Washington Glory falls to Venezuela, 5-2

By:
CHANTILLY, VAThe Washington Glory could not get the bats going as they fell to the Venezuelan National Team, 5-2, Thursday night at the Westfield Softball Complex.

Washington took the early lead with two runs in their half of the second inning.  Newcomer Callista Balko, a recent graduate of the University of Arizona, led off the inning with the first double hit at Westfield.  With two outs LF Catalina Morris was hit by a pitch, which put runners on first and second.  RF Nicole Barber then drilled the first pitch she saw deep off the centerfield wall for the first triple at Westfield to score Balko and Morris.

Pitcher Taryne Mowatt (0-2) allowed four runs in five innings, all of those runs coming in the top of the third on a grand slam off the bat of Denisse Fuenmayor.  The former Arizona Wildcat received the loss while striking out and walking four batters.

Sarah Pauly , who relieved Mowatt to start the sixth inning, allowed just two hits, and struck out five in two innings, including a solo home run by Geraldine Puerta in the seventh inning.

The Glory almost tied the game in their half of the seventh putting two runners on but the rally ended as third baseman Sara Larquier popped up to end the game.

Marianella Castellanos received the win for Venezuela allowing just two runs in 4.2 innings of work on four hits.  Castellanos also struck out four and walked two.  Mariangee Bogado earned the save pitching 2.1 innings of hitless softball but walked five batters.

Maria Soto, the leadoff hitter for Venezuela, paced the offense going 3-3 with a run scored and a walk.
 
Washington will meet Venezuela for the second game of a four game series Friday in a 7:05 pm start at the Westfield Softball Complex.
