Salisbury defeats FSU in CAC title game

SALISBURY — Frostburg State surrendered one run in the fourth inning to third-ranked Salisbury, but its offense was held in check in their loss to the Sea Gulls in the Capital Athletic Conference Tournament finals on Saturday afternoon.

The third-seeded Bobcats (29-11) and top-seeded Salisbury (35-2) have met in the tournament finals in each of the last three seasons, with Salisbury winning all three titles. The win hands the Sea Gulls the CAC’s automatic bid to the NCAA tournament, while Frostburg will await a possible at large bid.

Salisbury’s Carly Read drove in the game’s only run in the fourth inning. With one out, Read hit a sacrifice fly to center field that scored Katie Sebbane for the 1-0 advantage. Sebbane led off twith a double to left center.

Frostburg State had its best chance in the sixth frame. Senior Taylor Vandegrift singled up the middle to lead off the inning and advanced to second on a Bailey Ellsworth’s sacrifice bunt. Vandegrift later advanced to the third, while senior Shari Beavers and Renay Aubel were both walked to load the bases. However, Salisbury’s Kathryn Larson was brought in to pitch and got the final out.

Vandegrift finished with two of the Bobcats’ three hits. Aubel had an infield single in the fourth for the other hit.

Earlier, FSU’s Nicole Bradford limited Mary Washington to three earned runs on five hits for an 8-5 win in the semifinal.

Freshman Taylor Blevins powered Frostburg at the plate going 3 for 4 with four RBIs and a run scored.

Beavers went 3-for-3, scoring three runs and getting an RBI on a bases-loaded walk. Caitlin Lovend doubled home Vandegrift for the game’s first run in the bottom of the first inning.
