Softball Suffers Sweep To Emmanuel

BOSTON - Looking to get back on the winning track, the Regis (Mass.) softball team came up empty at Emmanuel in a twinbill sweep to the Saints in Great Northeast Athletic Conference action Friday evening at Roberto Clemente Field. Allie Petillo (West Sayville, N.Y.) suffered the loss in both games to fall to 1-5 on the year in the circle.

Game 1

  • Junior pitcher Olivia Burgos (Newington, Conn. scattered four hits over five innings of work to pick up her 10th victory of the season, also going 2-for-2 at the plate with a pair of extra base hits to become just the third player in program history to record 20+ extra base hits in a season.

  • The Pride opened the scoring in the top of the first on an RBI double to center by senior Alexa Nejaime (Sandisfield, Mass.) to drive in sophomore Ellery Rasmussen.

  • Emmanuel responded with four runs in the first and put the game away with four more runs in the second to build an early 8-1 lead fueled by a two-run homer by sophomore centerfielder Sarah Hoisl (West Hartford, Conn.).

  • Burgos belted her team-leading sixth home run of the season in the third to make it 9-1 before junior catcher Casey Sheehan (Medway, Mass.) got into the action with a solo blast in the fourth to account for the 10-1 final.

Game 2

  • Freshman hurler Mikaela Montemagni (Chicopee, Mass.) pitched six innings of two-hit ball to power the Saints to their fourth consecutive GNAC sweep, allowing just one run while registering six strikeouts to improve to 3-2 on the year.

  • The Saints scored in every inning getting two in the first and two in the second to go ahead 4-0 after two.

  • Runs in the third and fourth on RBI singles from Burgos and freshman second basemen Meaghan Price (Corning, N.Y.) bumped the lead to 6-0 through four innings of play.

  • Regis got on the board in the fifth as Nejaime opened the stanza with a triple before coming in to score on a sacrifice fly by junior Brianna Napoleone (Medford, Mass.) on a close play at the plate to make it 6-1.

  • Emmanuel posted two more runs in the fifth to increase the lead to 8-1 including an RBI double down the left field line by freshman Megan Long (Greenville, R.I.).

  • Sophomore outfielder Yuleska Ramirez-Tejeda (South Boston, Mass.) delivered the walk-off win in the sixth with an RBI double to right centerfield to drive in the ninth run and make it a 9-1 final.
