Softball defeats Howard in doubleheader 9-1, 6-5

Softball defeats Howard in doubleheader 9-1, 6-5

Freshman pitcher Lovina Capria came on for relief and finished the game up to the fifth inning. This put Drexel back a little, but they put a stop to the barrage of runs by blanking Towson for the next two innings.

"The takeaway is our defense needs to get better", Highland coach Sarah Funston said of her team's two errors, several misplayed balls and three runs scoring on wild pitches. "The most important quality of our team is we know how to work hard but also how to have fun". "Defense turned it around after that, but at that point it was nearly too late".

MLC jumped on top early thanks to a four-run second inning, but NCU came back to tie the score at 4-4 in the bottom of the third inning. "There are some things we're doing better than a year ago and some things we need to get better at".

The Raiders wouldn't go down without a fight and with Manion on the mound, they seemed to tighten things up. Senior Taylor Weaver tossed 3 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing one hit while striking out five. Scott's pitching line: 4 innings, 12 hits, 10 runs, 9 earned runs, 1 walk, and 2 strikeouts.

It was a remarkable pitching performance from Manion in the first contest. "They had a good approach with Casey today, so we have to make that adjustment tomorrow".

The Bulls (14-22, 6-8 MAC) lost game one 7-3. Ecker crossed home plate on a Hayden single to tie the game. "You give them extra opportunities and you give them more chances they're going to take advantage of it". Despite Manion having the hot hand, Skudre chose to put Evans back on the mound for the second game.

"This was an exciting game", said Port Richmond coach Karin Crowley. "We got some bunts down to move runners along and that's something that we haven't always been able to do so it was nice to see that".

The Mustangs, who led 5-0 after the top of the second, needed a three-run sixth inning to regain the lead.




However, SDSU exploded for six runs in the bottom of the fifth to end the game.

Bechina was on fire on the afternoon as he would hit his second home run on the day in the bottom of the third to give the Spartans a 6-3 lead. Barker and senior outfielder Samantha McQueen scored on RBI singles. Branford's next hitter, Brittany Frye, waited on a slow changeup and lined a single to left field to bring in Linton and cut Trenton's lead to 4-2.

Hayden walked and Kayla Suhl was hit by a pitch before Kayla Adwell scored on a Cosgrove fielder's choice.

Game three of the series is still to be determined at time of publication. She allowed 4 runs on 6 hits and struck out 3 batters. Emma Day went 1 for 3 with one RBI, Angelica Cano went 1 for 4 with one run and one RBI and Isabelle Juarez scored a run for Elk Grove. Winning pitcher Hannah Wood was 3-for-3 with a home run, double, sacrifice fly and five RBIs.

Carlinville tallied two more runs in the seventh inning.

"(Evans) pitched a heck of a game", Skudre said.

Selkirk 10, Cusick 5 (game 2): Allison Petrich had four hits and the Rangers downed the Panthers in the second game.

Friday's games will start at 2 and 4 p.m. and Sunday's games will start at 1 and 3 p.m.
