Game One:

Columbia 9 (3-3), RMU 1 (2-13): The Colonials were held to one run Saturday in their first game of their second day in the District Invite played in Washington D.C. as Columbia took care of the Colonials easily in five innings played. RMU scored their only run of the contest in the second inning on a passed ball in which tied the game 1-1. Unfortunately for the Colonials, Columbia scored six runs in the third inning to break the game open and take an  8-1 lead. Columbia pitchers held RMU to just three total hits. Senior Haileigh Stocks now 0-1, went two innings for Robert Morris in the circle. Stocks gave up five runs on four hits allowed.

 

Game Two:

Georgetown 6 (4-11), RMU 0 (2-14): RMU dropped their second game Saturday as they were shutout by the Georgetown Hoyas in the District Invite. Robert Morris finished with six team hits, three of which came from the bat of junior Jordan Gurganus but the Colonials could not muster a single run. Georgetown scored all the runs they needed in the opening inning when they scored four runs to take the early lead. Freshman Pitcher Kaitlin Ellzy moved to 2-6 on the season as she gave up all six  of the Hoyas runs while allowing seven hits.
