Broncos Come Up Short In Bid For Weekend Sweep of Seattle
SEATTLE, Wash. The Boise State softball team dropped its second straight game in the Husky Softball Classic with a 14-1 loss to Seattle on Sunday. The Redhawks (3-6) handed the Broncos (5-7) their worst loss of the season and avenged their 3-2 loss to the Broncos on Saturday.

Seattle hit two home runs, including a grand slam, to go up 7-0 after the first two frames. The Redhawks hot bats did not quit as they put up a game-high five runs in the third, one in the fourth and one more in the fifth en route to the abbreviated victory.

Despite the loss, the Broncos hammered out nine hits but were only able to plate one run in the fourth. The run came off a bases-loaded situation when Christina Capobianco knocked in Ashleigh Viers-Gordillo (2-for-3, one run scored) on a fielder’s choice. Lexi Straton had her third multi-hit game of the season with a perfect 3-for-3 day at the plate, including a double.

Broncos’ pitchers combined for a season-high 10 strikeouts on the day. Freshman Allie Crump (0-2) and junior Mandy Klein recorded five K’s a piece in the loss. The Broncos will try to rebound later today against No. 3/1 Washington at 2:30 p.m. (PT).
