RIVERDALE, N.Y. – After a disappointing 7-2 setback to the start the day, the Marist softball team came out in its second game and outscored the host Manhattan Jaspers to the tune of 8-0 for an important MAAC victory.

Offensively, freshman Colleen McWilliams (Monrovia, Calif.) led the Red Foxes with a three RBIs. Seniors Danielle Koltz (Chenango Bridge, N.Y.) and Christina Lausch (Lancaster, Pa.) aided the rookie with a home run and two RBIs from Koltz and a pair of doubles and an RBI from Lausch.

In the circle, junior Paige Lewis (Temecula, Calif.) threw her second shutout of the season as she held the Jaspers off of the scoreboard with a final line of seven innings pitched, six hits allowed and two strikeouts.

GAME ONE, MANHATTAN 7 – MARIST 2: The Red Foxes started Game One off fast as they plated two first inning runs. After freshman Maureen Duddy (San Mateo, Calif.) led off with an infield single and consecutive walks by Alyssa Zahka (Lexington, Mass.) and Aly Klemmer (Hamilton, N.J.) loaded the bases, freshman Kyrsten Van Natta (Maplewood, N.J.) drove in her team’s first run with a single up the middle. Zahka would later score the game’s second run on a Kelsi Redding wild pitch.

In one tough inning, the bottom of the second, the complexion of Game One was drastically changed as the Jaspers pushed across five runs, four of which came off of the bat of Katie Bowen in a grand slam.

Marist threatened with runners in scoring position in each of the next two innings, but in each instance, the Red Foxes were stranded.

Manhattan stretched its lead out to the final margin of 7-2 with two unearned runs in the bottom of the sixth inning.

For the game, Manhattan outhit Marist 9-4.

In the circle, starting pitcher Emily Osterhaus (Suwanee, Ga.) took the loss as she threw a complete six innings and allowed five earned runs, while striking out two Jaspers.

GAME TWO, MARIST 8 – MANHATTAN 0: Realizing the importance of getting at least a win out of today’s doubleheader to keep pace in the competitive MAAC postseason race, the Red Foxes took nothing for granted and scored three goals in the top of the second inning.

After Zahka and Klemmer singled and Van Natta walked to load the bases, sophomore Janine Lalli (Eastchester, N.Y.) started the run-scoring with an RBI infield single. McWilliams singled in the next run with a base hit through the right side before Koltz capped the scoring with a single to center field.      

Lewis pitched her way out of a bases loaded situation in the bottom of the third to keep the score 3-0 in favor of the Red Foxes.

The margin would quickly double in the top of the fourth when Lalli drove in Van Natta with a single to left field. Both Lalli and Lausch would score in the next at bat when McWilliams doubled to the center field.

Once again, the Jaspers would threaten by loading the bases in the bottom of the fourth, and once again the Red Foxes would survive as Klemmer turned an unassisted double play at first and Manhattan’s Jen Keller popped out to shortstop.

With the score 6-0 going into the sixth, Marist extended its lead out to 8-0 with single runs in the sixth and seventh innings. A solo home run by Koltz in the sixth led off the scoring before Lausch doubled in Klemmer with the second of back-to-back doubles in the seventh.

For the game, Marist outhit Manhattan 12-6 with six Red Foxes: McWilliams (2-3), Klemmer (2-3), Koltz (2-4), Zahka (2-4), Lausch (2-4) and Lalli (2-4) all registering two hits.

In the circle, Lewis evened her 2013 record at 5-5 with the complete game shutout.

With the split Marist’s record goes to 22-22 on the season and 8-4 in the MAAC, while Manhattan goes to 18-22 and 8-6 in conference.

The Red Foxes will be back in action tomorrow with their final road MAAC series of the regular season with a twinbill in Jersey City, N.J. versus the Saint Peter’s Peacocks. The first pitch of Game One is slated for 12 p.m.
