The Marist softball team (16-20) will be in action this weekend with a pair of MAAC doubleheaders. Beginning on Saturday at 12 p.m. the Red Foxes host rival Iona for a twinbill. On Sunday, the Red Foxes will face off Rider in its second doubleheader; the first pitch of Game One versus the Broncs is scheduled for 12 p.m.

Sunday’s doubleheader will be played in conjunction with the Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation as the team’s Breast Cancer Awareness Pink Out Doubleheader.  Miles of Hope will have a merchandise table and all proceeds from the contest will benefit the Hudson River Valley-based non-profit organization.

This Past Week:  Though posting a 1-3 record in non-conference play this past week, the Red Foxes are hitting the weekend in high gear after defeating Colgate in Game Two on Thursday by a 7-2 score. In a pair of 3-1 setbacks at Columbia on Tuesday Aly Klemmer led the offensive effort with a 3-for-6 showing.  Nicole Cheek joined Klemmer as the only two players with multiple hits on the day as she went 2-for-6.

On Thursday, Marist split a doubleheader with Colgate. Klemmer again led the Red Foxes offensively and sophomore Janine Lalli got the complete game win in the second game.  Marist fell in the first game 3-1 though threatened throughout with runners reaching second base in each of the final four innings of the contest.

During the four games, Marist hit .245 as a team, led by Klemmer’s .559 average (5-for-9). In the circle, the Red Foxes posted a 2.45 ERA with none of the four pitchers, who saw time, allowing more than three runs scored. Lalli threw a team-high nine innings and led the staff with six strikeouts.

Scouting Iona: The Gaels (8-30, 4-4 MAAC), who are the three-time defending MAAC champions have struggled this season as they have been plagued by the loss of a standout 2012 senior class, as well the season-ending injury loss of Eileen McCann, a preseason All-MAAC honoree. In conference play, Iona has found more success as it has split doubleheaders with Fairfield and Rider, while sweeping Siena on the road.

Offensively, senior Beth Kann leads the Gaels with a .303 batting average, 37 hits and six home runs, while she is second on the team with 20 RBIs. Sophomore Allison Hand tops the team with eight doubles and 23 RBIs. As a team, they bat .263.

In the circle, sophomore Carly Argyle has appeared in 32 of the team’s 38 games, while posting a team-best 4.27 ERA in 128 innings pitched. Though striking out a conference-high 92 batters, she also tops the MAAC in walks (81), wild pitches (21), illegal pitches (14) and hit batters (22). Iona’s pitching staff has a combined team ERA of 5.67 with a .330 opponents’ batting average allowed.

Scouting Rider: The Broncs currently sit at 7-32 overall and 3-5 in the MAAC.  Winners of just three of their last 10 games, the Broncs have made those wins count as they have all come in conference play with single victories over Saint Peter’s, Canisius and Iona.

Offensively, the three-headed attack of Kehli Washington (.383 average, 20 SBs), Dana Sensi (.357, 5 HRs, 25 RBIs) and Amanda Irving (.353, 6 2Bs, 9 RBIs) lead the Broncs, who post a .258 batting average as a team.

In the circle, Rider has struggled mightily with injuries as freshman Ali Meagher has been forced to pitch every inning of the team’s past five games. Overall in 2013, Meagher is 1-12 with a 4.59 ERA and .350 opponents’ batting average in 74.2 innings pitched;  42 of her 91 runs allowed this season have been unearned.
