Yale Heads Back North For Stony Brook Invitational This Weekend
DELAND, Fla. – Stetson’s Patricia Wilson Field has been named the top softball facility in the nation twice this decade. It appears the field could get some postseason use this spring. Amanda Lindsey had two hits, including a three-run home run, to lead Stetson to an 8-0 victory over Yale on Monday. The victory was the Hatters’ 15th of the young season.
Nicole Peltz pitched a complete game for Stetson, allowing only one hit, an infield single to Kayla Kuretich leading off the fifth inning. Ashley Sloan was the only other Bulldog to reach base. She walked leading off the game.
The Hatters jumped on the board in the first inning when Katelyn Perna walked with the bases loaded.
Stetson added another run in the second and then scored three times in the third with the help of a pair of Yale errors.
A nifty double play turned by shortstop Meg Johnson helped keep the Hatters off the scoreboard in the fourth inning, but Lindsey’s three-run homer to centerfield ended the game in the sixth.
Kuretich went the distance in the circle for the Bulldogs and struck out three.
Yale (0-5) heads to the Stony Brook Invitational on Long Island this weekend. Action gets under on Friday when the Bulldogs play Stony Brook at 11 a.m. and Quinnipiac at 3 p.m.
