Game One Box
Game Two Box

MANSFIELD Ė Junior Amanda Lewis (Stamford,CT/West Hill) tied the game with a three-run homerun in the bottom of the seventh inning and then drove in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth to rally Mansfield to a 5-4 win over East Stroudsburg in the opening game of a PSAC East doubleheader at  Helen Lutes Field on Saturday.

Things looked bleak for the Mounties as they trailed 4-1 in the bottom of the seventh inning when Shana Markwis (Milford/Delwaware Valley) led off the inning with a single.  Next batter Kristina Poore (Matamoras/Delaware Valley) double, but Markwis was thrown out at 3rd to make the first out of the inning.  Jess Christ (Dover/Dover) was then hit by a pitch, putting runners on first and second.  After a fielders choice, the Mountaineers were down to their last out of the game with runners on first and second to set the stage for Lewis, who drilled a pitch over the center field fence to tie the game. 

Neither team would score again until the bottom of the ninth inning, when Jen Stein (Williamsport/Williamsport), with two outs, hit a line drive double down the left field line to put a runner in scoring position.  Lewis would save the day again afterwards with an RBI single to centerfield to score pinch runner Erin Hackett (Elkland/Elkland) to end the game. 

Shelly Forsburg (Vestal,NY/Vestal) went the entire nine innings, striking out five batters with only one walk.

Lewis went 2-3 with a homerun and a single and four RBIís, while Jen Stein went 2-5 with a double.

Errors and walks kept Mansfield in a hole in the second game as the Mountaineers trailed 9-0 in the fifth inning.  Brittany Walker (Vestal,NY/Vestal) led of the bottom of the fifth with a single, and two walks would load the bases before Jess Christ doubled in two runs. 

Lindsay Knapp (Millerton/Millerton) took the loss for the Mountaineers. 

Mansfield moved to 5-24 for the season and 2-12 in the PSAC and will travel to Shippensburg tomorrow to play a doubleheader.
