Pennsylvania Pitching Tandem Helps Cavs Sweep 49ers

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Stacey Zagol (Berwyn, Pa.) pitched a two-hitter in the opener and Christina Quinn (Buckingham, Pa.) allowed just two runs in five innings in the nightcap as Virginia swept a South Atlantic Softball Association doubleheader from UNC-Charlotte by the scores of 2-0 and 4-2. Mariruth Graham (Wall, N.J.) keyed the offense in the opener with a two-run single and Julie Amaon (Houston, Texas) did the same in the second game with an RBI double to help Virginia sweep its fourth doubleheader of the season.

Zagol (6-6) overpowered the 49ers in the opener as she allowed just two baserunners while fanning seven batters. All 21 of the Cavs putouts came from the Virginia infield. Brooks Bower's double and Janine Repole's single to rightfield were the only UNC-Charlotte hits to leave the infield. Virginia (15-14, 8-4 SASA) provided Zagol with the only offense she would need in the first inning. The Cavaliers loaded the bases with two singles and a walk before Graham (1x3, 2 RBI) came up with a clutch two-out single to rightfield.

Quinn pitched well in relief of Kristi Fox in the second game. Once again, the Cavalier bats sprung to life early in the game to provide a lead. Christina Chiappe (1x2, RBI, BB) and Beth Crimi (2x3, RBI) both provided RBI hits in the second and third innings, respectively, and Virginia led 2-0. In the fourth, Amaon (1x2, RBI, R) doubled home Graham (1x1, 2 BB, R), who had led off the inning with single, and Virginia led 3-0. Two outs later Amy Peay (1x2, RBI, R) singled up the middle to score Amaon and finish the Virginia scoring.

UNC-Charlotte (29-21, 3-3 SASA) strung together three hits tin the fifth to cut the deficit to 4-2. Repole doubled to right center field to score Sonya Stinson (3x4, R) and Ashley Kelly (2x3, R). But Quinn settled down and induced a pair of groundouts to shortstop to slip out of the jam. The 49ers stranded two more runners in the seventh before Quinn (5-4) shut the door.

Virginia hosts the Cavalier Classic this weekend at The Park (schedule below). Admission is free.
