WORCESTER, Mass. - Meghan Kelly tossed a two-hitter and Nicole Magione belted a homerun as WPI defeated MIT, 2-0, on Friday. The second game of the doubleheader was rescheduled for Monday, April 10 at 4:30 p.m. due to the rainy conditions.

Kelly improved to 7-3 on the season as she did not allow a ball to leave the infield. She collected 11 strikeouts and four assists on comebackers hit to her in the circle.

Mangione accounted for both of WPI's (17-4, 4-1 NEWMAC) runs. She got things started in the first inning when she reached base on an error, stole second, advanced to third on a Kristen Gervais bunt single, and scored on a sacrifice fly hit by Jennifer Richards to leftfield. Mangione extended WPI's lead in the bottom of the fifth by smashing her third homer of the season.

Gervais had a pair of hits for WPI while Nicole DeCampo and Briana Dougherty each notched singles.

Leah Bogsted picked up the loss as she allowed five hits and one earned run while striking out three. Corinne Vannatta and Joy Dunn both recorded infield hits for MIT (2-11, 1-4 NEWMAC).
