CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – The BC softball team dropped the first two games of its final regular season series against Georgia Tech at Shea Field on Saturday.

In game one, five Yellow Jackets homers led the visitors to a 12-3 six inning win.  Chelsea Dimon got the start in the circle in game one – allowing 12 earned runs on nine hits over six innings pitched to fall to 10-14 on the season.  Hope Rush (13-14) hurled six innings while surrendering three earned runs on six hits.

The Jackets were lead by homers from Alysha Rudnik (2), Hope Rush, Katie Johnsky, and Courtney Ziese as a nine run outburst over the fourth and fifth innings paced Georgia Tech to a six inning win.

Jessie Daulton and CJ Chirichigno led the way for BC in game one – each recording two hits off of Rush.

In game two, the Eagles got home runs from Alana Dimaso and Maria Pandolfo but it wasn’t enough as a six-run third inning propelled the Jackets to a 10-5 victory.

Stephanie Lord (2-14) surrendered five earned runs on 12 hits over seven innings for the Eagles while Kylie Kleinschmidt (6-7) allowed four earned runs over seven innings for Georgia Tech.

DiMaso (3-for-4, HR, RBI) and Pandolfo (1-for-3, HR, 2 RBI) accounted for both Eagles’ runs in the seventh inning as the team tried to mount a comeback. Maddie Lionberger had the crucial knock in the six-run third, a three-run shot to put the Jackets up 8-1.

The Eagles will host the Yellow Jackets in the regular season finale tomorrow at 1 p.m.  BC’s senior day will honor Maria Pandolfo as part of the pre-game festivities.
