Brittany File No-Hitter Highlights Emory Softball Sweep Of Fontbonne

From Emory University Athletics

Emory sophomore Brittany File's second-game no-hitter highlighted the Eagles' effort on Saturday in a doubleheader sweep over Fontbonne University.  Emory whitewashed the Griffins twice, both by 3-0 scores, in raising its overall record to 20-2 while the Griffins slipped to 6-8.  The two victories raised the Eagles' home record to 12-0.

Emory 3, Fontbonne 0 – File tosses a no-hit gem, allowing just one walk while striking 10 batters, her second-highest total of the campaign … It is Emory's first seven-inning no hitter since April 8, 2005, when Kathy Gordon accomplished that feat against Wesleyan (Ga.) College in a 6-0 triumph … The Eagles score the only run they would need in the first inning when junior center fielder Alyssa Pollard leads off with a double and eventual scores when sophomore Tara Fallahee singles her in … Freshman first baseman Ashley Powers delivers a two-run single in the bottom of the third that scores Fallahee and pinch runner Raygan Greer … File's performance raises her record to 7-2.

Emory 3, Fontbonne 0 – The Eagles use the long ball in registering a victory in the opener … Junior hurler Sydney Carpenter holds the Griffins to five hits and fans six in upping her season mark to 12-0 … Sophomore right fielder Amy Wray gets Emory on the board first with a two-run homer in the bottom of the fourth, her second round tripper of the year, and the first of her two hits in the contest … After a scoreless fifth, Emory tacks on its final run of the afternoon when Fallahee socks her third homer of the season.
