Devin Moorman took the loss on the mound, despite allowing just four hits and one run. The senior struck out eight batters and walked just one in throwing just 76 pitches in the complete game performance.

Against Coast Guard, Megan Ream led the Ravens with two hits and a stolen base.

Natalie Moorhouse had a two-run homer, and freshman Sami Frazier homered in first career at-bat.

Coast Guard scored all four runs in the first two innings and outhit the Ravens 10-7 in the game. AU was 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position.

Freshman Hannah Belvo took the loss on the mound, allowing 10 hits and four earned runs in five innings while striking out two. Lauren Smith tossed the final two innings and didn’t allow a hit, striking out four.

AU (0-2) plays Utica (9 a.m.) and Endicott (1 p.m.) today in Kissimmee, Fla.
