Gettysburg Box Score
Gordon Box Score

MYRTLE BEACH, SC – Nicole Yost (Antes Fort/Jersey Shore) hit two home runs in the opener and Melissa Baer (Williamsport/Williamsport) fired a one-hitter in the nightcap to lead Mansfield to a 2-1 win over Gettysburg College and 1-0 over Gordon College at the Snowbird Invitational in Myrtle Beach Monday.

In the opener against Gettysburg, Yost hit a two-out solo shot to over the centerfield fence and added another solo home run with two-outs in the fifth to break a 1-1 deadlock.

Freshman Caitlin Kolbosits (Coplay/Whitehall) overcame some wildness to scatter five hits and strikeout out seven while also issuing seven walks to improve to 2-0 on the season. Erin Carroll (Matawan,NJ/Mater Dei) went 3-3 from the plate with a double.

In the nightcap against Gordan, Baer was masterful allowing just a two-out single to Claire Bennett in the first and striking out 10 while walking just one to improve to 2-0 on the season.

Mansfield, which had six hits in the game, scored the game’s only run in the fourth when Yost doubled and later scored on a sac fly by Gab Carrullo (Chalfont/Central Bucks South).

Mansfield improved to 4-0 on the season and plays Mt. Aloysius and SUNY-IT Tuesday.
