Fisher throws second career no-hitter
Mauro ties school record with five-hit game, gets GW RBI single
MANSFIELD, Pa. -- Shavaun Fisher threw her second career no-hitter to lead ninth-ranked Bloomsburg to a 9-0, five-inning win against Mansfield in game one of a doubleheader on Friday.
In game two, Lacy Mauro tied a school record with five hits and drove in the game-winning run to lead the Huskies to a 6-5, 10-inning win versus the Mountaineers.
The Huskies got off to a quick start with two runs in the first inning. Mauro singled to lead off the game and came around to score on Sam Pientack's two-run homer, her eighth of the season.
Bloomsburg would stretch the lead to 5-0 after manufacturing three runs in the second. Lori Neyhard walked to lead off the inning and went to third on a double by Jenna Hampton. Emily Young hit a sacrifice fly scoring Neyhard with Hampton moving to third on the play. Raychelle Kuhns then followed with a single, scoring Hampton, and Kuhns would later score on a fielder's choice with the bases loaded.
The Huskies tacked on three more runs in the third. Neyhard reached on a fielder's choice and moved to second when Hampton reached on an error. After Emily Young's single loaded the bases, Kuhns drove in Neyhard with an RBI single. Following another fielder's choice, Danielle Lazorka hit a two-run single to push the lead to 8-0.
Neyahrd scored a ninth run when she came in on an error by Mansfield.
While the Huskies were piling up runs, Fisher was mowing down the Mountaineers. She fanned the first three that she faced and four of the first six. Fisher then ended the game striking out the final three batters of the game.
Mansfield took the early 1-0 lead in game two when Nicole Yost hit a solo homer to lead off the second inning. The Huskies tied the score in the top of the fourth when Neyahrd singled and later scored on a Hampton single.
Mansfield regained the lead with two runs in the bottom of the fourth. Yost walked and Chara Dixon singled to put runners on first and second. Danielle Long then tripled home both runners for a 3-1 lead.
The Huskies answered with three runs in the top of the fifth to take a 4-3 lead. Sam Pientack contributed an RBI single with another run scoring on an error. Mandy Leach brought home the third run of the inning with a sac fly.
Again, the Mountaineers didn't wait long to regain the lead. Kate Pratt launched a two-run homer. But the Huskies rallied once more in the sixth with Mauro's ninth homer of the season, a solo shot.
In the seventh inning both teams left two runners stranded to send the game to extra innings. Neither team could capitalize on scoring opportunities in the eighth and ninth innings.
With pinch-runner Mandy Black starting at second base for the Huskies, Mauro singled to center scoring Black with the go-ahead run.
Mansfield also started the bottom of the 10th with a runner at second. Fisher, working in relief of Cait Paine, got a popup and two strikeouts to seal the win for the Huskies.
Mauro's five hits tied a school record set twice before, once by Kate Denneny in 1986 and Jen Lefever in 1994.
