Puget Sound drops two one-run games against Eagles

KIRKLAND, Washington – The Puget Sound softball team lost a couple of devastating games at Northwest Wednesday evening, both by a 2-1 margin.

Maddy Garcia tossed a complete game in the first contest, allowing just a pair of earned runs through six innings. The Loggers trailed by two runs entering the fifth inning, but they pushed a run across the plate during the stanza. Maddie Colombo led off by reaching on an error, and Jessica Shimoda moved her into scoring position with a sac bunt.

Mackensie Pearlstein's groundout allowed Colombo to take third, and Abby Brondos knocked her in with a clutch two-out base hit.

During the second game, the Loggers took a 1-0 lead in the fourth again. Once again, Colombo led off by reaching base, this time with a single to left-center. A sac bunt and an error allowed Colombo to get to third, and Mckenna Johnson provided the RBI single for Puget Sound.

The Eagles scored both of their runs in the sixth inning.

Kelsie Sullivan threw a complete game for the Loggers, striking out five in six innings of work.

The Loggers return to their Northwest Conference schedule by hosting Lewis & Clark for four games, March 30-31.
