kristie Dederick (Camarillo, Calif.) doubled to bring in sophomore Shanelle Harrell (Irvine, Calif.) early in the inning (2-2). Both teams were scoreless in the seventh inning to go into extra innings.
In the top of the 12th inning, Baldassari singled to centerfield to get on base and then stole second when Rollings was at the plate. Rolling’s hit forced Connecticut second-baseman Duclos to make an error which allowed Baldassari to advance two bases to score the game-winning run (3-2).
Baldassari led the Friars with three hits and two runs in six at bats.
Providence will return home to host the Louisville Cardinals in a weekday doubleheader on Tuesday, April 9. The first game is scheduled to start at 12:00 p.m.
