FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Softball drops doubleheader to No. 9 ranked Bloom

MANSFIELD – Junior Nicole Yost smashed a home run in both games but Mansfield dropped a PSAC Central doubleheader to the Huskies 6-3, 9-1 in the Mountaineers home opener at Helen Lutes Field Wednesday afternoon.

In the opener, Bloomsburg took a 6-0 lead after 5 ½ innings before the Mountaineers jumped on the board with three runs including a two-run home run by Yost to cut the lead to 6-3.

Freshman Caitlin Klobosits went 5.2 innings to take the loss striking out two and walking five. Jamie Castellano threw a perfect 1.1 innings of relief.

In the nightcap, Bloomsburg took a 2-0 led in the third and extended its lead to 9-0 with five runs in the top of the sixth before Mansfield’s Yost hit her sixth home run of the season to spoil the shutout bid by Bloomsburg’s Cait Paine.

Bloomsburg improves to 25-3 overall and 6-0 in PSAC Central play. Mansfield falls to 0-4 in conference play and 9-5 overall.
