Towson, MD - In both games this afternoon Brown fell behind after the first inning and was unable to recover, as the Bears fell 1-0 and 3-1 to the Towson Tigers this afternoon's doubleheader. Freshman Kristin Schindler recorded the loss in game one, but pitched a solid six innings, facing 25 batters and only allowing three hits in the loss.
After a one-two-three top half of the first inning for Brown, Towson cashed in on a lead-off single that was later brought in on two out single for the 1-0 lead. The 1-0 lead was all Towson needed as Brown was only able to muster one hit, which came off the bat of freshman Kaitlyn Laabs in the fourth inning.
In the second game of the day Brown found themselves down 2-0 after two innings after lead off doubles in the first and second inning crossed the plate for the Tigers. The Bears were held to no hits in the first four innings, until freshman Kelsey Wilson hit a double to left field to put Brown's first runner on with no outs. Sophomore Amy Baxter moved Wilson to third, when she grounded out putting a runner in scoring position with one out. The Bears were unable to bring in Wilson as sophomore Linnea Anderson grounded out and senior Sarah Wilson struck out ending the inning and the threat.
Brown was finally able to break onto the scoreboard in the following inning when junior Liz Anderson drew a one out walk and was moved to second by a single from the bat of senior Mary Seid. Junior Melissa Ota drove in the lone run on a double to center field, cutting the deficit to one run with six and a half innings in the book.
Towson pushed its lead back to two runs when the Tigers cashed in on a one out double in the bottom half of the sixth. Freshman Michelle Moses recorded the loss for the Bears allowing three runs on six hits in 5.1 innings of work.
The Bears will look to get back into the win column when they take on UMBC in a doubleheader match-up Thursday March 30, afternoon as the first pitch will be thrown at 1:30 p.m.
