The Cabrini Softball team took on the Eastern University Eagles in a doubleheader on Monday for their first away games of the season. The Lady Cavs win streak came to a halt after losing both games to the Eagles.

Things looked promising early in the first inning as freshman Amber Dietrich continued her hot hitting, homering to right center field; her fourth of the year.

The Eagles had an answer in the second inning as Kelsey Clever homered to center field to notch the game at one.

The Eagles took control of the game keeping Cabrini scoreless until the sixth inning. Eastern pushed their lead to 5-1 with two runs in the third, an unearned run in the fourth. Clever continued her strong day with a two run RBI single in the fifth inning.

Despite the dry spell the Cavaliers continued to fight. Dietrich and Freshman Lindsay Savar both singled to first base and were eventually advanced by a ground out.

Senior Stephanie Diegel hit a sacrifice fly, which scored Dietrich. Soon after Junior Becca Miles hit an RBI single which brought Savar home, cutting Eastern’s lead to 6-3.

Cabrini had life heading into the seventh inning but went down with three straight outs.

Dietrich led the team with two hits out of the team’s four. One of which was for a home run and tied for a team leading one RBI in the loss.

The Lady Cavs looked to rebound in their second game of the double header. Starting off strong, the Cavs scored the three runs in the first inning.

To open the inning Savar found first base off a single. Sophomore Kaitlyn Cooper contributed with her first hit of the day, which was a double advancing Savar to third.

Diegel stepped to the plate and managed to hit a two-run RBI single to left center. Freshman Taylor Gallagher finished the job with an RBI single to score Diegel giving the Cavs a 3-0 Lead.

The blue and white held the Eagles to one run in the first inning as Emily Houck hit an RBI single to score Erica Pyla-Gibson.

Cabrini continued their first game woes as they were scoreless this time until the seventh inning. Eastern scored a run in the second inning and three more in the third.

They continued as Kasey Williams homered to left field in the fourth inning and Ashton Tomlinson was walked which sent Williams home to give the Eagles a 7-3 lead in the sixth inning.

Once again Cabrini tried battling back with Cooper getting an RBI double to score Savar and Diegel also hitting an RBI to score Cooper. The two runs cut the deficit to 7-5 but that would be all that Cabrini could muster up for the game.

Diegel lead the team in hits with four. Savar was in close second with three hits of her won. Diegel also lead the team in RBI’s with three in the game.

Freshman Pitcher Taylor Gallagher gave up six earned runs on 12 hits while striking out two batters.

With two straight losses the Cavaliers drop to 4-9 on the season.

Cabrini will look to snap rebound against Keystone College (3-7, 0-2, CSAC) in a Double Header on Wednesday April 2nd at Keystone College.

The first pitch is scheduled at 3 p.m.
