Ospreys walk-off on unearned run

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (March 30, 2013) – A fielding and throwing error on the final play of the game decided the outcome as the ETSU softball team suffered a defeat and series sweep to North Florida, 1-0, on Saturday afternoon from the UNF Softball Complex.

North Florida (27-10, 6-3 A-Sun) got a leadoff single from Brittany Hendrix in the home-half of a scoreless seventh and won on the next play. Abby Tewey put down a sac bunt which Jackie Baird (Ooltewah, Tenn.) could not come up with. Freshman Bethany Cowart (Ringgold, Ga.) picked it up and fired to Sam Carpenter (Forest City, N.C.) covering first, but the throw was not in time. Seeing Hendrix heading for third, Carpenter threw across the diamond, but was off target and Hendrix came down to score the winning run.

Junior Katie Wolff (LaGrange, Texas) saw another quality pitching performance end up in a loss. Wolff (3-11) went the complete game for her seventh consecutive outing and allowed just three hits while walking two. Her team-leading ERA stands at 2.56.

UNF’s Katie Wallace earned the win, going the distance while allowing four hits, one walk and striking out three. Wallace improves to 13-4.

The Bucs’ four hits came from Tara Hartnett (Snellville, Ga.), Nicole Fox (Peachtree City, Ga.), Casey Horner (Whitesburg, Tenn.) and Wolff, who all finished 1-for-3 at the plate. Cowart worked a walk to total ETSU’s five base runners.

Hartnett’s hit was a double off the wall in right to give ETSU its best scoring chance in the third. Fox moved Hartnett over on a groundout and it was as close to crossing home as the Buccaneers got.

ETSU will step out of conference on Tuesday when it hosts Tennessee Tech from the confines of Betty Basler Field. First pitch is set for 2 p.m.
