Tiger Softbelles vent ire on Lady Batters to arrest two-game skid

Coming off two straight losses at the hands of the Adamson University Lady Falcons and the National University Lady Bulldogs, the University of Santo Tomas Tiger Softbelles did not let up from pounding the De La Salle University Lady Batters in a 7-0, sixth inning mercy rule win, Thursday afternoon at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.

UST (4-2)2221X97
DLSU (2-4)X13

The Tiger Softbelles, a team that struggled connecting in their last two games, had nine hits in the game that led to nine runs. However, the win did not leave a good impression on UST head coach Sandy Barredo, as his team left 12 runners stranded in the contest.

“Hindi ako kontento hanggang sa hindi nakakabalik yung palo nila. Last year double-digits yung panalo namin against La Salle kaya hindi ako satisfied,” rued Barredo.

Outside of Ann Antolihao’s excellent one-hit outing, UST’s lead batters Hannah dela Torre and Jessie Belano finally connected. Dela Torre had two RBIs, while Belano went 3-of-4 at-bat with an RBI.

Third basewoman Lea Guevarra went 2-of-3 as well for two runs and two RBIs.

“Pinagalitan ko kasi walang pinalo nung last game. Sinabi ko na kapag yung mga papasok na K-12 magagaling, tanggal silang lahat. Ayun natauhan,” quipped Barredo.

La Salle’s sole hit of the game came during the first inning, a single by Jamica Arribas with two outs.

Antolihao, the country’s top pitcher, had eight strikeouts in the game.

UST end their first round campaign with a 4-2 record, while La Salle dropped to fifth with a 2-4 slate.
