MILFORD, N.H. – Junior Ari DeJesus (Providence, R.I.) recorded the first RBI-triple of her collegiate career on Monday evening, but it was all the Gators could manage as they were one-hit by Daniel Webster, 11-2, in a five-inning clash at the Hampshire Dome.
Pine Manor drops to 0-2 with the loss, while the Eagles continue the best start in program history improving to 4-0.
Junior Anastasia Walker (West Springfield, Mass.) went the distance in the circle for the Gators allowing just three hits, but taking the loss (0-2). She also picked up three strikeouts.
A trio of Eagle pitchers combined to one-hit the Gators. Abigail Goslin (Wrenthem, Mass.) went three innings to start in the circle earning a no-decision allowing no hits while striking out four and walking one. Alexis Pavelock (Saratoga Springs, N.Y.) allowed one earned run and the lone hit, while Sarah Durocher (Keene, N.H.) picked up the win (3-0) in relief over two innings, striking out four and walking two.
The Eagles got the scoring started in the first with a big five-run inning as they capitalized on a number of walks and couple of defensive miscues by the Gators. They also added single runs in the second and the third.
After Chardonai Rose (Fairfield, Calif.) walked to start the fourth, DeJesus would deliver Pine Manor's only hit of the night, an RBI-triple to right-center. She would score on the next play as Cathryn White (Douglas, Mass.) reached on error.
The hosts tacked on three more runs, including an RBI-single by Kayla Free (Quincy, Mass.), in the top of the fifth to finish off the scoring.
The Eagles are now off until Friday as they are tentatively set to host New England College.
Pine Manor visits Rivier on Friday at 3 p.m.
