CHARLESTON, S.C.—Despite a solid effort from freshman pitcher Delany DeMello (Roseville, Calif./Roseville), the Rider University softball team lost 7-0 on Tuesday afternoon at Charleston Southern.

DeMello started the first four innings and pitched the sixth inning in relief, recording four strikeouts in the game while allowing only two earned runs.

Delany pitched well,” said head coach Tricia Carroll.

The Buccaneers broke a scoreless tie with two runs in the fourth inning on a one out RBI double and a two out bases loaded walk.

Charleston Southern (14-16-1) used three hits, including two doubles, a sacrifice fly, two walks, two Rider errors and a wild pitch to plate five runs in the bottom of the fifth inning, off sophomore reliever Montana Berg (Danville, Calif./Monte Vista).

“Charleston Southern was starting to get to Delany,” Carroll said.  “I wanted to give them a different look but it didn’t work out this time.”

Rider (2-7) had ample opportunities to score, putting the leadoff hitter on base in three of the first four innings but the Broncs left 12 runners on base.

“Leaving runners on base was a problem,” Carroll said.  “We just didn’t get the quality at-bats in the spots when we needed them.”

Rider stranded two runners in the opening inning and had the bases loaded with no outs after three consecutive walks in the top of the second inning but could not score.  The Broncs also left the bases loaded in the seventh inning.

Berg, junior Amanda Irving (Westminster, Md./Westminster), sophomore Dana Sensi (Allentown) and freshman Amanda Crimarco (Levittown, N.Y./Kellenberg) each had singles for Rider as the Bronc offense was held to four hits by four Buccaneer pitchers.

“It was a solid effort for the most part,” Carroll added.  “The pitchers need more innings and the offense needs to see more live pitching.  I’m glad we get to play three days in a row.”

Rider closes out the three-game set against Charleston Southern with a doubleheader on Wednesday, beginning at 1:00 p.m.
