Softball shut out by JU in game one of ASUN Tournament

DELAND, Fla. – Game one of the ASUN Tournament did not goes as expected for the Lipscomb softball team as the fourth-seeded Lady Bisons fell 7-0 to No. 5 Jacksonville on Wednesday afternoon at Patricia Wilson Field on the campus of Stetson University.

Lipscomb (32-16) struggled early and Jacksonville (27-27) took advantage, building on a lead that the Dolphins never looked back on.

Jacksonville scored four runs in the first four innings, scoring once in the second and three in the fourth.

In the second, Jordan Daniels walked, advanced on an error, stole third, and scored on a second error.

Serena Quintana blasted a three-run home run in the fourth, scoring Kenzie Griffith and Makenzie Buss to put JU ahead 4-0.

In the fifth, Hannah Roberts singled up the middle, scoring Heather Roberts for the Dolphins.

JU added two more runs in the seventh. Madison Ragan doubled to score Danielle Baker, and Daniels scored Heather Roberts on a sacrifice fly.

Junior Mandy Jordan (15-8) lasted four innings for Lipscomb, allowing only one hit, but giving up four runs and six walks. She also threw three strikeouts.

Sophomore Chloe Yeager replaced Jordan to the tune of two runs and three walks allowed in three innings of work.

Alyssa Bilodeau (16-11) went the distance for Jacksonville, allowing four hits and two walks in the shutout.

 

QUICK HITS:

  • Sophomore Hannah DeVault, junior Jordan Fortel, junior Sarah Higgins, and freshman Caitlin Turner earned Lipscomb’s only hits.
  • DeVault also walked, making her the only Lady Bison to reach base twice.
  • Junior Khayla Green’s team-best four-game hit streak came to an end in the loss. However, she extended her team-high reached-base streak to seven games.
  • Fortel now has the longest hit streak on the team at four games.
  • The Lady Bisons left seven runners on base.
  • Junior Destinee Brewer robbed a home run in the top of the third with an over-the-wall catch.

 

NEXT UP: Lipscomb will take on No. 6 Stetson tomorrow at 2 p.m. in an elimination game.
