4.14.13 SOFTBALL: Cavs Fall Twice to ODU

Softball, 2013-04-14

(North Canton, OH) Walsh (15-14, 6-11) dropped both ends of a GLIAC doubleheader to Ohio Dominican University (16-20-1, 11-3) today by the scores of 7-1 and 4-0. The Cavs return to action on Tuesday, at home, when they host Wayne State University in a GLIAC doubleheader at 2 pm.

Game one looked like a classic pitchers battle between Walsh’s Casi Rohr (So., Massillon, OH/Perry/Toledo) and ODU’s Rachael Stanzel, until the Panthers scored three unearned runs in the top of the fifth inning to take a 3-0 lead. Walsh answered in the bottom of the inning when Fallon Gawry (Fr., Chardon, OH/HS)) homered to left.  It was the first collegiate homerun for Gawry. ODU came right back however, and tallied three runs in the sixth inning and a single run in the seventh. The loss evened Rohr’s record at 7-7.

Despite fanning eight in the nightcap, Erin Ebert (Sr., Jeromesville, OH/Hillsdale) was touched for three runs in the third inning and one in the sixth in a 4-0 loss. Ebert is now 6-6. Walsh mustered just three hits in game two, and combined for just seven hits in the doubleheader.
