FSU, Mary Washington split doubleheader

Bobcats now 13-4; Aubel leads CAC in home runs

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. — Frostburg State used two solo home runs and a shutout from three freshmen during a 2-0 victory over Mary Washington in the opener of a doubleheader split in Capital Athletic Conference action on Saturday.

Renay Aubel and Lauren Capece both went deep, while Mary Ann Moore allowed two hits in earning her seventh victory of the season. The Bobcats lost the second game 6-4.

The doubleheader began with the Bobcats (13-4, 1-1 CAC) and the Eagles (9-14, 1-1 CAC) remaining scoreless through the first three innings.

In the top of the fourth, Aubel led off the inning with a solo home run to put the Bobcats ahead 1-0.

In the seventh, Capece also hit a solo home run for her fifth of the season and the 2-0 final.

In the second game, the Eagles answered with two runs in the bottom of the first inning and used a three-run third to take a 5-0 lead.

The Bobcats got two runs back in the fifth when Caitlin Lovend laced a single to right to score Taylor Vandegrift and Taylor Blevins, making it 5-2.

The Bobcats also scored in the sixth on Kerri O’Malley’s RBI double and former Fort Hill standout Shari Beavers’ single scored Allegany alum Bailey Ellsworth in the seventh innings but the Eagles held on to win 6-4.

Beavers finished 3-for-4 in the second contest and took the loss giving up seven hits in six innings.

Aubel is at the top of the Capital Athletic Conference leaderboard in home runs with seven and runs batted in with 28.

On Friday, the Bobcats split a doubleheader with Dickinson after winning 10 straight games, coming off a 7-0 spring break record at the Fastpitch Dreams Classic. The Bobcats took the first game 10-7 before dropping the second 12-8 in Carlisle, Pa.

Lovend gave the Bobcats a 2-0 lead with a two-run home run in the first inning. Leading 3-0 after the second, the Bobcats took control with a seven-run third on key two-run hits by O'Malley and Ellsworth.

Dickinson scored seven runs over the next five innings, including four in the sixth.

Senior Taylor Vandegrift went 2-for-2 with two runs and a walk. Moore improved to a 9-4 with the win, allowing seven hits with two strikeouts.

Frostburg State opened the second game with a five-run first inning on a three-run home run by Aubel. Beavers, Moore, O'Malley and Vandegrift each had base hits in the inning.

The Devils worked their way back with six runs over the first two innings to trail 7-6 before outscoring FSU 6-1 over the final four innings to earn the twinbill split.

Lovend went 3-for-4, Aubel totaled three RBI, and Beavers went 2-for-3 with a walk and an RBI. She suffered her second loss in 3 2/3 innings.
