Virginia Women's Softball Sweeps Penn State In a Doubleheader
TAMPA, Fla. - Tish Tablan and Corinne Good both hit game-winning sacrifice flies as Virginia swept a doubleheader from Penn State with a pair of 3-2 decisions. It was the Cavaliers first doubleheader sweep since taking two games from Maryland on April 10, 1996.
Beth Crimi and Corinne Good had RBI singles, as Virginia entered extra-innings for the first time this season. In the ninth inning, after Cory Bolkan was placed on second base, Christina Chiappe sacrificed Bolkan to third before Tablan hit her game-winning sac-fly to dead center field. In the bottom of the ninth, Fox continued her impressive showing by retiring the three Nittany Lion batters without allowing the placed runner to score. With the win, Fox evened her season-mark at 2-2.
Game Two saw the Cavs score three times in the second inning, with Corinne Good's sac-fly providing the difference in the outcome. Chrissy Quinn pitched out of jams in every inning but two allowing just two runs along the way. In PSU's seventh, Quinn recorded a key strikeout with the tying run on third and just one out.
