Bulldogs Sweep Bears in Final Ivy League Doubleheader

April 27, 2008

New Haven, CT - The Brown softball (8-26, 3-17 Ivy) team ended the 2008 Ivy League season with two, 3-1, losses to Yale on Dewitt Family Field on Sunday afternoon. Junior Kelsey Wilson (Monterey, CA) led the team offensively, going four-for-six from the plate, including one RBI.

Although the game was scoreless for the first three innings, Yale tallied three runs in the bottom of the fourth. The Bulldogs tallied their first run when Huddleston reached on a fielder's choice, and made it to third base after an error on Brown's right fielder to score Megan Enyeart. Then, Allie Canulli sent a single to right field to score Yale's second unearned run. The third run came in after a walk, as junior Michelle Moses (Cooper City, FL) came in to relieve sophomore Jessica Iwasaki (Cupertino, CA)

Brown bounced back in the fifth, scoring a run when freshman Maria Macrina (Sherrill, NY) singled to right field to bring in sophomore Andrea Browne (Vineland, NJ) who arrived on first from a walk.

Iwasaki pitched 3.2 innings for the Bears, giving up three runs and four hits. Moses pitched 2.1 innings, shutting Yale down the final two innings.

The second game was very similar to the first, except this time Yale scored three runs in the third inning. Courtney Blachford started out the inning with a single to center field, followed up with a single to right field by Aracelis Torres to bring in the first run. Then, Enyeart doubled to center field to score the next two, putting the Bulldogs ahead, 3-0.

Brown tallied its only run of the game in the fourth, as Macrina sparked the offense with a single to center field. Wilson then singled to left field to score Macrina, but that was as close as Bruno would come, losing 3-1.

Freshman Emily Chaddock (Laguna Niguel, CA) pitched five innings in game two, giving up three runs and eight hits. Kristie Chin (Katy, TX) came in for relief, pitching one inning.

Brown will end the 2008 season on Tuesday, April 29, when it travels to Providence College to take on the Friars for one game beginning at 4:00 p.m.
