Fair Pitches Eagles to Split at Haverford


Jess Figueroa knocked in the game-winner with an opposite field single in the sixth inning of game one.

HAVERFORD,Pa.- With Janelle Fair going the distance Eastern University Softball scratched out three runs in the top of the sixth inning to claim a 3-0 win in game one of a doubleheader at No. 22 Haverford College. The Fords took game two 12-1.

Fair worked efficiently through the first four innings. She allowed an infield single with two outs in the second and a Haverford hitter reached second on a two-base error with one out in the fourth. Fair struck out the next hitter and Kaley Snyder made a nice play to track down the slicing fly ball to end the inning.

The Eastern had only two hits against Haverford starter Emily Winsett through five innings. Snyder led off the sixth with a double to right. After Jessi Baker moved her to third with a bunt, Jessica Figueroa hit a 1-2 pitch over a drawn in infield for a 1-0 lead and her third RBI of the year. Emily Houck walked to bring Fair to the plate. The senior star pulled an inside pitch through the hole to double the Eastern edge. 

With two runs in, the Eagles turned to trickery for an important insurance run. Fair drew a throw to second and Houck stole home. Fair advanced to second after the Fords threw to try to get Houck.

The Fords put runners on in both the final two innings, but Fair shut the door. for her fourth win of the year.

With two league doubleheaders this weekend, the Eastern staff elected not to throw Fair in the second game. The Fords jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first inning on Paula Redmon. Haverford catcher delivered the big blow of the inning with her first grand slam of the day. Tatum also deleivered a grand slam Haverford's five-run third.

The Eagles (4-6) open Freedom Conference play with a home doubleheader against Manhattanville College tomorrow afternoon at 2:00 pm.
