Box Score 1 | Box Score 2

CARLISLE, Pa. – The Franklin & Marshall softball team closed out the 2010 season splitting a Centennial Conference (CC) double header with Dickinson Saturday. The Diplomats won the first game 4-3 but the Red Devils retaliated for a 9-1 win in game two. F&M finished the season with a record of 10-18, 8-10 CC, and the Red Devils improved to 15-16, 8-6 CC.

In game one, Amanda Schellaci's triple to right center followed by a home plate touch on a catcher's error gave the Diplomats the one-run advantage F&M needed for the win.

Neither squad could get on the board in the first two frames, but Dickinson tallied three runs in the top of the third to take a 3-0 lead. The Diplomats were held scoreless in the third, but knotted the game in the bottom of the fourth.

Caitlin Elfring hit a ground out RBI with the bases loaded to send Schellaci home. With Danielle Murphy on third and Megan Pauley on second, Alyssa Yackle slammed a two RBI double to center field to tie the score 3-3.

After quiet fifth and sixth innings, Schellaci's run in the top of the seventh gave the Diplomats a one-run edge for the eventual 4-3 win.

Liz Chudzik earned the win, limiting the Red Devils to just four hits.

Liz Barry took the loss, allowing eight hits and fanning three batters.

Game two was scoreless for both teams through the second inning until F&M notched a run in the top of the third. Murphy smacked a homer to left field, marking her third homerun of the year.

The Red Devils responded with six runs in the bottom of the third, to put Dickinson on top 6-1. Keeping the Diplomats scoreless and limiting them to three hits, the Red Devils added another run in the fifth and two in the sixth to earn a 9-1 victory.

Chudzik was saddled with the loss, allowing three hits and six runs.

Allison Jordan earned the win, allowing three hits and retiring nine batters.
