By Jamie Goldberg

CLAREMONT, CA - Despite strong pitching outings from Carolyn Cross PO '13 and Caitlyn Hynes PO '14, P-P fell to number one nationally ranked Linfield College Thursday 7-0.

The Wildcats showed why they are ranked number one in the country, displaying their offensive power immediately, putting three runs on the board in the first inning. Cross held the game close through the fourth only giving up one more run on a Linfield homerun. In the fifth another homerun gave the Wildcats a 6-0 lead. P-P rallied in the bottom of the inning with singles from Alexis Garcia PI '11 and Kathryn Rabak PO '13, but could not string any hits together to drive in a run. The Wildcats scored again in the seventh to take the game 7-0.
