The Fort Lewis College softball team split a doubleheader against Regis on Saturday in Denver, winning Game 1 2-1 in a two-hitter from freshman Alyssa Rahm before losing an error-filled Game 2 10-9.
"The first game was a brilliant game," said Fort Lewis head coach Pam Adams.
"It was just a good game from both teams. Both pitchers threw the ball really well."
Rahm, from Farmington High School, moved to 6-4 in her first college season for the Skyhawks (9-9, 5-5 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference).
"The second game wasn't so pretty," Adams said. "They scored 10 on us, but it wouldn't surprise me if only five were earned."
Adams' other freshman pitcher had her string of bad luck continue as Stephanie Janes fell to 3-4.
"Stephanie only allowed one really well-hit ball, and that was a grand slam," Adams said. "Everything else was blooped just over somebody's head. We just have to play better defense, straight up."
The Fort Lewis coach said all of the Skyhawks' runs were earned.
"If you hit that well, you should be able to win," Adams said.
The Skyhawks play another doubleheader at Regis today, starting at 11 a.m.
"We have a shot (today), but we're going to have to work extremely hard to get it done."
