POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – After a disappointing setback in the first game of their home doubleheader on Thursday afternoon, the Marist Red Foxes came out in their second game versus Colgate and put forth a complete team effort as junior Aly Klemmer (Hamilton, N.J.) led the offense and sophomore Janine Lalli (Eastchester, N.Y.) headed up the pitching. The Raiders (13-21) won Game One 3-1, while the Red Foxes (16-20) took Game Two 7-2.

With her Game Two three-run home run and an overall 2-for-3 showing at the plate, Klemmer was one of six Red Foxes on the afternoon with multiple hits. Senior Danielle Koltz (Chenango Bridge, N.Y.) and junior Alyssa Zahka (Lexington, Mass.) rounded out Marist’s top offensive performers with three hits and an RBI each.

In the circle, starters Janine Lalli and Emily Osterhaus (Suwanee, Ga.) each tossed complete games, with Lalli earning the win in Game Two; both hurlers held Colgate to five hits.

GAME ONE, COLGATE 3 – MARIST 1: The offensive action started fast in Game One as the Raiders opened with a three-spot on the scoreboard in the top of the first inning. Two extra-base hits, a triple and a home run, helped manufacture the trio of runs.

In the bottom of the frame, the host Red Foxes responded with a run of their own, as Alyssa Zahka drove in leadoff hitter Maureen Duddy (San Mateo, Calif.) with a two-out single to center field.

With the score 3-1, both pitchers, Osterhaus for Marist and Courtney O’Connell for Colgate, held their opposition off the scoreboard for the remainder of the game.

Colgate challenged in the fourth, but had a runner erased at home with a strong throw in by Kyrsten Van Natta (Maplewood, N.J.).

In the final four innings, Marist would threaten with runners reaching second base each time, but the Raiders would walk the tight rope and keep the Red Foxes stranded. For the game, Marist left eight runners on base.

Osterhaus took the loss for Marist with a complete game, five-hitter. The senior was charged with three earned runs, while striking out two Raiders. The opposing hurler, O’Connell, got the victory with four hits and one unearned run allowed in seven complete innings pitched.

GAME TWO, MARIST 7 – COLGATE 2: Looking to avenge their frustrating showing on the offensive side of things in Game One, the Red Foxes jumped out to a quick 5-0 lead in Game Two after plating runs in both the second and third innings.

With Lalli cruising in the circle with consecutive three-up, three-down innings, the Red Foxes came out in the bottom of the second and manufactured two runs on the strength of three hits and a Raider error. After leading off the inning with an infield single, Van Natta would come in to the score the game’s first run when Colleen McWilliams (Monrovia, Calif.) hit a grounder to first base that Colgate’s defender bobbled away. The next batter, Maureen Duddy would drive in Sarah Carmody (Camarillo, Calif.) with a single to center field.

After another three-up, three-down inning by Lalli, Marist started off the bottom of the third with back-to-back singles by Nicole Cheek (Simi Valley, Calif.) and Zahka. Following an out, Klemmer would step to the plate and get a hold of a Brigit Ieuter pitch and launch a home run high and deep over the left field wall.

Colgate cut into the 5-0 score when Mariel Schlaefer broke up Lalli’s perfect game, as the 12th batter of the contest, when she homered out to center field in the fourth.

Another Raider run in the top of the fifth inning would tighten the game to a 5-2 margin.

Marist plated the game’s final two runs in the bottom of the fifth when McWilliams drove in Lalli with an RBI ground out to second base. With two outs and Carmody on third base, Koltz singled through the middle of the infield to make it 7-2.

Freshman Alex Hraniotis (Montgomery, N.Y.) nearly started another scoring drive for Marist in the bottom of the sixth inning as she scorched a pinch hitter single past Colgate’s shortstop. Klemmer followed her base hit up two batters later with an infield single to put runners on first and second. The Raiders’ reliever Megan Carnase stranded both to keep the score at 7-2.

Of note, that single was the first of Hraniotis’ collegiate career.

For the game, Marist outhit Colgate 12-5, with Koltz (3-3), Zahka (2-3) and Klemmer (2-3) all registered multiple hits.

Lalli got the win as she allowed two runs and struck out four Raiders.

The Red Foxes will be back in conference action on Saturday at home. Beginning at 12:00 p.m., Marist will host Iona in a doubleheader.
