Sophomore Gina Rossi
April 19, 2007
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College softball team scored three times in the third inning and never looked back en route to a 3-1 victory over Holy Cross Thursday afternoon in a non-conference game at Raymond Field.
The Friars (18-15) took a 3-0 third inning lead as they homered twice. Sophomore Gina Rossi (Bakersfield, Calif.) led off with her second home run of the season. After senior Caroline Santilli (Westwood, Mass.) singled and stole second base, freshman Danielle Bertolette (Temecula, Calif.) belted a two-run, line drive home run to center field.
The Crusaders (4-32) cut the lead to 3-1 in the sixth inning when pitcher Sheena Stangler singled to right center field to score Caitlin Deitz, who was pinch running for Amanda Audette. However, Holy Cross could not get any closer. Stangler and Natalie Cruz each finished with two hits each. Stangler also pitched six innings and allowed three runs on six hits and struck out three batters.
Senior Sara Surosky (Elmira, N.Y.) improved to 9-9 on the season as she pitched four innings, allowed no runs on two hits and struck out five batters. Sophomore Jennifer Maccio (Huntington Station, N.Y.) earned her first career save as she pitched three innings and allowed one run on three hits.
The Friars are back in action on Saturday, April 21 with a home BIG EAST Conference doubleheader against Rutgers, beginning at noon.
