Hood takes two from Gallaudet
FREDERICK, MD--The Bison traveled to Hood College for a conference doubleheader. While Hood took the first game 6-1, game two was in the bag for the Bison until Hood scored twice in the bottom of the seventh to take the game, 6-5.
In game one, Hood scored six runs in two innings to stay on top. Gallaudet scored in the sixth, not relinquishing a shutout. The score came when Casey McCullough reached on a fielding error and advanced to second on a throwing error. Kallie Williams had already reached on a fielder's choice and was at third base. Williams brought in the run as McCullough was headed towards second base.
During the second game, the Bison overcame a 4-1 Hood lead with four runs in the top of the fifth and seventh innings.
In the fifth, Amanda Smith and Virginia Keeler both hit singles with an Alicia Balzer single loading the bases. Keri Schmidt grounded out, advancing the runners to second and third, bringing Smith home. Then Kallie Williams hit a RBI single to center field, bringing Keeler home. Williams stole second, but Caitlin Mosholder popped up to end the inning.
After a scoreless sixth, the Bison bats picked up again. With two outs, Williams earned a base on balls, and scored when Mosholder doubled to left center and advanced to third off an error. Lori Hower then singled to right field, bringing Mosholder home and giving the Buff and Blue a 5-4 edge with three outs remaining.
Hood capitalized on two Bison errors and scored twice to take the game 6-5.
Gallaudet (4-5-1, 0-2 CAC) goes on spring break. Play resumes at home on March 25 against Columbia Union College. The first pitch is set for 3:00 p.m.
