Bucs tally seven hits in two games

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (April 2, 2021) – The Southern Conference home opener did not go the way the ETSU Softball squad wanted, dropping a pair of shutout losses to visiting Chattanooga on Friday afternoon. With the losses, the Bucs drop to 13-10 on the season and 1-4 in league play.

Game 1: Chattanooga 1, ETSU 0
There was not a lot of offense between the two squads in game one as there were eight combined hits and just one run scored.

The Mocs plated the game’s only run in the top half of the sixth following an RBI single off the bat of R.J. Janke, plating Hayleigh Weissenbach from third.

ETSU had chances to score in the bottom of the fifth and the bottom of the sixth, leaving the bases juiced in the fifth and stranding runners on second and third in the sixth.

Stat of the Game
The Bucs left eight runners on base in game one, including six runners in the final three innings of play.

» ETSU falls to 11-27 all-time against the Mocs following the one-run loss, including 5-11 in Johnson City.

Game 2: Chattanooga 3, ETSU 0
It was much of the same story in game two for the Bucs as ETSU mustered just four hits in the 3-0 shutout loss to the Mocs.

Chattanooga struck first with an RBI single to left field in the top of the first frame. The Mocs also added one run on a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning, followed by an RBI base knock in the fifth inning.

The Bucs’ best opportunity came in the bottom of the fourth with runners on the corners and two away. However, a harmless groundout to the catcher ended the ETSU scoring threat.
