Due West, SC – Pfeiffer University softball split its first Conference Carolinas double-header of the season while visiting Erskine on Monday afternoon. Pfeiffer fell in the first game 7-3, but managed to hold off a late Erskine rally to win game two 5-4.
Game One – Pfeiffer 3, Erskine 7
The Fleet took a 1-0 lead in the first inning when Katee Knapp (Branford, FL) was hit by a pitch and later scored on an error. Falcon starter Allison Braswell (Asheboro, NC) then settled in and held Erskine scoreless for the next four innings. Pfeiffer tied the game up in the fourth, taking advantage of three Fleet errors. The Falcons took the lead for the first time in the fifth, with an RBI double from Kylee Nichols (McMinville, OR) that scored Megan McNeill (Robbins, NC) and added another run that inning on a sacrifice fly by Stephanie Bethea (Greensboro, NC) to go up 3-1.
In the bottom of the sixth, Erskine had runners at first and third with one out when Rebekah George (Mauldin, SC) singled to centerfield to score Lindsey LaPrad (Summerville, SC) and made it a 3-2 game. That brought Jocelyn Smith (Greer, SC) to the plate. She singled to left field to load the bases for Melinda Bowman (Aiken, SC). Bowman blasted a 1-0 pitch off the left field wall for a two-run double to give the Fleet a 4-3 lead. Smith and Bowman then scored on an error and Kerry Fincher (Easley, SC), who reached on the error, later scored on a ground out by Kayla Vinson (Berea, SC). The game rested at 7-3 in favor of the fleet going into the seventh inning.
Pfeiffer loaded the bases in the top of the inning on singles by Brittany Waldon (Port Orchard, WA) and Bethea, while Martina Bullard (Godwin, NC) reached on an error. With one out, Erskine starter Lauren Gunter (Batesburg, SC) gave way to Leigh Ann Shelley (Fork, SC) to finish the game out. Shelley came in and got a ground out and strike out to pick up her second save of the season.
Waldron went 2-3 with a run scored for the Falcons and Nichols was 1-4 with a double and RBI. Braswell took the loss allowing six runs (four earned) in 5.1 innings of work with six strike outs.
Bowman led the Fleet at the plate going 2-2 with a double and two runs batted in, while Kelly Davis (Weaverville, NC) was 2-4. Gunter picked up the win allowing three runs (two earned) in 6.1 innings of work.
Game Two – Pfeiffer 5, Erskine 4
The Fleet once again got on the board first in game two with a RBI single in the second inning from Kelly Davis. The lead didn’t last long as Pfeiffer took advantage of an Erskine error in the third and scored three runs. With runners at first and second, Martina Bullard lined a double into left center to score two runs, and later scored on a double by Shelby Fleming (Roseville, CA) to make it a 3-1 game.
Erskine cut the lead to 3-2 in the fourth on an RBI single from Vinson that scored Amber Hartley (Batesburg-Leesville, SC) who led the inning off with a walk. The Falcons added two insurance runs in the sixth, after three walks to load the bases; Stephanie Bethea hit a two run single to make it a 5-2 game.
In the bottom of the sixth Hartley led the inning off with a single, but Gunter ground into a double play to clear the bases. With two outs, Davis singled to left and then Vinson walked to bring Knapp to the plate. She smashed a double into the right center field gap that scored both runners and made it a 5-4 game. That was as close as the Fleet got as Christie Thomas (Durham, NC) came in and retired the next four Erskine hitters to pick up the save.
Bullard led the Falcons at the plate going 2-4 with a double and two runs driven in, while Bethea finished the game 2-4 with two RBIs. Ranzy York (Milton-Freewater, OR) picked up the win allowing four runs in 5.2 innings of work.
Davis was perfect at the plate for the Fleet going 4-4 with an RBI and run scored, while LaPrad finished the game 3-4 and Vinson was 1-2 with an RBI. Rebekah George took the loss allowing five runs (two earned) in 5.1 innings of work with six strike outs.
Pfeiffer is now 11-7 overall and 1-1 in conference play, while Erskine is 14-11 overall and 1-1 in the conference.
