TAMPA - The USF softball team was unable to extend their winning streak in game two of Saturday’s double header, falling to Rutgers, 3-2, at the USF Softball Stadium.

 

The Scarlet Knights snapped USF’s 17-game winning streak by scoring two runs in the top of the seventh and holding on for their 14th win.

 

The Bulls took an early lead after they loaded the bases in the second and took advantage when Kenshyra Jackson scored on an error by Rutgers’ first baseman Alexis Durando.

 

One batter later, Dani Wayt hit a sacrifice fly to left field that scored Lee Ann Spivey to put USF up 2-0.

 

Rutgers cut the lead to one in the top of the fifth on Chandler Howard’s RBI single to left field.

 

With two outs and runners on first and second in the fifth, Sara Nevins came on in relief of Richardson and got a big groundout to third base to end the threat and keep the lead at 2-1.

 

Richardson went 4 2/3 innings, giving up one run on three hits while striking out seven.

 

In the top of the seventh Rutgers tied the game on an RBI single by Durando and took the lead on a throwing error by catcher Lee Ann Spivey.

 

D’Anna Devine reached base on an infield single in the bottom half of the inning, but she was stranded there to end the game.

 

With the loss USF falls to 23-11 on the year and 1-1 in BIG EAST play. The rubber game between the Bulls and Knights has been moved up to 10 a.m. tomorrow morning.
