RIC TAKES TWO FROM CURRY; UPS RECORD TO 13-7
Sitnik & Ponte Shine in Anchorwomen Victories

Providence, RIóRhode Island College swept a doubleheader from Curry College in collegiate in softball action on Thursday afternoon. The Anchorwomen took game one in their last at bat, 6-5, and downed the Colonels, 9-1, in five innings in the second contest. RIC is now 13-7, while Curry falls to 14-11.

 

RIC senior right fielder Andree Sitnik (Lincoln, RI) plated sophomore third baseman Krystal Bilek (Fitchburg, MA) with the game-winning run in the bottom of the seventh in the first tilt. The Colonels, who were down, 5-3, coming into their last at bat, tied the contest up with two runs in the top half of the frame. Despite being touched up for 11 hits, junior pitcher Nicole Riley (North Providence, RI) went the distance, hurling seven innings and striking out five to earn her ninth (9-2) victory of the season. Bilek went 2-for-3 with two runs scored and a double. Junior catcher Kristyn Alexander (East Wareham, MA) went 2-for-3 with one run scored, one RBI and a double. Curry freshman designated player Alysia Dimuzio (Quincy, MA) went 4-for-4 with one run scored, three RBI and bashed her sixth homer of the year in game one. Junior pitcher Kim Sturgis (Saugus, MA) took the loss (8-6).

 

The Anchorwomen scored seven runs in the fourth and fifth innings to win game two. Freshman pitcher Justine Burgess (Uxbridge, MA) earned her fourth win (4-5), allowing just three hits and one run, while striking out four. Senior center fielder Megan Ponte (Wakefield, RI) went 2-for-3 with one run scored, one RBI and hit her first homer of the season. Sitnik had another strong game, going 1-for-2 with three runs scored and an RBI. Dimuzio homered for the Colonels, her seventh, and sophomore pitcher Stacy Berard (Bridgewater, MA) took the loss (0-2)
