CLINTON, N.Y - The Wesleyan softball team lost a pitching duel on Sunday afternoon against Hamilton in NESCAC action, 1-0.

With the loss, the Cardinals dropped to 9-14 overall and 1-5 in league play. The Continentals improved to 18-6 and 2-4.


  • In the bottom of the third, Caitlin Berreitter hit a one-out triple to left field. After an infield pop out on the next at-bat, Ashleah Yzaguirre hit a grounder to third base, Brenna Monroe bobbled the ball briefly but was able to throw out Yzaguirre in time to end the inning and keep the runner stranded on third.
  • Emily Fraser led off with a walk in the top of the fourth. She then reached second on a sacrifice bunt and third on an infield ground out to the pitcher. With two outs, Kendall Searcy brought her home with a single through the left side.
  • Wesleyan was held hitless until the top of the sixth, when Sciarappa hit a two-out double off the wall in left field.
  • The Cardinals would get one more hit in the top of the seventh but were unable to tie the game as the Continentals held on for the win.


  • Lauren Gaffney-Gomez recorded Wesleyan's second hit with a single in the seventh. Danielle Rinaldi started in the circle and threw four innings, allowing one run on four hits with just one walk.
