SOFTBALL: RSU sweeps Bacone in season opener

MUSKOGEE — The Rogers State softball team opened the 2013 season with a doubleheader sweep over Bacone (Okla.) on Wednesday afternoon in Muskogee, Okla.

The Hillcats started the day with a 14-0 win in five innings and topped it off with a 9-0 run-rule victory over the Warriors in the night cap. RSU banged out 28 hits in the twin bill, including a trio of home runs.   

GAME ONE

The Hillcats scored early and often in the first game of the twin bill. Candace Monigold got the offense started in the first frame with a RBI triple down the left field line. Katrina Loy followed with a double off the right-centerfield wall to send Monigold home. Yolanda Rios rounded out the scoring in the inning with a RBI double off the right field wall.

Kelli Costello led off the bottom of the first for the Lady Warrior and registered a single. She moved into scoring position on a pass ball but that was as close as she would get as Rios retired the next three batters.

RSU registered two more runs in the second thanks to a pair of Bacone errors and a RBI single by Monigold while the Hillcats retired the side in the bottom half of the inning.     

After a scoreless third the Hillcats piled on four runs in the fourth with a two RBI double by Loy and a two-run home run by Shona Guerrero.

The Cats sealed the win with a five-run fifth. Cailin Simpson drove in Katie Ellington with a single up the middle, Monigold tallied her second RBI triple of the game, Loy registered a RBI double and Rios rounded out the scoring with a two RBI triple.  

Rios led the offense for RSU, going 4-for-4 at the plate while registering the win in the circle for the Cats. The right-handed pitcher tossed four innings, allowing just two hits with six strikeouts. Laura Fleck tossed the final inning for the Hillcats while Taylor Paulson was tagged with the loss for the Lady Warriors allowing 15 hits, 14 runs with 12 of them earned.
