Trinity Softball Falls To Colby Despite Poulos' Stellar Pitching Effort
Hartford, Conn. - Freshman pitcher Megan Michie (Falls Church, Va.) threw a five-hit shutout in a 1-0 Colby College victory over the Trinity College Bantams in the first game of a three-game set in Hartford this afternoon. Michie struck out five and only allowed one runner to reach scoring position after the second inning. Trinity drops to 12-17 overall and 2-8 in the NESCAC despite a stellar five-hitter in a losing effort by senior co-captain RHP Katherine Poulos (Wilton, Conn.).
Colby finally broke a scoreless tie with an unearned run in the seventh inning on an RBI triple by sophomore Kelsey Park (Presque Isle, Maine) following a Trinity error. Bantam sophomore outfielder Christina Galese (Fairfield, N.J.) led off the game with a single and managed to reach third with less than two outs after a stolen base and a groundout, but Michie struck out the next two hitters to end the threat. Trinity only managed two more runners to reach scoring position on singles and stolen bases by juniors Amelia Mostovoy (San Francisco, Calif.) and Caroline Blanchard (Norwich, Conn.) in the second and sixth innings respectively, but both times failed to capitalize. Poulos struck our four and did not walk a batter.
