(Walnut, CA) The Mt. SAC Softball team dropped its third game of the season with a 3-1 loss to visiting Cypress College Friday (April 23) afternoon.
With two runs in the third inning and one in the fourth, the Chargers (5-0) held off the Mounties (1-3) for the nonconference win.
Sophomore pitcher Annalisa Panuco allowed only three hits and struck out six batters for the Mounties in seven innings.
Three walks and a hit led to two early runs by Cypress in the third, but a perfect throw by Mt. SAC centerfielder Emily Barba to Panuco at home ended the rally.
The Chargers added another run in the fourth for the 3-0 lead.
With two outs in the fifth inning, the Mounties had back-back-doubles by sophomore shortstop Ryan Brizo (1 for 3, Dbl., R) and Barba (2 for 4, Dbl., RBI, SB), scoring Brizo, to trail, 3-1.
