SAN MARCOS, CA -- The Columbia softball team dropped a pair of hard-fought games against California State-San Marcos (CSSM), falling 2-1 in the first game of the day and 3-2 in eight innings in game two. With the two losses, the Cougars fall to 5-8 on the year.

Game one featured a pitcher's duel as the CSSM Cougars broke through with a run in the bottom of the fifth inning to take a 1-0 lead. Columbia waited until their final out in the seventh to tie the score when Chelsie Crain doubled home Whitni Howell with two outs. CSSM received back-to-back singles to start the bottom of the frame and was able to push the winning run across following a sacrifice and fielding error by the Cougars.

Freshman Amber Boehme took the hard-luck loss for Columbia in the circle, giving up two runs (one earned) on nine hits. The Cougars finished with five hits in the contest, led by Crain and Howell with two apiece.

Columbia was able to bounce back and grab a 1-0 lead in the third inning of game two after Jamie Holmes led off with a walk and came around to score on an RBI single by Marli Hayes. The Cougars of CSSM were able to pick up two runs in the bottom of the fifth to take a 2-1 advantage against starter Taylor Richter and reliever Tiffany Urwiler. After a single by Karina Veit to lead off the seventh inning, Columbia was down to their last out once again when Hayes delivered a game-tying single to score Veit and tie score at 2-2. Urwiler was then able to work around a leadoff hit by CSSM in the bottom of the seventh to force extra innings. The Cougars were held scoreless in the top of the eighth and CSSM put runners on first and third to begin the bottom of the frame, leading to a walk-off single by Patricia Banda.

Urwiler took the loss after giving up a run on four hits in 2.2 innings of relief. Hayes, Veit, Crain, and Taylor Atwood each had two of Columbia's eight hits in the game.

The Cougars will be off Thursday before returning to action on Friday, March 29th to take on top-ranked Concordia (Calif.) University. First pitch of the doubleheader is scheduled for 4:00 p.m.
