Trinity Softball Pummels Smith
Northampton, Mass. -The Smith College softball team was limited to four hits in a 13-0 loss to the visiting Trinity College Bantams this afternoon. Trinity improves to 12-6 with its third straight win, while Smith drops to 1-20.
After Kayla Kiers set the Bantams out in order in the opening frame, Smith had its best chance to score in the bottom of the inning. After Tessa Clark reached on a fielder's choice, Kaitlyn O'Brien smacked a single to left center that put runners on first and second with two out, but Chelsie Biluck struck out to end the inning. Trinity senior starter Kristen Anderson (West Haven, Conn.) then set down 13 consecutive Pioneers, while the Bantams got all the runs they would need on a two-RBI single by sophomore OF Amelia Mostovoy (San Francisco, Calif.) in the second, and made it 3-0 when freshman CF Christina Galese (Fairfield, N.J.) reached on an error and scored. A three-run homer from fellow rookie Abigail Ostrom (Carlisle, Mass.) increased the Bantam lead to 6-0 in the fifth, and Trintiy put the game out of reach by sending 12 batters to the plate in the seventh and scoring seven runs. Kiers struck out seven in a complete game effort in the circle for Smith, and Anderson struck out five and allowed four hits.
