This post was originally published on this site

CHARLESTON, S.C. – Tatum Ksiazek had a masterful performance in the circle for Iowa State. The sophomore threw a complete-game shutout and only allowed one Dartmouth hit. When all was said and done, the Dartmouth softball team suffered a 12-0 defeat at the hands of the Cyclones Sunday morning on the campus of the College of Charleston. The Big Green finish their first weekend of the season with a 2-3 record, while the Cyclones improve to 6-6.
Madie Augusto (1-1) did not allow a run in the first two innings, but the Cyclones brought three across in the third. After a leadoff walk, Sami Williams hit an RBI double, Skyler Ramos followed that with an RBI single and Sally Woolpert then singled to bring in Ramos, making it a 3-0 Iowa State lead after three.
The Cyclones exploded for nine runs in the fifth inning to extend their lead to 12-0. Iowa State was firing on all cylinders as they quickly loaded the bases and kept up the pressure on Dartmouth by bringing in runs in succession.
The Big Green did not have a hit until there was one-out in the bottom of the fifth inning. Abby Shipley stopped the no-hitter with a base hit to the left side of the infield. Dartmouth then lined into a double play, implementing the run-rule to end the game.
Dartmouth heads further south to Florida for the UCF Invite beginning on March first through the third. The Big Green start the tournament against Louisiana Tech at 12 p.m. and UCF at 5 p.m. on Friday.
