The good news for the Corsairs on Saturday is that they did manage to get in a softball game.
The bad news is they continued to struggle in a 14-0 loss at San Jose.
A second scheduled game was canceled.
The loss was the sixth straight for CR, which dropped to 4-10, having played all of those games on the road. The CR women won’t host a game until early April.
Lindsey Scott took the loss in the pitcher’s circle, with the home team scoring nine runs in the third to take control, and ending the game in five.
A good San Jose team improved to 13-3.
The Corsairs managed three hits, two from Bronwyn Gilfillan, who has been one of the team’s most consistent hitters this season.
Scott also had a hit.
Gilfillan came into the game averaging .333 at the plate, tied with Adriana Chavez for third on the team.
Juliana Ortega-Miranda leads the team with a .412 average, although she has played in only nine games due to injury.
The former Fortuna High standout, who returned to the team this weekend, has been very impressive in limited action, and leads the Corsairs with nine RBIs, one more than Amy Reyes.
Ortega-Miranda also has the team’s lone home run.
Sophomore catcher Pheobe Marsh has also impressed on both sides of the plate and is hitting .390.
Gilfillan leads the team in stolen bases with six, two more than Reyes, while Chavez has hit a team-leading six extra-base hits, including five doubles.
Dakota Small has four doubles.
Next up for the Corsairs is a trip to Siskiyous in two weeks.
