We play Lehigh away for a double header starting at 2:30.

The Mountain Hawks are 18-15 and are 8-1 in the Patriot League.  We beat them earlier in the year by a 4-2 score.  They took 2 from St. Joe's, 3-1 and 2-1.

They are hitting .250, don't have a lot or power, but do have a couple of speedsters.  Their ERA is 2.82, led by Senior Christine Campbell's 1.99, but backed up by Sophomore Emily Sorem's 2.25.

Their current RPI is #121. 

These should be close, low scoring games.

Quense is in the circle, Aughinbaugh in RF, Storm is DP for Vergona, and a new lineup experiment, Trivelpiece is in LF for Figueroa.
Campbell, their ace, is pitching for Lehigh.

In the top if the first, Canessa doubled but was LOB.
In the bottom half, Quense gave up a bunt single, then another single, got a pop up bunt, Trivelpiece then made an error in LF (so much for that experiment) and a run scored, Quense got 2 GB outs.  Rams down 1-0 after 1.

In the 2nd, Quense got a bloop single and advanced to 2b on a SS error.  That was it.  Campbell has an excellent changeup that we've been fishing at.
In the bottom half, Quense gave up a 1 out triple down the RF line to the #8 hitter.  A squeeze attempt failed as Quense flipped to Vergona for the out.  A comebacker ended it.  Rams down 1-0 after 2.

Canessa walked in the 3rd with 2 out.  Mayer popped up for out #3 in a 16-pitch AB.
In their half, Quense gave up a bloop single, then a double that Trivelpiece maybe should have held to a single.  A GB to 2b scored a run.  Rams down 2-0 after 3.

In the 4th, Aughinbaugh walked, but that was all that we got.
In the bottom half, Skrepenak is in for Trivelpiece in LF and Storm for Hughes at 2b, defensively only.  Quense gave up a walk, a bunt single, a double, scoring 2 more.  Rams down 4-0 after 4.

In the 5th, Hughes got a 2-out single, but that was all.
Stocks in to pitch for Quense, who moves to 1b, with Shaw to SS for the 1st time; Mayer to 3b.  Storm made a fielding error at 2b and then threw the ball into the dugout, but Stocks pitched her way out of it.  Rams down 4-0 after 5.

In the 6th, Mayer doubled and Shaw singled her home, her 47th RBI.  Quense walked.  Both were LOB.
In Lehigh's half, Stocks retired the side in order.  Rams down 4-1 after 6.

In the 7th, Hughes walked with 1 out.  Canessa grounded into a force and Mayer back to the pitcher.

Rams lose 4-1. 

We got only 5 scattered hits and had an equal number of Ks.  We had very few well hit fair balls.
Quense went 4 innings, giving up  4 runs (3 earned) on 7 hits, with 1 K and 1 BB.  Stocks went 2 innings, giving up 1 hit.

We're 30-10 now.  Our next game vs Lehigh will be at around 4:30 pm.

In game 2, Auginbaugh is in the circle, Shaw at SS and Mayer at 3b.  Shaw hasn't played SS since HS; not even in travel ball.  Skrepenak is in LF, Trivelpiece in RF.  No Figueroa.  Johnston is DP for Trivelpiece.  Vergona is hitting for herself.

Sorem is pitching for Lehigh.

In the top of the first, Hughes singled and scored on a Canessa single.  Mayer walked.  Shaw hit into a force, as did Aughinbaugh.  Shaw and Aughinbaugh pulled off a double steal.  Bridget's gambling a little in this one, both with this and the defensive lineup.  Johnston singled home a run.  2 LOB.
In the bottom half, Aughinbaugh retired the side in order on a fly out and 2 GB outs.  Rams up 2-0 after 1.

In the top of the 2nd, Hughes walked but was LOB.
In the bottom half, Aughinbaugh got 2 Ks and a bunt attempt out.  Rams up 2-0 after 2.

In the top of the 3rd, Mayer singled.  Shaw tripled home a run, her 48th RBI.  Aughinbaugh grounded out.  Johnston popped up.  Quense flied out.  1 LOB (at 3b with no outs).
In their half, Aughinbaugh got a pop up, a K, and a GB out.  Rams up 3-0 after 3.

In our half of the 4th, Storm K'd looking.  Skrepenak K'd swinging.  Hughes got an infield hit off the pitcher.  Canessa grounded into a force.
In the bottom half, Aughinbaugh got 2 comebackers and a fly out.  Rams up 3-0 after 4.

In the 5th, Boyd in to pitch for Lehigh, with a 5.79 ERA.  Mayer popped up.  Shaw singled.  Aughinbaugh grounded into a force.  Johnston flied out.
In Lehigh's half, Aughinbaugh, perfect to this point, got a comebacker, a GB out, and a K.  Rams up 3-0 after 5.

In the top of the 6th in game 2 vs Lehigh, Quense flied out.  Vergona K'd looking.  Skrepenak popped up.  First time we were down in order.
In the bottom half, with Aughinbaugh having a perfect game to this point, got a pop up, Shaw then made at error at SS, breaking up the perfect game.
She then gave up a double over Skrepenak' that should have been caught.  Our makeshift defense is hurting us here.  Figueroa probably would have caught that and kept the no  hitter alive.  A sac fly scored a run.  A GB ended it.  Rams up 3-1 after 6.

In the 7th, Hughes singled, her 3rd hit.  She hasn't tried to steal since she tweaked her ankle last week against St Joe's.  Canessa popped up.  Mayer singled and broke her aluminum bat.  She stole 2b.  Shaw walked to load the bases.  Aughinbaugh blooped a single to CF, scoring a run.  Johnston K'd looking with the bases loaded.  Quense singled home 2 runs.  Vergona K'd looking as well, her 3rd K of the game.  That will get her back on the DH'd-for list.
In Lehigh's last at bat, Aughinbaugh gave up a clean leadoff single, got a GB force and 2 fly outs.

Rams win 6-1.  We are now 31-10.  We gained a split.  Lehigh always gives us quality competition.

Aughinbaugh gave up 1 unearned run on 2 hits, with 4 Ks and 0 BBs.  She's been more of our ace lately since Quense came up with a sore arm/shoulder 2 weeks ago.

We got 11 hits.  Hughes got 3 and Shaw and Mayer got 2.

Bridget usually chooses offense over defense and our lineup today was no exception.  We've got to get better defensively though, or we'll lose some close ones.

We next play UMass there Friday at 3 pm, the a double header on Saturday.
