  • Softball and Baseball Win on Tuesday

Softball won in dramatic fashion at home against the Iona Gaels, 3-2. Senior starting pitcher Lauren Quense gave up a solo home run in the first inning. The Rams took the lead in the fourth inning after a fielding error allowed two runs to score. Freshman Taylor Stocks gave up a run in the top of the sixth, but senior Lindsay Mayer came to the rescue with a walk-off sacrifice fly. They are 30-9.

Baseball’s quick road trip to Siena was less dramatic, as the Rams won easily, 11-3. Fordham had 11 hits, including a homer and a triple from senior Ryan Mahoney. They used seven pitchers, who collectively gave up just one earned run and twirled 12 strikeouts. They improve to 15-13.
