Softball Falls To Providence, 6-1

The Boston College softball team couldn't keep its offensive momentum going into the last game of its three games in three day stretch as it lost to Providence, 6-1, on Thursday afternoon at Raymond Field in Providence, R.I.

The loss drops Boston College to 10-19 for the season, while the win improves Providence to 11-16 on the year.

Boston College now drops to 1-14 on the season when it scores two runs or less in a game.

Providence got on the board first in the bottom of the third inning scoring three runs on three hits off Eagles starter Nicole D'Argento (3-7). Senior Taylor Peyton came in to relieve D'Argento with two outs in the third.

D'Argento's line for the afternoon was two and two thirds innings pitched allowing three runs on seven hits while striking out three. She seems to be hitting the freshman wall as of late as this is her second straight start that she has failed to make it past the third inning.

The Eagles cut the Providence lead down to 3-1 thanks to an RBI double by Maria Pandolfo that scored Alison Kooistra from second base.

The Friars put the game out of reach in the bottom of the fifth inning using a three-run home run off of Peyton to make the score 6-1.
