Sagehens Fall to Nationally Ranked Redlands

By Jamie Goldberg

CLAREMONT, CA - For five innings, the Sagehens looked to be on par with nationally ranked Redlands University, but they could not maintain momentum and fell 7-1 to the Bulldogs

P-P took an early lead in the bottom of the first when Arianna Roach and Caitlyn Hynes started off the rally with back-to-back singles. This set the stage for Brianna Marcantoni who drilled an RBI single to center to give the Sagehens an early 1-0 lead. Redlands retaliated with a homerun in the second to tie the game up 1-1. Carolyn Cross took the mound for the Sagehens and gave up only one run through five innings. Yet, in the sixth a two run homerun put the Bulldogs ahead. Redlands rallied for four more runs in the inning to put the game out of reach. P-P could not recover and fell 7-1.
