leave a comment »

Stony Brook 3, UMBC 1

Stephanie Weigman had a great outing with just 1 ER off four hits, but she gave up two more unearned runs whole Stony Brook’s pitchers gave up just three hits and one run which was in the seventh inning.

Albany 5, UMBC 1

Lauren Brummell had two hits from the top of the order, but UMBC manages just two more hits and only one run in the game.

Weigman allowed four runs off eight hits in the first five innings before the great Danes got the best of Amanda Fefel two as they crossed the plate with her pitching.

With the Loss UMBC is out, but one thing is for sure, watch out for them nxt year. Weigman is going to be amazing and Lauren Brummell is getting to be one of the best players in the conference. If the rest of the team progresses at the same rate they could be a serious contender next year.

Two Shutouts Clinch Softball Spot in Post Season, Brummell and Weigman Break Records

leave a comment »

UMBC got a little help to get into the conference tournament. While they swept Hartford, if Maine would have won both of their games UMCB would have been forced to win tomorrow, but Maine dropped a game and UMBC will see the post season.

Stephanie Weigman broke the all-time strikeout record with 19 on the day including her 423rd which was good enough to pass Crystal Ray’s nine-year-old record. Weigman now has 425 career strikeouts and she is just a sophomore.

Brummell recorded her 20th double of the season which topped Dana Shepard’s 19 doubles in 2007.

GAME 1: UMBC 9, Hartford 0

Weigman got the complete game shutout in five innings with just one hit allowed and nine strikeouts. Lauren O’Malley, Krista Kearns, and Julia Culotta all got two hits. Culotta hit a three run home run in the third inning in the 9-0 win.

GAME 2: UMBC 8, Hartford 0

Weigman pitched the second game as well and got her second shutout. He allowed just two hits for three hits in 11 innings with 19 strikeouts.

UMBC Started off the a big first two innings getting four in the first and three in the second before getting their final run in the sixth inning.

Brummell started the game with a single. The next at bat Amanda Fefel hit a double for the RBI. After Emily Thompson hit a double to get two on, Malorie Weller hit a three run home run for go up 4-0.

The retrievers didn’t back down after that with four more runs in the game and the shutout to clinch a play-off spot.

Softball vs. Delware Doube Header Cancelled

leave a comment »

Due to rain early today the field was left flooded and there was no make up date. The game gives UMBC a little more rest before taking on Hartford which they need to sweep to get in the tournament safety.

Softball Drops 1-0 Pitchers Dual to Top Ranked Stony Brook

leave a comment »

Going 1-2 with top the top team in the conference isn’t bad. While they would have liked to get more one more win to move up in the rankings most teams did not beat Stony Brook and it is one win some teams did not have.

Stephanie Weigman pitched a six inning complete game allowing just one run off two hits while striking out five batters but the offense was not their and did not produce any runs. In Fact only the top four in the lineup recorded one hit each while everybody else was shut out.

Softball Splits with Stony Brook in Saturday Double-Header

leave a comment »

GAME 1: UMBC 5, Stony Brook 2

Stephanie Weigman had a rare short game with just two innings played, but Amanda Fefel came in for a solid five innings of work allowing just two runs with eight strikeouts for the win.

Emily Thompson lead UMBC with a 1-3 game with one run and 3 RBI’s after a three run home run in the third inning to help put UMBC up 5-0, which remained for the 5-2 win.

GAME 2: Stony Brook 3, UMBC 1

It’s sad when your pitcher only gives up three runs and you don’t win. Weigman pitched the complete game allowing just three runs, none of them earned, but UMBc was saddled with the 3-1 loss. Between not hitting well and four errors UMBC took themselves out of this game. The one run came in the third inning when Lauren Brummell crosses the plate after a deep single by Amanda Page.
