Bower's Grand Slam and Adamo's Home Run Help Softball Sweep Hilbert

Bower's Grand Slam and Adamo's Home Run Help Softball Sweep Hilbert

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The D’Youville softball team came out swinging in a non-conference doubleheader against Hilbert, taking both games 24-2 and 9-0 at Dobson Field Monday afternoon. The pair of wins over their former conference rivals moves the Saints to 14-4 this season.

GAME ONE NOTES 

The Saints fell behind right away in the opener as Hilbert opened the game with two runs in the top of the first inning. An RBI single from senior Carly Milleville got the Saints on the board in the home half of the first and a fielding error later in the inning allowed Milleville to score the game-tying run. 

The D’Youville offense erupted for 14 runs on eight hits in the second inning. A pair of home runs, a grand slam from junior catcher Jamie Bower and then a two-run home run from freshman Gianna Adamo, highlighted the scoring in the big inning. 

The Saints added four runs apiece in the fourth and fifth innings to build onto their lead and force the mercy rule after five innings. 

IN THE CIRCLE 

Freshman Cassie Crerar (3-1) pitched innings in relief of sophomore starter Lauren Booth. Crerar fanned five batters and allowed no earned runs on two hits. Sophomore Jill Weber tossed a scoreless fifth inning for the Saints. 

AT THE PLATE 

Four Saints hit safely multiple times in Monday’s route … D’Youville was led by sophomore Ava Miller (3-for-3, 2 RBI), freshman Bryanna Dewey (3-for-3, RBI, 2B), Adamo (3-for-5, 4 RBI, HR) … 13 different Saints hit safely in the opener 

GAME TWO NOTES 

D’Youville took advantage of another big second inning in the nightcap. The Saints plated five runs in the second, highlighted by an RBI double from Miller and RBI bunt singles from freshman Emily Przybysz and senior Maddy Pepke.  

D’Youville tacked on three more runs in the bottom of the third inning when Adamo continued her big day with a bases-clearing, three-run triple that gave the Saints a 9-0 cushion. 

IN THE CIRCLE 

Freshman Sarah Parzych (6-2) got the starting nod in game two. Parzych struck out six Hawks and allowed no earned runs on one hit while tossing all five innings in the circle. 

AT THE PLATE 

Three Saints hit safely multiple times in the game two triumph, led by Adamo (2-for-3, 3 RBI), Przybysz (2-for-2, RBI), and Pepke (2-for-3, RBI).
