The Penn softball team will look to end a four-game losing streak Sunday when it takes on the Wildcats at the Villanova Softball Complex.
Though the Wildcats (6-13) have struggled since beginning their spring season in February, the team went 8-0 at home in the fall, including a win over a Wagner squad that defeated Penn earlier this month.
Last night in its most recent action, Villanova split a doubleheader with Monmouth. In the first game, a 4-0 Monmouth victory, the Wildcats struggled to bring runners home despite recording nine hits. However, the team recovered in game two, scoring two runs in the bottom of the sixth en route to a 2-1 victory.
Meanwhile, the Quakers (3-10) dropped both games of a doubleheader at Lehigh on Wednesday. After a 2-0 loss in the first game, Penn managed to break an offensive slump that has plagued them since their win over St. Joseph’s two weeks ago. But sophomore pitcher Cailyn Hennessy gave up 10 runs in the teams’ second game, bringing Penn’s road record to 2-9.
The Quakers will look to take advantage of a Wildcats team that will enter Sunday’s contest fresh off of a doubleheader against Lehigh tomorrow.
The Red and Blue will rely heavily on sophomore hurler Chelsea Ott, who currently has a team-leading 1.86 earned-run average over 37.2 innings pitched.
Villanova’s ace, sophomore Molly Manning, has accrued a 2.68 ERA.Comments powered by Disqus
