RIC Splits Doubleheader With Plymouth State
Eichler Fires Complete Game Shutout in Game One

Providence, RIóRhode Island College split a doubleheader with Little East rival Plymouth State in collegiate softball action on Friday afternoon. The Anchorwomen blanked the Panthers, 3-0, in the opener, but dropped game two, 2-0. RIC goes to 21-13 overall and 10-2 in the Little East, while Plymouth State moves to 12-16 overall and 4-8 in conference action.

 

RIC freshman starting pitcher Heidi Eichler (Madison, CT) threw a complete game shutout in game one, allowing three hits, while striking out six to improve her record to 10-7 on the season. Senior third baseman Amy Machado (Newport, RI) delivered the big blow of the game for the Anchorwomen, blasting a three-run homerun over the left center field fence in the bottom of the sixth inning. The homerun was her second of the season. Junior pitcher Rose Eaton (Concord, NH) took the loss, dropping her overall season record to 5-6.

 

 In game two, Plymouth State pitcher Kim Jeffs (Stoughton, MA) shutdown the RIC offense, tossing a complete game shutout of her own, giving up four hits while striking out eight in the Panthers, 2-0, victory over the Anchorwomen. PSU freshman second baseman Danielle Normand (Rumford, RI) hit a two-RBI double in the top of the fourth inning to give the Panthers the lead. RIC starting pitcher Nicole Riley (North Providence, RI) took the loss and is now 9-5 on the season. Jeffs improves her overall record to 7-10.
