Pioneers Close out Myrtle Beach Trip

Pioneers Close out Myrtle Beach Trip

The Alfred State softball team couldn't overcome slow starts in either of their contests as they wrapped up their Myrtle Beach trip with a pair of losses, 17-10 to Keystone and 11-2 to the University of St. Joseph's.

In the opener, the Pioneers fell behind 12-0 early but fought back into the game. Aubri Mosier (Rome, PA) hit a sac fly in the 3rd and the Pioneers exploded for six runs in the 4th inning to get right back in the game. Stormi Kruger (Medina) had a RBI, Mosier drew a bases loaded walk, Melissa Barber (Nassau/Catholic Central) scored on a wild pitch, and Courtney McDaniel (Arkport) drove in two to make it 13-7.

After Keystone scored two in the 4th, Annie Corrao (Grand Island) hit a RBI single, Kruger drove home a run on a RBI grounder, and Mosier singled home a run to make it 15-10. The Giants scored two more in the 5th and held the Pioneers off the board the rest of the way.

Every Pioneer in the lineup had a hit in the contest. McDaniel was 2 for 4 with 2 RBI, Barber, Trisha Shingleton (Byron Bergen), and Betsy Butlak (Lake Shore) were each 2 for 4 while Zoe Derr (Elmira Heights/Thomas Edison) was 2 for 5. Mosier led the team with 3 RBI.

Versus St. Joseph's, the Pioneers scored two runs in the top of the 1st without the benefit of a hit to grab the early lead but the Bluejays bounced right back and scored nine of their own to take control of the contest. 

Amaria Sharon fired a two-hitter for St. Joseph's. Derr and Barber collected singles for the Pioneers.

The blue & gold are slated to play a four-game series with Lyndon State (VT) next Saturday and Sunday weather permitting.
