Jerpbak Pitches Well For Bulldogs

Yale got a very well pitched game from Terra Jerpbak in its final game at Duke's Tournament on Saturday. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, North Dakota State's KK Leddy was just a little better. She struck out six and tossed a six-hit shutout to lead the Bison to a 3-0 victory. In their first game of the day, the Bulldogs fell to Lehigh 7-2.

Jerpbak also struck out six in her strong outing against North Dakota State. The Bison scored once in the third and twice in the fifth to escape with the win.

Sydney Grobman had a pair of hits for Yale. The Bulldogs had baserunners in every inning but one but couldn't capitalize. Their best chance came in the fifth when Grobman singled and Shelby Kennedy was hit by a pitch. Leddy, though, retired the next three hitters to end the threat.

Jerpbak, Kennedy, Kortney Ponce and Allison Skinner also had hits for Yale.

In the first game, the Bulldogs had a 2-0 lead after three innings. Madison Sack knocked home one run and Olivia Vinyard scored the other on an error.

The Mountain Hawks, though, erupted for six runs in the fifth and tacked on another in the sixth.

Vinyard was 2-for-4 to lead Yale's offense. Kennedy also had two hits. First years Olivia Lee and Ponce both had one hit as did Annie Tarte.

The Bulldogs are off until next Friday when they start play in Maryland's Tournament. Yale faces Miami, Ohio at 10 a.m. and Jacksonville at 12:30 p.m.
