LEWISTON, Maine — First-year Kirsten Pelletier struck out seven in a complete game victory in game one and senior Maddie Inlow tallied four hits, including a home run in Tuesday’s doubleheader split between the Bates softball team and Husson University.

Bates (10-12) took game one 3-2 and dropped game two 11-5 against the Eagles (24-10).

Pelletier (Sidney, Maine) struck out seven batters and allowed only two runs on five hits in the circle in the Bobcats’ 3-2 victory over Husson in game one of Tuesday’s doubleheader.

Bates got on the board against Husson starter Arika Brochu (4-4) in the bottom of the fourth.

Inlow (Falmouth, Maine) singled to start the frame. First-year Julia Treadwell (Falmouth, Maine) followed with a drive that got dropped by the Husson center fielder. Inlow advanced to third and Treadwell ended up at second base on the play.

Junior Tori Fitzgerald (Holliston, Mass.) bunted her way aboard, driving in Inlow to put the Bobcats up 1-0.

In the fifth inning, sophomore Livie Gilbert (Turner, Maine) singled to center leading off the inning and Pelletier helped her own cause by doubling home Gilbert to extend the Bobcat lead to 2-0. Pelletier advanced to third on the throw home and she scored when first-year Julia Panepinto (Buffalo, N.Y.) reached on a fielder’s choice. The Eagles’ throw home on Panepinto’s grounder was not in time to get Pelletier.

Husson rallied with two runs in the top of the seventh.

Tamara Aunchman singled through the right side and pinch hitter Morgan Coleman followed with a single of her own. Two outs later, Nicole Andrade singled to load the bases.

Pinch hitter Olivia Maynard singled in two runners to trim the Bobcat lead to 3-2.

But Pelletier (6-7) got Briana Brochu to line out to Panepinto, clinching the win for Bates.

Inlow finished 2-3 with a run scored in the first half of the twin bill. Bates outhit Husson 6-5 in the victory.
