LAKEWOOD, Calif. - The Long Beach State softball team (8-12) bounced back from a 4-2 loss to Notre Dame as sophomore Taylor Petty tossed a one-hitter to lift the 49ers to a 2-0 victory over Buffalo Saturday evening at Mayfair Park.
Notre Dame 4, Long Beach State 2
LBSU dropped a 4-2 decision to Notre Dame to begin the second day of the Long Beach State Invitational.
Senior Ashley Weber and junior Christina Schallig both had a pair of hits to lead the LBSU offense. Junior Brooke Turner went the distance in the circle, giving up four runs (three earned) on eight hits, while striking out five.
Notre Dame (15-5) scored three of its four runs in the first inning. Heather Johnson had an RBI double, while Dani Miller drove in two with a single down the left field line.
The 49ers threatened in the fourth inning as Liz Javier and Schallig singled before Caitrin DeBaun reached safely on a fielder's choice, but Jackie Bowe was able to retire Kristen Pocock and Ashley Levine to end the inning.
The Fighting Irish eventually tacked on one more in the top of the sixth before The Beach pushed two across in the bottom half of the inning. Javier drew a leadoff walk before Schallig and DeBaun had back-to-back singles. Jennifer Madigan and Nalani St. Germain both walked with the bases loaded to account for LBSU's runs.
Long Beach State 2, Buffalo 0
Long Beach State bounced back in the nightcap of its doubleheader as sophomore Taylor Petty tossed a one-hitter to lift the 49ers to a 2-0 victory over Buffalo (7-11).
Petty earned LBSU's first shutout of the season as she struck out seven batters. Liz Javier led the 49er attack, going 2-for-2 with a run scored. Senior Jodi Nakawatase also finished with two hits, while Christina Schallig had both of Long Beach State's RBI.
The Beach ended a scoreless game in the top of the fifth as Javier drew a one-out walk before Schallig drove her in with a triple to the gap in right center.
The 49ers added an insurance run in the seventh when Nalani St. Germain led off with a hit. She advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Ashley Weber and moved to third on a Javier single. Schallig then plated St. Germain with a ground ball to the right side.
Long Beach State closes out the tournament on Sunday when it takes on Idaho State (11:15 a.m.) and San Diego (3:45 p.m.) at Mayfair Park.
