Luchetti's Home Run Lifts Pacific Over Iona, 1-0

STOCKTON, Calif. The Pacific softball team took a 1-0 decision over Iona on Tuesday at Bill Simoni Field. 

The Tigers, 12-13, pulled off the one-run victory following a home run by freshman Carly Lucchetti in the bottom sixth and complete game shutout performance by Hailey Reed.

Pacific has won seven out of it's last eight contests. Iona drops to 1-13 on the year following the loss. 

Pacific vs. Iona - In Case You Missed It:

  • Freshman outfielder Carly Lucchetti put her team on the board late in the sixth inning against the Gaels crushing a first pitch ball over to right field for her first career home run. Lucchetti's bomb would come at a favorable time for UOP as neither team had produced a run at that point.
    • The first year from Linden, Calif. finished with two hits on the day to go along with a stolen base. Lucchetti leads the team in runs scored with 13 this season.
  • Hailey Reed earned her sixth win of the season for the Tigers following a complete game shutout. Reed pitched 7.0 innings tallying nine strikeouts in the game and allowing just two hits.
    • The Topeka, Kansas native adds to her streak of games with a recorded strikeout now with 13 straight games. She also brings her K total to 79 on the year. 
  • The Tigers would strand five runners on base for the game against the Gaels.



Up Next For the Tigers:

  • UOP heads back to Bill Simoni tomorrow as they host Rider University.
  • Weather permitting, the Tigers will play a double header against the Broncos scheduled for a 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM start time.
  • Rider is currently 1-16 on the year losing three-straight to Santa Clara, Sac State, and UC Davis.
