POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – The Marist softball team dropped a disappointing pair of games at home on Sunday afternoon to Siena. With regular season title and the top seed in the MAAC tournament at stake, the Saints beat the Red Foxes in a run-ruled shortened Game One contest 15-5 before taking Game Two in eight innings, 6-4.

Danielle Koltz (Chenango Bridge, N.Y.) led Marist on Senior Day as the four-year Red Fox went 5-for-7 from the plate with two doubles and two RBIs. Freshman Kyrsten Van Natta (Maplewood, N.J.) performed strongly, as well, with a .714 on-base percentage (5-for-7) and two runs scored.

GAME ONE SIENA 15 – MARIST 5 (F/6): The Red Foxes started the game out fast with a pair of runs in the first inning and chasing Siena’s starter Alyssa Lancaster after just two recorded outs. Van Natta and senior Christina Lausch (Lancaster, Pa.) earned the RBIs with a base on balls and hit by pitch, respectively.

Known as an explosive offensive team, Siena fought back in the top of the second inning by pushing seven runs across. Uncommon sloppy play by the Red Foxes aided the Saints in this frame as Marist had two errors, two hit basemen and a walk; in total Siena only had four hits in the inning.

Marist cut into Siena’s 7-2 lead in the bottom of the third when senior Sarah Carmody (Camarillo, Calif.) singled in Van Natta.

With the score now 7-3, the Red Foxes inched closer in the bottom of the fourth when Koltz doubled to right-center field before coming around in the next at bat with a Nicole Cheek (Simi Valley, Calif.) RBI single up the middle.

Siena would then register eight unanswered runs in the fifth and sixth innings with a single score in the fifth and seven in the sixth to blow the game wide open at 15-4. Again, sloppy play in the field set back the Red Foxes as only two of the eight runs allowed by relief pitcher Melanie White (Highlands Ranch, Colo.) were earned in this two-inning stretch of play.

Marist closed the scoring in the bottom of the sixth with a sacrifice fly by Koltz to score Maureen Duddy (San Mateo, Calif.).

For the game, both teams had eight hits, with Duddy and Koltz leading Marist with two each.

Emily Osterhaus (Suwanee, Ga.), Marist’s starter took the loss with one-plus innings pitched and seven runs (five earned) allowed.

 

GAME TWO SIENA 6 – MARIST 4 (F/8): In Game Two, Siena broke through onto the scoreboard first as the visitors plated three runs in the top of the third innings on three hits, a walk and one hit by pitch.

With Siena’s starting pitcher Antonia Edwards cruising and Marist’s Paige Lewis (Temecula, Calif.) settling down, the game continued into the sixth inning at 3-0 in favor of the Saints.

In the top of the sixth, Siena pushed across run number four with a mixture of a walk, Marist error and consecutive ground outs.

Down 4-0 and their shot at the number two seed in the MAAC Tournament looking the bleak, the Red Foxes rallied in the bottom of the sixth inning with a four runs. After Aly Klemmer (Hamilton, N.J.) drew an eight pitch walk and Van Natta bunted for a base hit, sophomore Janine Lalli (Eastchester, N.Y.) singled in Marist’s first run of the game. After a Lausch fly out to left field resulted in a throwing error to score Van Natta, Carmody extended the rally with an infield single to score Lalli. Koltz would drive in Marist’s final run of the inning with a double down the right field line.

The Red Foxes attempted to win it in regulation, but a pair of singles in the bottom of the seventh inning would go for naught.

In extra innings, the Saints would connect for three hits in the top of the eighth to score the two go-ahead runs.

A one-two-three, bottom of the eighth would close the book on Game Two by a 6-4 score in favor of Siena.

For the game, Marist outhit Siena 11-7, with Koltz (3-4), Klemmer (2-3) and Van Natta (2-4) all having multiple hits.

Lewis took the loss in the circle with a complete game eight-inning effort. The junior allowed six runs (five earned), while striking out one batter.

With the two results on Sunday, Siena finishes MAAC regular season play with a 12-4 record, a share of the regular season title and the number one seed in next week’s MAAC Tournament. Meanwhile, Marist falls to 10-6 in the MAAC and will coming into the double-elimination tournament as the three seed.

The Red Foxes will begin action in the tournament that will be hosted at Marist on Thursday, May 9 versus the second-seeded Fairfield Stags.
