Virginia Splits Doubleheader with UNC-Greensboro
GREENSBORO, N.C. - The University of Virginia softball team faced UNC-Greensboro in a doubleheader, winning the first game 2-0 before dropping the second contest by a score of 4-2.
In game one, Stacey Zagol continued her outstanding early season pitching by throwing seven scoreless innings. She recorded six strikeouts while scattering three hits and one walk. The Cavaliers did all of their scoring in the fifth inning. Corinne Good got the ball rolling for Virginia when she singled to center field. Lori Reese singled to left, advancing Good to second. After Beth Crimi flied out to center field, Reese stole second base and Good stole third base with two outs. They both scored after Stacy Holmes reached first base on a error by UNC-Greensboro 2B Lara Long. That would be all the scoring Virginia would need to pull out the win.
Reese led the Virginia offense in game one, gathering two hits, stealing a base and scoring a run. Good and Crimi each recorded a single in the win.
In the nightcap, Virginia fell behind early when UNC-Greensboro took an early 1-0 lead in the first inning. The Spartans jumped out to a 4-0 lead after posting three more runs in the fourth inning. The Cavaliers answered right back in the fifth inning when Reese and Crimi scored to make it a 4-2 game. That would be as close as the Cavaliers would get the remainder of the contest.
Christina Quinn pitched five innings for Virginia, striking out four batters in the loss.
With the split doubleheader, Virginia's record is (2-2) overall, UNC-Greensboro moves to (2-1). The Cavaliers will return to home action when they host UMBC in a doubleheader on Tuesday, (Feb. 17). Game one is scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m. and will be played at The Park.
