  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – The Rutgers University softball team (3-31; 1-7 BIG EAST) dropped a pair of games to St. John’s (17-22-1; 4-4 BIG EAST) on Saturday, April 16 at the RU Softball Complex, falling 9-0 in game one and 9-3 in game two.

    St. John’s got off to a quick start, scoring seven runs in the first inning, including a three-run homerun to centerfield by the Red Storm’s Leigh Carlson. The Scarlet Knights rallied several times over the course of the game, but were unable to cut the lead, losing game one 9-0.

    The Red Storm opened game two with a 4-0 lead and in the second, senior Jenny Card (Miami, FL) helped RU get on the board with a solo homerun to centerfield, her fourth of the season, making the score 4-1.

    St. John’s extended its lead, scoring one run in the third, but RU responded in the fifth scoring two, cutting the deficit to 5-2. Freshman Mallory Miller (Anaheim, CA) earned a trip to first base after taking an errant pitch to the helmet. Freshman Xaymara Rodriguez (Patterson, NJ) and sophomore Kristin Madoch (Glenview, IL) followed with back-to-back walks to load the bases, while senior Marisa Orsogna (Edison, NJ), who replaced Miller on the bases, eventually scored from third on a wild pitch. Senior Stephanie Johannsen (Penn Valley, CA), drove in RU’s second run of the inning with a double to right-center, plating Rodriguez.

    St. John’s added three more insurance runs in the sixth to pull away with the 9-3 victory.

    The Scarlet Knights will return to the field on Sunday, April 17 to take on intrastate rival and BIG EAST opponent Seton Hall at 12:00 p.m. at the Rutgers Softball Complex. Prior to game one, RU will honor its four graduating seniors – Helen Smith (Tucson, AZ), Card, Johannsen and Orsogna.
