Saint Mary’s Pulls Out Sweep of Albion

ALBION, MI – The Saint Mary’s softball team took a pair of MIAA games from Albion on Tuesday afternoon. The Belles won the first game 5-2 before taking the nightcap 7-6 in nine innings.

Saint Mary’s ups its record to 16-7 overall and 6-2 in MIAA play while Albion falls to 12-11 and 3-7 respectively.

In the first game the Belles rode the hot bat of Ashley Peterson. The sophomore posted a 4-for-4 performance with three doubles and a homerun. She scored two runs and drove in another. Her 10 total bases is a season high for any Saint Mary’s player in one game.

Calli Davison went all seven innings on the mount to pick up the win. Davison struck out two and scattered nine hits.

In the second game, the Belles jumped out to 3-1 edge after the third inning but the Britons chipped and were eventually able to tie the score at 4-4 with a run in the top of the seventh inning. The two team traded run in the eighth inning and Saint Mary’s won the game by scoring two runs in the bottom of the ninth. Cathy Kurczak scored the tying run on a fielding error with one out and Maureen scored the winning run with two outs on a wild pitch.

A foursome of players (Peterson, Kurczak, McKenna Corrigan and Ashley Fusaro) posted two-hit games for the Belles. Peterson and Kurczak also scored two runs to aid in the winning cause.
