Bucs one-hit in game two

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (April 6, 2013) – Lipscomb’s starting pitching combined to throw 12 scoreless innings and the ETSU softball team was shutout in an Atlantic Sun doubleheader, 2-0 and 8-0 (F/5), Saturday from Betty Basler Field.

Tanner Sanders (11-7) allowed six ETSU (10-23, 0-13 A-Sun) hits in game one and Heather Parker (7-9) tossed a shortened one-hitter in the second game, moving Lipscomb (19-18, 8-6 A-Sun) above .500 overall and in conference play. Paige Neely did the majority of game two’s offensive damage, going 3-for-4 with a run and three RBIs.

Junior Katie Wolff (LaGrange, Texas) saw another quality start in the opener go to waste, where she allowed just two runs on five hits while striking out four. Wolff (4-12) has gone the distance in her last nine starts, allowing an average of fewer than three earned runs per outing.

Sophomore Whitney Leon (Dandridge, Tenn.) took the loss in game two (0-2) and was charged with six earned runs while allowing 12 hits through 3.1 innings. Meanwhile, first-year Buc Shaylyn Wood (Beacon, N.Y.) made her ETSU debut and pitched the final 1.2 innings, allowing no earned runs and two hits to go along with her first three strikeouts.

The Bucs saw their best chance to score come in the sixth inning of game one. Sophomore Casey Horner (Whitesburg, Tenn.) stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and one out. ETSU trailed just 1-0 at the time and Horner hit a screamer to left that was caught by Heather Montgomery. The Lady Bisons doubled off freshman Bethany Cowart (Ringgold, Ga.) at second base to bring the threat to a sudden halt.

Senior Tara Hartnett (Snellville, Ga.) was the lone Buccaneer with a multi-hit day, combining to go 2-for-6 with two singles. She had ETSU’s only hit in game two, smacking a hard grounder to second off the glove of Brittany Elmore who had to extend on an attempt to backhand the ball.

The Buccaneers are back in action at Betty Basler Field on Sunday and will look to put an end to a 17-game Atlantic Sun losing streak in the series finale. First pitch is scheduled for 1 p.m.
