Lynchburg, Va.

Michelle Moultrie was 1-for-4 with a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base Friday for Team USA.

Gator alumna Michelle Moultrie and sophomore Kelsey Stewart both saw action Friday night as the USA Softball Women’s National Team Selection Camp started an exhibition tour with a doubleheader sweep of the Central Virginia All-Stars. Team USA took Game 1, 10-2, and Stewart and Moultrie each contributed in Game 2 as the Red, White and Blue earned a 6-0 victory.

 

Moultrie (1x4) scored a run, recorded an RBI and stole a base in the nightcap, while Stewart (1x4) drove in a run. The Gator duo batted back-to-back at the top of the order for Team USA, and both players contributed during a four-run fourth inning. Moultrie came to bat with runners on second and third with one out in the frame, and she reached on a fielder’s choice to score the lead runner. Stewart followed with an infield single to drive in another run.

 

Two innings later, Moultrie led off the sixth with a bunt single and then stole second. Team USA manufactured a run as Moultrie moved up on a teammate’s infield hit before scoring the game’s final run on a sacrifice fly.

 

Team USA’s exhibition tour continues Tuesday in Findlay, Ohio, where the Selection Camp invitees will play a doubleheader against the Ohio All-Stars beginning at 6 p.m. ET. Ticket information is available here, and fans can visit the USA Softball website for information about the Women’s National Team.
