March 6, 2010

Box Score


Fullerton, Calif. – Junior Audrey Roderfeld (Vista, Calif.) went a perfect 3-for-3 with a single, double and home run to lead the Oregon State softball team (7-11) past Pacific (5-9), 7-2, on Saturday afternoon at the CSUF DiMarini Invitational.

 

Roderfeld reached on all four plate appearances, capitalizing on a catcher’s interference in her final appearance. She added a run and two RBI as the designated player.

 

Oregon State capitalized on a leadoff walk and single up the middle by freshman Ally Kutz (Mt. Vernon, Wash.) to take a 2-0 lead in the top of the second. Senior Tarah Black (Portland, Ore.) reached to start the inning before both runners advanced on a sacrifice bunt by sophomore Nikki Chandler (Houston, Texas) before Black scored on an illegal pitch by Tigers’ pitcher Shaina Brock, also moving Kutz to third. Senior Dani Chisholm (Boring, Ore.) sent one deep to left field to score Kutz, earning her second RBI of the season.

 

Roderfeld tacked on a pair more for the Beavers in the top of the fifth on a long ball over left center, scoring freshman Lea Cavestany (Pittsburg, Calif.), who singled to start the inning. And Oregon State kept it going in the top of the sixth with Kutz belting her second home run of the season over the same spot as Roderfeld with Cavestany adding a RBI double to score Chisholm, giving the Beavers a 6-0 advantage.

 

Pacific cut the lead to four in the bottom of the sixth with a pair of runs, but Oregon State answered back in the top of the seventh with one from a RBI single from Black to widen the margin back to five, which would stick as the game closed.

 

Sophomore pitcher Paige Hall (Portland, Ore.) earned the complete game win, improving to 5-10 on the season. Pacific’s Brock (3-4) was charged with the loss after throwing 5.1 innings, giving up five runs, all earned. H

 

Oregon State will face Loyola Marymount at 3:45 p.m. to close the day. Follow these games live through GameTracker or on Twitter – OregonStateSB.
