SAN DIEGO - In their first day of action at the San Diego Classic II the Marist softball team was defeated twice as Bryant defeated it 5-3 in the opening game of the day, while UNLV eeked out a 1-0 victory over the Red Foxes. In 13 innings of competition, Marist allowed its opponents to score in only one inning per game, but it would hold up in both cases for the Bulldogs and Rebels.

The freshmen duo of California natives Maureen Duddy (San Mateo, Calif.) and Nicole Cheek (Simi Valley, Calif.) led the Red Fox offense on Day 1 with three hits a piece. Senior pitcher Emily Osterhaus (Suwanee, Ga.) gave Marist seven strong innings in the circle versus UNLV to lead the pitching staff.

GAME 1, BRYANT 5 - MARIST 3:

Marist saw its four game win streak come to an end in its first game of the San Diego Classic II on Friday. A five-run fifth inning by Bryant would be the Red Foxes' undoing.

Marist jumped out to an early 2-0 lead over the Bulldogs with one swing of the bat by freshman Nicole Cheek. With two outs and Maureen Duddy  on second base, Cheek launched her third homer in as many games out of the right-center field walk.

Red Foxes starting pitcher Paige Lewis (Temecula, Calif.) cruised through the early innings of the contest, setting down the first eight batters of the game in order.

With the score 2-0 in favor of Marist, the Bulldogs would mount a five-run rally in the bottom of the fifth inning. A four batter stretch with two singles and two doubles would help manufacture the go-ahead runs.

After a scoreless sixth inning, the Red Foxes would attempt their final comeback in the top of the seventh inning. With one out, Duddy would reach base with an infield single to the pitcher. The next batter, Danielle Koltz (Chenango Bridge, N.Y.) would drive her in four pitches later with a double to left field. Cheek looked to keep the rally going with another infield single, this one to third base. Alyssa Zahka (Lexington, Mass.) would load the bases in the next at bat with the third infield single of the inning. With the bases loaded and one out, Bryant's pitcher, Brittany Hart would retire the next two batters to hold on for the 5-3 decision.

For the game, Bryant outhit Marist 9-8; three Red Foxes recorded two hits, Duddy (2-4), Cheek (2-4) and Zahka (2-4).

Lewis took the loss in the circle, her first of 2013, with a final line of 4.2 innings pitched, five earned runs, eight hits allowed and three strikeouts. Sophomore Janine Lalli (Eastchester, N.Y.) finished the game with 1.1 innings pitched and one hit allowed.

GAME 2, UNLV 1 - MARIST 0:

In the Red Foxes' second contest of the day, pitching was the name of the game, as both Marist's Emily Osterhaus and UNLV's Francesca Foti starred in the circle.

Though Marist pressed early in the first inning with a pair of hits by Duddy and Cheek, the teams would combine for four scoreless frames.

After allowing just one hit and one walk over the first four innings versus the Rebels, Osterhaus was tagged for the first and only run of the game as Pauline Monreal would lead off with a double and come around to score two batters later on a Heather Harrison single to center field.

Marist would have batters on base in each of the final three innings, but Foti and the Rebels would foil every one of the Red Foxes' comeback attempts to secure the hard-fought 1-0 win.

For the game, the Red Foxes were outhit by the Rebels 5-3, with Duddy, Cheek and Joelle Zahka (Lexington, Mass.) registering base hits. Freshman Colleen McWilliams (Monrovia, Calif.) drew two walks versus Foti.

Osterhaus was the hard-luck loser with a complete game five-hitter. The senior hurler allowed just the one earned run and struck out one. She drops her 2013 season ERA to 1.40.

For the doubleheader, Marist hit .208 (11-53) and had a .300 (18-70) on-base percentage. Duddy posted the highest on-base percentage at .571 (4-7).

Osterhaus, Lalli and Lewis combined for a 3.23 ERA and five strikeouts in 13 innings pitched.

Marist will continue action at the San Diego Classic II on Saturday with games versus San Diego (12 p.m. EST) and San Jose State (5 p.m. EST).
