SAN DEIGO, California – UT Arlington lost 12-1 as the Mavericks dropped their final game of the San Diego Classic II Sunday morning.
"We have too many players that are more worried about personal performances instead of the little things that can help the team win," UT Arlington coach Kristie Fox said. "I am seeing people expecting performance that aren't willing to put the work in during the week. That is my number one concern after this weekend."
The Mavericks are 14-15 overall and 1-4 in the tournament. Sophomore Shannon Carrico started for UTA and gave up six runs off of 12 hits against the Crimson.
The Crimson loaded the bases in the top of the second inning with no outs and scored on a hit up the middle and again on a fly to right field to take a 2-1 lead. Harvard scored two more runs on a triple and a infield single to extend its lead 4-1.
Harvard extended its lead to 5-1 on a shot over Meagan Michele's head in the fourth inning. In the fifth, they opened with a double down the left field line and were able to go up 6-1.
Senior Callie Collins started in the circle in the sixth inning, replacing Carrico. The Crimson scored two runs on a hit the tipped off Collin's glove into the outfield.
Harvard scored four runs in the seventh to claim the 12-1 victory.
The Mavericks open Sun Belt conference play as the travel to Mobile to face South Alabama in a doubleheader Saturday.
