Softball Defeated 6-1 in Game Two with Boston University
ORONO, Maine -- Hilary Kane (Concord, N.H.) was able to spoil the Terriers' shutout bid as she blasted a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh but that would be the only run the Black Bears would score as Boston University took the victory by a score of 6-1. The loss slips Maine back to 7-24 overall and 0-5 in America East action while the Terriers improve to 22-12 and 6-2 in the league. Dagmar Ralphs (O'Fallon, Ill.) and Jennifer Eberhardt (Glendale, Ariz.) each recorded hits for the Black Bears.
After a scoreless first three innings, Boston University took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth. With runners on second and third and one out, Emily Roesch grounded out to second base which allowed Brittany Clendenny to score from third.
The Terriers added a pair of runs in the top of the fifth to extend their lead to 3-0. Once again with runners on second and third and two away in the inning, Megan Volpano ripped a two-RBI double into the gap in left center field, plating Jayme Mask and Erica Casacci with the Terriers second and third run of the contest.
Boston University added another run in the top of the sixth on a RBI double into left center by Amy Ekart. The Terriers then tacked on two more runs in the top of the seventh to take a 6-0 lead. After a leadoff single followed by a pair of bunt singles loaded up the bases for the Terriers, Volpano dropped a single into right field, scoring Kendra Meadows. A sac-fly to left from Clendenny plated Mask to put Boston University up 6-0 heading into the bottom of the seventh.
With two away in the seventh inning, Kane stepped in and launched a solo shot over the left center field fence for her second home run of the season. However, that would be as close as Maine would get as the Terriers took the contest 6-1.
Kylie Sparks (Kirkland, Wash.) went the distance for the Black Bears in the loss as she falls to 2-8 after giving up six runs on 12 hits with one walk and four strikeouts.
Whitney Tuthill picked up her sixth win of the season as she gave up one run on just three hits with two walks and one strikeout.
