Softball Drops 11-5 Decision to Maine
April 11, 2013
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – Jean Stevens hit two home runs and knocked in six RBI for the Black Bears as the Maine defeated the BC softball team 11-5 at Shea Field on Thursday afternoon.
Freshman Stephanie Lord fell to 0-6 this season as she allowed 10 earned runs on 12 hits over seven innings. Beth Spoehr (3-7) tallied the win as she tossed four innings while allowing three earned runs on six hits. Alexis Bogdanovich hurled three innings of relief for Maine – allowing two earned runs in the seventh inning.
Stevens’ two-run homers in both the first and third innings staked the Black Bears to an early 4-0 lead. The Eagles got a run back in the third as Megan Cooley scored from third on a wild pitch but their rally was extinguished as Spoehr got Speer to fly out to center to end the inning.
Maine added four more runs in the fourth on the strength of Kristen Koslosky’s two-run double and Stevens’ two-run single – her sixth RBI of the afternoon. Jessie Daulton’s third homer of the season and Annie Sommers’ RBI double down the left field line in the fourth trimmed the Black Bears lead to 8-3.
With Maine holding a 10-3 lead in the seventh, Koslosky’s second hit of the day brought home Maine’s 11th and final run as they took an 11-3 lead. Alana DiMaso’s two-run shot to right center cut the deficit to 11-5 but the Eagles couldn’t get any closer as they dropped their second straight game at Shea Field. DiMaso finished the day 3-for-4 with a HR and two RBI for Boston College.
The Eagles will host ACC foe Virginia Tech on Saturday in a doubleheader starting at 1 p.m.
Team Records: Boston College (10-23, 1-8 ACC); Maine (6-29, 2-4 America East).
