Falcons Complete Sweep of Mount Ida with 6-2 Win

The Albertus Magnus softball team scored five runs in the fourth inning en route to a 6-2 victory over Mount Ida to complete its double-header sweep on Wednesday. With the win, the Falcons improve to 6-8 on the year and 2-4 in Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) play.

Led by four hits in the frame, including a bases clearing triple by Melissa Manning (Milford, Conn.), the Falcons scored five runs in the fourth to take a 5-0 lead. 

Mount Ida (3-6, 0-2 GNAC) tallied its two runs on a home run by Kristen Guerrero in the top of the sixth inning. Her homer cut the Falcons' lead to 5-2 before Albertus added a run in the bottom of the frame. The Falcons added their sixth and final run thanks to a Mount Ida error.

Jackie Medina (Bridgeport, Conn.) earned the win as she allowed five hits in seven innings of work.  Mount Ida's Devan Meeker gave up 11 hits and six runs in the loss.

Brittney Urciuoli (Newington, Conn.) went 3-for-4 with two runs scored for the Falcons, while both Jamie Vesciglio (Stratford, Conn.) and Danielle Figueroa (Bridgeport, Conn.) added two hits apiece.

The Mustangs were led by Guerrero with two hits and two RBI.

Albertus will host Bay Path on Thursday in a double-header beginning at 6:00 p.m.
