Islanders' Pauly Gets Win for USSAA Pride, Osterman Given Retirement Ceremony

Posted: Updated:

CORPUS CHRISTI (CC Hooks) - Sarah Pauly allowed one run over six innings as the USSSA Pride doubled up Akron 8-4 in Game 1 of the NPF Coastal Classic Thursday night at Whataburger Field before 2,820.

Pauly (1-0) scattered six hits and did not walk a batter. She fanned three. Her counterpart, Ivy Renfroe (0-1), was tagged for nine hits in a complete-game effort. The Tennessee product walked one and struck out three.

Just three of the Pride's runs were earned.

They took advantage of some charity in moving to a 1-0 advantage through one. Lead-off hitter Kelly Kretschman was struck by a Renfroe pitch and swiped second base. An out later, she advanced 60 feet via a passed ball charged to Sam Marder. Natasha Watley picked up Kretschman with a sacrifice fly to center.

The Pride added a run in the second as Kretschman produced a bases-loaded fielder's choice RBI, first baseman Charlotte Morgan's throw to the plate too late to nab Lauren Lappin.

Lappin's double to left and run-scoring singles from Andrea Duran (2 RBI) and Ashley Charters keyed a three-run third as the Pride built a five-score lead.

Two frames later, it was 7-0. Pinch-hitter Francesca Enea doubled and the re-entered Duran tallied on Charters' triple to dead center. Charters crossed on a relay throwing error by Racers shortstop Brigette Del Ponte.

Pauly lost her shutout bid in the sixth, Marder's sacrifice fly to right plating Brianna Turang.

The Pride answered in the same measure, Kristyn Sandberg's third hit of the night sending Caitlin Lowe (lead-off walk) homeward.

Del Ponte's two-run homer to left-center off reliever Blaire Luna pulled the Racers to within five, and an RBI single from Taylor Schlopy accounted for the final margin. Luna, a former University of Texas standout, was making her first pro appearance.

The teams meet again Friday at 7 p.m. Cat Osterman (2-0) is scheduled pitcher for the Pride in her last start on Texas soil. Osterman, 30, retires at the end of the 2013 NPF season.
