George Mason 4
Rider's Rachael Matreale surely must be the hard luck pitcher of the MAAC. Once again, just like last season, Rachael's ERA goes down, but she loses the game. Rider is having a bit of trouble getting their bats warm this young season, being shut out by George Mason Friday at the Patriot Classic 4-0.
The Broncs did manage 7 hits today, including a pair by Kehli Washington, but were not able to send anyone home. Rachael Matreale allowed only 2 earned runs, while striking out 9, but Rider committed 2 errors that led directly to runs.
The Broncs will return to action Saturday in Fairfax, VA and will again play host George Mason and then Cornell.
