Penn State Softball Splits Double-Header Against Delaware

Penn State softball (10-11) finished off its spring break travels with a double-header against Delaware Friday.

After their game against Canisius was canceled due to forecasted inclement weather, the Nittany Lions came out 1-1 against the Blue Hens to end the Delaware Invitational.

Game One

Penn State started the two-game series with a 1-0 win over the Blue Hens.

Through the first four innings, neither team was able to produce offensively until Cassie Lindmark hit a one-run home run in the bottom of the fourth. A few more hits came from both sides, but no runs scored.

Bailey Parshall secured the win from the circle with her fifth shutout of the season, while Liana Jones had a diving catch in left field and the rest of the defense was able to stay tight as well.

Game Two

The Nittany Lions earned their split on the day when they drop the second game with a score of 6-4. The game was competitive from both sides, but Penn State was unable to come out on top.

Penn State started off strong with a home run in the top of the first from Ally Kurland, but Delaware quickly fought back and evened the score 1-1 in its first at-bat.

The Blue Hens continued to produce at the plate when they loaded the bases in the bottom of the second, and two doubles made the score 5-1. Penn State chipped away the next inning and earned one more.

Lindmark extended her hot streak at the plate with a double in the sixth to score Melody Coombs and Kaitlyn Morrison. She then made her trip around the bases before the end of the inning and brought Penn State within one run.

Delaware scored one more in the sixth and came away with a 6-4 win.

What’s Next?

The Nittany Lions will travel to Pittsburgh to face Pitt at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16.
