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 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.

Softball Sweeps Binghamton with 6-1 Win

leave a comment »

Let me give you a sense of how good Stephanie Weigman is. The softball team has 31 wins and 20 came from Weigman. Against Binghamton she gave up just two hits and the one run was a home run in the fourth inning.

The bats were there for UMBC. They scored two runs in each of the first two innings for a 4-0 lead after the first two innings. Then in the sixth they added two more insurance runs as Binghamton scored one runs.

Weigman pitched all seven innings and allowed just two hits with 11 strikeouts. Amanda Page and Amanda Fefel each had a 1-3 day with a two run home run in the game. Lauren Brummell went 2-4 with a run and two RBI’s.

With the win UMBC is now 906 in the conference and still completely alive in the playoff hunt as they are tied with Maine for fourth place and just a half game back against Boston U.

Softball Loses Heartbreaker to Albany, 4-3

leave a comment »

Stephanie Weigman struck out eight batters in 7.1 innings but was tallies with the loss after giving up four runs (three earned) in the eight inning game.

The heartbreaking part wasn’t that Albany won on a walk-off two run home run in the eight inning, it was that is shouldn’t have gotten into extra innings because the one error committed by UMBC lead to the deciding run. Without that run UMBc would have won 2-1 in seven innings.

Down 2-0 in the seventh inning Emily Thompson ties the game with a two run home run to eventually send the game into extra innings. Then an inning later Lauren Brummell got the go ahead solo shot in the eighth, but the two run home run came at the bottom of the inning for the UMBC loss.

Fefel and Weigman shut down Morgan State Allowing Just Two Hit in Double Header Sweep

leave a comment »

GAME 1: UMBC 2, Morgan State 0

Once again the pitching came up huge for softball. Amanda Fefel allowed just one hit in her shutout with 10 strikeouts in seven innings. But what an asset to the team she is. Not only did she dominate on the mound but she lead the team with a 2-3 day with both runs and an RBI (obviously she hit a home run which was in the third inning).

Game 2: UMBC 6, Morgan State 1

As Fefel did, Weigman also had a dominate day on the mound. She allowed just one hit but with an error and two walked Morgan State recorded one run in the game. Weigman very well may go down as one of the best pitchers in UMBC history. She’s just a sophomore and after an eight striekout game she was already hit the 300 strikeout plateau and is third all time and is on pace to blow away the record of 422 strikeouts in a career.

This time Lauren Brummell did most of the work in the batters box having a 2-2 day with three runs. Amanda Barker, Lauren O’Malley, and Jessica Vetok accounted for the other three runs.
