Softball Drops Two to Lipscomb
NASHVILLE, TENN. - - Despite its best efforts, Belmont softball couldn't get anything brewing against Lipscomb Wednesday, dropping an afternoon doubleheader to the Bisons.
In game one, Belmont pitching ace freshman Devon Schmidt (Greenbrier, Tenn.) went head-to-head against Lipscomb star hurler Whitney Kiihnl.
Schmidt would provide the Bruins four and two-thirds respectable innings before giving way to junior Julie Harmon (Brentwood, Tenn.)
However, offense would be hard to come by against Kiihnl, who surrendered a lone hit to sophomore Ashley Byers (Westerville, Ohio) in earning a 28th victory in 30 decisions this season.
In game two, Belmont produced four hits in the first three innings, but were unable to bring any base runners home. However, in the bottom of the fourth, a leadoff single from junior Ashley Smith (Helena, Ala.) and a double from Harmon allowed Belmont to get on the board via a sacrifice fly from senior Sara Bentley (Springfield, Tenn.)
Belmont had seven hits in total in game two, including 2-for-2 from junior Kelley Cash (Hudson, Ohio).
The Bruins (10-42, 3-15) close regular season play Saturday at Campbell.
