RIVERSIDE, Calif. (April 19, 2014) - An under-the-weather BYU-Hawaii softball team dropped two games to Cal Baptist on Saturday.
The Seasiders (10-20, 6-18) lost a close one 3-0 in game one and fell behind 11-1 in a five-inning game in the second. Several players on the team had been battling illness, forcing Friday's game to be rescheduled to April 22.
Gabby Hawkins, a senior on her last road trip, was honored with a special plaque at the games. She started in game one and struck out four over six innings, surrendering five hits and three unearned runs.
In the bottom of the third, a throwing error on a bunt allowed one run to score, followed by a single to bring in one more after the error.
Cal Baptist added one more on a bases-loaded throwing error in the bottom of the fifth on a pickoff attempt to add some insurance, winning it in the end 3-0.
In game two, BYU-Hawaii struck first when Makaela Williamson singled up the middle to score Alvarez in the first inning.
The 1-0 lead didn't last long however as the Lancers answered with two in the bottom half of the first.
The game got away from the Seasiders in the third, fourth and fifth innings. Cal Baptist capped the win with a grand slam in the fifth to put the game out of reach.
BYU-Hawaii will play two games against Azusa Pacific on Monday and visit the Lancers again on Tuesday to make up Friday's games.
