Splitting in the Sun

(Photo by Mark Philbrick/BYU Photo)

TAMPA -- The BYU softball team opened play at the USF Underarmour Showcase by splitting Friday’s doubleheader with a 4-0 loss to Hofstra followed by a 6-0 win over Indiana. With the split the Cougars are 15-12 on the season.

“We didn’t come out ready in the first game, but the second game was better,” BYU head coach Gordon Eakin said. “We got back to the level we have been playing at and Christie Zinanti did a great job from the circle.”

Zinanti received the win for BYU after pitching the complete-game shutout. She allowed seven hits, matching the hits with seven strikeouts.

Junior Andrea Ramirez led the Cougars from the plate with two home runs for a total of four RBI, a season-high for the slugger.

A four-run first inning gave BYU an early advantage over the Hoosiers. With two runners on and two outs in the bottom of the first Junior Angeline Quiocho hit an RBI to put BYU’s first runner on the board. Ramirez followed with a three-run homer that scored both Quiocho and Jessica Purcell.

The Cougars added another run when sophomore Caschjen Davis hit a ground ball to bring in Quiocho in the third inning. With two outs in the fifth Ramirez added an insurance run with a solo homer to left field.

In the first game of the Cougars’ doubleheader the Cougar offense was lagging in the hard fight against Hofstra. The Cougars had chances to bring in runs early but struggled to capitalize, leaving several runners in scoring position.

Sophomore hurler Paige Affleck dueled for BYU from the circle in the game that stayed scoreless until the bottom of the sixth. A walk and a bunt single put two runners on for Hofstra. Both runners scored on a series of hits.

Two more runs came through on a defensive error at second base, giving Hofstra a 4-0 advantage.

The Cougars continue play at the Showcase on Saturday when they face Ball State at 1 p.m. ET, followed by one game against Florida Gulf Coast.
