NEWPORT, R.I. -- The Mitchell College softball team saw its eight-game winning streak snapped at Salve Regina University on Thursday afternoon, falling by 8-0 scores in a non-conference doubleheader at Toppa Field.
The Mariners had a tough time at the plate and finished with only four hits on the day. Maliah Pabellon provided Mitchell's only hit in the opener, a single to center field in the third inning. She also had one of three hits in the nightcap along with Samantha DelConte and Taylor Duchesneau.
Salve Regina batters banged out 23 hits, 11 for extra bases, and did not strike out in either of the two games. Lindsey Florent had five hits including two triples and a double to lead the Seahawks offense. Julia Coute picked up her first collegiate win by hurling five innings of shutout ball in the opener; a six-run fourth inning from her offense put the game out of reach. Ashley D'Antuono and Courtney Latta combined for the win in the second game and extended Salve's shutout streak to 17 innings over last four games.
Mitchell (8-8 overall) will next play at Elms College on Sunday, April 8 at noon.
