GU offense heats up in sweep of Clarks Summit

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University baseball team saw its offense warm
up on a frigid Saturday afternoon at Hoy Field as the Bison swept Clarks
Summit University 16-4 and 14-5 in a non-conference doubleheader.

Gallaudet (4-6) snapped its six-game losing streak as the Bison tallied a
combined 30 runs and 35 hits against Clarks Summit (0-2) in the two
seven-inning games.

Game 1: Gallaudet 16, Clarks Summit 4
Gallaudet scored runs in every inning but the fifth as the Bison built an
early 3-0 lead and later increased the margin to 10-3 through five
innings. The visitors tacked on one more run before the Bison put things
away with six runs in the bottom of the sixth.

Junior Robersy Delgado (Tampa, Fla.) picked up his first win of the season
as he went six strong innings where he allowed four runs (one earned) on
eight hits, walked two and struck out two. Freshman Billy Sowers (Woodland
Hills, Calif.) pitched one inning of scoreless relief to close the game.

Game 2: Gallaudet 14, Clarks Summit 5
Sophomore pitcher Darren Drolsbaugh (Lansdale, Pa.) pitched a gem through
the first five innings as he only allowed one hit during those shutout
innings as GU built up a 11-0 lead. The Defenders got on the scoreboard
with three runs in the top of the sixth with two outs after two Bison
errors extended the frame.

The Bison responded with three of their own runs in the bottom of the
sixth when senior Cameron Upton (Vicksburg, Miss.) hit an inside-the-park
home run to right-center field to clear the bases and drive in three runs.

Drolsbaugh (1-0) finished the complete game as he allowed five runs (one
earned) on four hits, walked one and struck out four.

Gallaudet collected six extra-base hits, highlighted by Upton’s home run.
Sophomore Austin Sliva-Wynne (Richmond, Texas) and junior Gilwon Seo
(Hongseong, South Korea) had RBI triples in the win. Sliva-Wynne led all
batters with four RBI while Upton and senior Ryan Gilbert (Mount Dora,
Fla.) had four hits each

Gallaudet softball

Bison drop first two games of the 2019 season

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University softball dropped its first two games of
the 2019 season here Saturday on a cold and overcast afternoon at the GU
Softball Complex. The Bison (2-2) lost the first game 11-1 in five innings
to Rhode Island College. Later in the day, Frostburg State University
clipped the Bison, 9-5.

Rhode Island College 11, Gallaudet 1 (F/5)
The Bison go off to a slow start against the Anchormen from Rhode Island
College. Gallaudet’s starting pitcher Jacklyn Zacarias (Montebello,
Calif.) surrendered 10 runs (six earned) on seven hits, three walks and
one strikeout as the visitors built an early 10-1 lead.

Zacarias had a hand in GU’s lone run as she tripled to right field in the
bottom of the first inning to drive home sophomore Hannah Neild
(Litchfield, N.H.). The RBI triple cut the Rhode Island College lead to
two runs, 3-1.

The Anchormen plated 10 unanswered runs the rest of the game before play
was halted after five innings due to the eight-run mercy rule.

Rhode Island College pitcher Briana Gough (1-0) picked up the win as she
allowed one run on three hits and struck out three in four innings of
work. This marked the first game of the 2019 season for the Anchormen.

Frostburg St. 9, Gallaudet 5
In the third and final game on Saturday, the visiting Bobcasts (3-5) built
a 5-0 lead through the first four innings against the Bison (2-2).

Gallaudet erupted for five runs in the bottom of the fifth to knot the
game at five.

Neild doubled to left-center field to bring home three runs. Zacarias
followed and reached on a dropped fly ball by the left fielder as Neild
ran home. Freshman Emma Giuntoli (Austin, Texas) followed with a double to
right field to score Zacarias. Giuntoli was thrown out a third base to end
the rally for the Bison.

Frostburg State responded with three runs in the sixth and one additional
run in the seventh to earn its third win of the season.

Freshman Elizabeth Stern (Lexington, Mass.) took the loss as she pitched a
complete game. Stern allowed nine runs on seven hits and walked 10.
