LOS ANGELES – Dartmouth was blanked by Loyola Marymount, 6-0, Sunday morning in Los Angeles to finish the CSUN/LMU Tournament. The Big Green (2-13) had their chances, stranding four runners in scoring position, while the Lions (17-11) scored in the first, second and fourth innings.
Micah Schroder finished 2-3 at the plate, while Calista Almer, Morgan Martinelli and Bryce West each had a hit. LMU’s Samantha Manti pitched a complete game shutout where she only allowed five hits and struck out four batters.
The Lions put their first run on the board in the first on an RBI groundout. LMU then extended its lead to 4-0 in the second on a two RBI single and a sacrifice fly.
Martinelli hit a one-out single in the fourth to get some momentum started for the Big Green. Schroder followed that with a base hit of her own to put runners on first and second. After Jade Bravo came in to pinch run for Martinelli, a passed ball advanced Bravo to third and Schroder to second with only one out. LMU defended a Dartmouth bunt perfectly, throwing out Bravo at the plate for the second out and the inning ended on a Big Green fly out.
LMU scored its fifth and sixth runs in the fourth. The fifth run for the Lions came in on a fielder’s choice and the sixth scored on an RBI groundout.
Dartmouth had another chance to score in the seventh when Schroder began the inning with a double and got to third when West singled with one out, but game ended on a strikeout and fly out.
The Big Green stay in California for two midweek games. The first is a rematch at CSUN on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. ET.
