Virginia Women's Softball Take One and Give One in Tampa
TAMPA, Fla. -- Stacy Holmes had two hits and four RBI as Virginia defeated Indiana State, 6-1, in the first game of a doubleheader. Indiana State rebounded in Game Two as Stephanie Frankenberger collected three hits and a RBI in the 6-4 victory over UVa.
Holmes hit a three-run homer to left-centerfield in the fourth inning of the opener to erase a 1-0 Indiana State lead. In the fifth, Lori Reese and Beth Crimi had back-to-back RBI singles as Virginia won their second straight game. Lori Reese went 3-for-4 to help UVa tally it largest run output of the season. Pitcher Chrissy Quinn won for the first time since the season opener.
The Sycamores put a halt to the Cavs winning streak in Game Two. UVa did mount a rally in the seventh, courtesy of an RBI double off the bat of Holmes and some outstanding hustle from Lori Reese. With runners on second and third, Beth Crimi grounded out to shortstop scoring Amy Peay. But Reese used her speed and hustle to score all the way from second base to cut the ISU lead to 6-4. But Mary Beth Peterson closed the door as she retired the next two UVa batters.
