Hall Leads Softball to Shutout Victory over Boise State

March 12, 2010

Box Score

Corvallis, Ore. – Sophomore Paige Hall (Portland, Ore.) pitched her first complete game shutout of the season, adding a two-run homer in the first inning to lead the Oregon State softball team to a 4-0 win over Boise State on Friday afternoon. The game was called after six complete innings of work due to inclement weather.


The Beavers collected seven hits, led by freshman Lea Cavestany’s (Pittsburg, Calif.) 2-for-3 outing. Junior McKenna Lowe (Tustin, Calif.) was a perfect 1-for-1, while four others collected one hit each.


The Beavers took a 2-0 lead on Hall’s first career home run, shot to dead center field, scoring Cavestany, who reached on a leadoff single.


Cavestany tacked on another run in the bottom of the fifth on a single to right center, scoring senior Tarah Black (Portland, Ore.) from second to give the Beavers a 3-0 lead after five full.


Oregon State added another run in the bottom of the sixth on an RBI blooper single down the right field line by senior Dani Chisholm (Boring, Ore.) to score freshman Kilee Lippincott (Lake Chelan, Wash.) from third, who pinch ran for junior Audrey Roderfeld (Vista, Calif.), who led off the inning with a single.


But Boise State came out firing in the top of the seventh. Ashley Viers-Gordillo led off being hit by pitch, followed by three straight singles to score a run before Megan Harvey cleared the bases with a shot over left center to give the Broncos the 5-4 edge.


Hall earned the complete game shutout, scattering three hits with seven strikeouts, improving to 7-10 on the season. Boise State’s Allie Crump was charged with the loss after throwing five innings, giving up seven hits and all four runs earned.
