Oxy Softball Falls to George Fox

LOS ANGELES — Dallas Boyce had a strong outing in the circle in Game 1 and Nyla Gatison had a good day at the plate, but the Occidental softball team couldn't pick up its first win of the season in a pair of losses to George Fox at Bell Field on Saturday.

Gatison went 3 for 6 with a run scored on the day. 

Season Impact: The Tigers fall to 0-4. 

George Fox improves to 3-1.

Game 1: George Fox 4, Occidental 1

The Tigers went quiet on offense after Natalie Glover crossed the plate to give them a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning.

George Fox scored a pair of runs in the third and two more in the seventh.

Boyce gave up just one earned run in four innings pitched. Madison Romero came on to pitch the final three innings.

George Fox leadoff hitter Kimi Ito went 2 for 4 with a pair of RBIs. 

Game 2: George Fox 7, Occidental 4

After giving up three runs in the first inning, the Tigers found themselves playing catch up the entire game and couldn't quite generate enough offense to get back into the game.
