Softball Shuts Out Emmanuel 4-0
3/10/2014 — MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - Penn State Altoona softball posted a 4-0 shutout of Emmanuel College on Monday afternoon at the North Myrtle Beach Sports Complex, improving to 3-1 on their spring trip.
Raychel DeArmitt (Bellefonte, PA/Bellefonte) tossed a complete game shutout, pitching seven innings and striking out nine batters. The win is already her third of the season. She also helped her own cause at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a two-run double.
The Lady Lions' offense cooled off after producing 20 runs against Blackburn College earlier in the day, but they were able to scratch a run across in the top of the third inning against Emmanuel to take a 1-0 lead. Ala Miller (Muncy, PA/Muncy) led off the inning with a walk and later came around to score on a throwing error.
Penn State Altoona added insurance in the sixth. Kelly Chambers (Snow Shoe, PA/Bald Eagle) clubbed her first home run of the season, a solo shot over the center field fence that made it 2-0. Later in the frame, DeArmitt's triple down the right field line brought Summer Feathers (Altoona, PA/Altoona) and Lily Glunt (Snow Shoe, PA/Bald Eagle) home to increase the Lady Lions' advantage to 4-0.
