SOFTBALL: RSU drops pair in SAC Tournament

OKLAHOMA CITY — No. 22-ranked Rogers State had its final Sooner Athletic Conference Softball Tournament trip come to a close after a pair of games in the double elimination format at ASA Hall of Fame Complex Friday.

In the first game the Hillcats were run-ruled 8-0 in by Oklahoma Baptist in six innings and in the second game of the day a five-run sixth inning gave up the Hillcat lead as RSU fell 9-5 to No. 14-ranked St. Gregory’s.

GAME ONE

OBU jumped into an early lead with a three-run home run to left field by LeNae Sanchez giving the Bison a 3-0 advantage after two innings.

In the third the Bison added a solo run as Hannah Morris’ fly ball to right field was dropped by the Hillcats resulting in Morris reaching third on the error. Two batters later Dana Gray reached on a fielder’s choice, Kasey Maddox was forced out at second and Morris scored pushing the OBU lead to four runs.

A leadoff double by Krystal Johnson down the left field line was followed with a wild pitch moving the Bison third baseman to third. LeNae Sanchez tallied her fourth RBI of the game with a sacrifice fly to right scoring Johnson as the Bison led 5-0.

RSU held OBU scoreless in the fifth before a three-run sixth inning resulted in the run rule victory for the Bison.

Noelle McDowell (13-9) earned the complete game victory as she struck out five Hillcats and gave up just two hits.

Linsey Curtis (0-5) received the loss in the circle in the start for the Softball Cats. Curtis fanned three batters but allowed eight runs, seven earned, while allowing nine hits.

GAME TWO

Rogers State led off the final game of the day playing at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium with one run in the top of the first. Jamie King reached on a pop-up error that allowed her to reach second. King moved to third on a Cailin Simpson single and scored as Simpson was cut down at second on a Candace Monigold fielder’s choice.
