  • CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – The Rutgers University softball team (0-15) dropped two games on day two of the Cavalier Classic on Saturday, March 19, falling to host Virginia by a score of 12-3 and Bowling Green 6-1.

    In the first game of the day, senior Jenny Card (Miami, FL) earned her first colligate start, allowing six hits and six earned runs in 4.0 innings of action. Senior Helen Smith (Tucson, AZ) continued her hitting streak, ending the first inning with a solo homerun to centerfield. Smith was a triple short of hitting for the cycle, as she finished the game 3-for-3 with three runs batted in. Sophomore Maggie Geraldi (Russell, IL) also had a productive outing at the plate for the Scarlet Knights, going 2-for-2 with a walk and a run scored.

    Rutgers took an early 1-0 lead in the third inning of game two before Bowling Green scored six runs over the next four innings to pull away for the 6-1 victory. Freshman Lauren Tardiff (Manchester, NJ) was inserted as a pinch runner for freshman Mallory Miller (Anaheim, CA), who led off the inning with a walk. Tardiff made it around the bases to third on two consecutive wild pitches by the Falcon’s Emily Gouge. Two batters later, senior Stephanie Johannsen (Penn Valley, CA) drove in RU’s only run of the game with a single to leftfield.

    The Scarlet Knights will complete play at the Cavalier Classic on Sunday, March 20, as they take on Toledo at 9:00 a.m. The winner that contest will advance to face Virginia in the semi-final game at 11:00 a.m.
