Hood splits a pair of games
A two-run single by Cailyn Barthlow in the seventh helped the Blazers (1-5) hold on for their first win of the season, 4-2, over Pitt-Greensburg during the team’s spring break trip to Florida. Earlier, Hood lost 6-0 to Bates.
Hood’s Belle Bortner went the distance to get her first career victory. She allowed one earned run, scattered seven hits, struck out two and walked one. The tying run got to the plate in the bottom of the inning but Bortner forced a ground ball to Barthlow at shortstop to close the game.
