ESG Day One: Western softball splits

Corrin Genovese made it apparent on Thursday she is going to have an impact on these Games.

The infielder from Williamsville North went 3 for 5 for the Western softball team in a 2-1 loss in nine innings to Long Island. In the second game against Central she was 2 for 4 with two RBI and two runs scored in a 7-2 victory.

Long Island won the game on a wild pitch in the ninth inning. LI had runners on second and third with two outs. The next batter struck, but the pitch sailed too high to be caught and the winning run scored.

Western was able to put that loss behind them in time to beat Central in its second game. After being no-hit for four innings, Western broke up the scoreless game scoring five runs in the fifth. Chelsea Plimpton pitched a five-hitter to get the win.

Western continues its bid to medal with two games today playing New York City at 9 a.m. and Hudson Valley at 11:30 a.m.
