Box Score

WORCESTER, Mass. – The Holy Cross softball team lost its first Patriot League game of the season, 1-0, at Army Saturday afternoon.

Kelly Nelson went the distance for the Crusaders allowing only one run and five hits while striking out four, but it didn’t matter as the offense was unable to manufacture any runs of its own. Bailey Chavez reached base twice on the day and recorded the team’s only hit, a single in the sixth inning.

HOW IT HAPPENED:

Second Inning:

  • Bella Jankowski drew a walk and advanced to second on a passed ball, but was stranded there.

Third:

  • Chavez reached first thanks to an error by the shortstop and she too got to second on a passed ball, but would go no further.

Fourth:

  • The Black Knights would score the game’s only run by starting the inning with a walk, moving the runner over with a sac bunt, and singling it home.
  • The Crusaders ended the inning without any more damage when they got a runner out trying to advance from first to third on a single.

Sixth:

  • Chavez began the inning with a single down the left field line, but Army got the next three outs in a row to deny Holy Cross.

ON DECK:

The Crusaders will continue its series against Army tomorrow with a doubleheader with the first game beginning at 12 pm.
