Clearwater, Fla. – The Robert Morris University softball team rallied to take the lead after it had trailed 4-0 after four innings, but the Colonials would fall in the seventh as Seton Hall came away with a 7-6 victory in each team's final game at the USF Under Armour Showcase on a very warm and sunny Sunday afternoon at the Eddie C. Moore complex.
RMU out-hit an opponent for the third time in the tournament as it tallied 10 hits to the Pirates' eight. Furthermore, five of Seton Hall's base hits did not leave the infield while eight of the Colonials' touched the outfield landscape.
Junior Ashley Gerhart, a West Allegheny graduate, led RMU offensively as she reached base safely in three of her four plate appearances by going 1-for-2 with a triple, two walks, a RBI, a steal and a run scored.
It was her second three-bagger of the tournament and the third of her career.
