NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The MCLA Softball team dropped a non-conference game to regional power Amherst College, 6-1, on Wednesday afternoon at the Zavattaro Athletic Complex.

The Lord Jeffs improve to 28-1 while the Trailblazers fall to 4-23 on the season.

Amherst broke open a 1-1 ball game by scoring a pair of runs in the fifth inning, while tacking on three more in the sixth to take control. With one out in fifth, Kaitlin Silkowitz walked before Donna Leet singled. Both runners moved up when Reilly Horan reached on a fielders choice, loading the bases for Carolyn Miller. Miller delivered with a two-run single to center for Amherst snapping the tie.

In the sixth, Miller singled home another run while Amherst tacked on a pair of runs following a wild pitch and an error.

Amherst ace Theresa Kelley relieved starter Caroline Sealander to close out the Trailblazers. She tossed three scoreless frames to earn the save, allowing three hits while fanning four. Sealander improved to 5-0, throwing four innings, allowing just a hit. She struck out one.

After Amherst got a run in the top of the first, MCLA tied the game on an RBI double from Kendra Hinkell. Her blast off the fence scored Kayla Koumjian from first after she walked.

MCLA missed an opportunity in the sixth to get back into the ballgame as they had two runners in scoring position with two out and Hinkell at the plate. Senior Kaitland Hager, however, was cut down at the plate attempting to score on a wild pitch.

Trailblazer right hander Ainsley MacDonald absorbed the loss. She allowed nine hits and struck out three.

MCLA is back in action Thursday at 3:30 p.m., hosting Sage College in a doubleheader
