Casey at the Bat Doesn’t Strike Out This Time; Geneva Split with Waynesburg 2-6, 6-4

Casey at the Bat

Waynesburg, Pa.  – Waynesburg opened the Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC) doubleheader on Tuesday, April 11 stinging the visiting Geneva College Golden Tornadoes 6-2. Geneva responded in game two for the split; 6-4. The 1-1 outing moved Geneva’s overall record to 14-12, 3-5 in the PAC.

Waynesburg’s back-to-back three-run innings in the third and fourth were too much for the Golden Tornadoes in game one. Geneva was able to tab a run in the second and sixth innings while racking up six hits but fell short to the Yellow Jacket’s 11 hits.

To open game two, both teams scored a pair of runs in the first. Waynesburg took a 4-2 lead in the third inning after posting a two-run rally. Geneva quickly answered in the top of the fourth.

Ericka Hess’ contagious bat allowed Geneva to match and retake the lead in the fourth. Hess stepped up to bat with two outs. Her single down the left field line placed her at first for Geneva’s leadoff hitter, Haley Sainato. Sainato singled advancing Hess to third base. Clara Sevy’s infield dinger loaded the bases for Casey Farkasovsky. Unlike the poem, Casey at the bat, Farkasovsky didn’t strike out this time. Instead, she smacked one for a two-RBI single tying the game 4-4. Lucia Fee ultimately tabbed the winning RBI with a single to score Sevy; lifting Geneva 5-4 over Waynesburg.

April Lude recorded an unearned run in the fifth inning for Geneva’s sixth run. The game was called early due to lighting in the top of the seventh.

Geneva will return to action at Conrady Field on Monday, April 17 for home field advantage against rival and PAC opponent Grove City. The Golden Tornadoes and Wolverines will begin the doubleheader at 3:30 p.m.
