Nauts take game one from Riptide

By:
Lowell, Mass. - After a three game home series versus the New England Riptide in Montclair, the New York/New Jersey Juggernaut (12-7) headed to Lowell, Massachusetts today to face the New England Riptide (8-11). The June 20th-22nd series between the two teams ended up in two-extra innings games, with a total of 46 (the equivalent to almost 7 softball games) innings played. The Juggernaut ended up taking two out of three games of the series before heading to Martin Field for the first time.

Amanda Scott (6-2) and Leigh Ann Ellis (2-3) were on the mound tonight to dual it out. With no surprise, the teams went into extra innings again. Through seven scoreless innings, both pitchers managed shutouts. Scott finished the game with 9 strike outs, 0 walks, and excellent defense from the mound, picking up her league high sixth win of the season.

The Nauts came close in the bottom of the eighth when catcher Courtney Scott beat out an infield hit to the shortstop. After Venus Taylor’s sacrifice bunt, pinch runner, Sarah Hershman, advanced to second base. Lindsey Collins entered the game to pinch hit for Jaclyn Pasquerella, but popped out to center fielder LaDonia Hughes. Ellis then struck out Carri Leto to end the Juggernaut threat.

In the top of the ninth the Nauts were at it again. With two outs, shortstop Lyndsey Klein smacked a double to left center. With Lisa Iancin up, a passed ball by Jessica Allister advanced Klein to third base, which was the first runner to reach third base all game. With a 3-2 count, Iancin ripped a ball down the third base line for a double, scoring Klein (RBI). That is Iancin’s third game winning hit in the past week.

In the bottom of the ninth, Jewett ripped a line drive to third base and Pasquerella went airborne to help her pitcher Scott get the win.

Amanda Scott, the Nauts ace, improves to 6-2 on the season with a league leading .62 E.R.A. Sister Courtney Scott (1-for-4) was Amanda's battery mate tonight.
