Metro roundup: Indiana state softball loses pair in Hilltopper Classic

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — Sophomore Alexa Cavin hit an inside-the-park home run, but the Indiana State softball team fell 4-2 to Green Bay and 7-2 to host Western Kentucky in the final games of the Hilltopper Classic tournament Saturday.

“It was a day we didn’t do a lot of things very good,” ISU coach Shane Bouman said. “We got lucky [Friday] and got a couple wins that were probably unexpected and then honestly today, we didn’t pitch very well, didn’t play defense and didn’t get any hits. We have a week of practice before we head down south so we’re excited to get back to town and get to work and we will be ready.”

In the opener, the Sycamores got runners aboard in the bottom of the first before breaking into the scoring column in the bottom of the second inning when freshman Brooke Riemenschneider led off with a double and advanced to third base on a groundout. Junior Aubre Carpenter walked and stole second before Cavin hit an RBI groundout to second.

Sophomore Kelsey Montgomery kept the inning going with an RBI single through the right side to plate Carpenter and give the Sycamores a 2-0 advantage.

In the top of the fourth, the Phoenix answered back, scoring two runs off three hits to tie the score.

Green Bay struck again in the top of the fifth, scoring two runs off three hits with two outs to take a 4-2 lead.

In the bottom of the seventh, the Sycamores loaded the bases with two outs but came up empty as a popout ended the contest.

Freshman Rylee Holland finished 2 for 4 for the Sycamores.

In the second game, pitching dominated the early part as neither team recorded a hit until the third inning.

In the top of the fourth, the Sycamores’ offense came to life when senior Shelby Wilson drew a one-out walk. After a flyout, Cavin hit her inside-the-park homer to center field to put the Sycamores ahead 2-0.

The roundtripper was the first of Cavin’s college career.

Western Kentucky responded in the bottom of the fifth by scoring six runs, only three earned, to take a 6-2 lead. The Hilltoppers added one more run to their lead in the bottom of the sixth to make it 7-2.

The Sycamores got runners on in the top of the seventh but could not score and fell for the second time Saturday.

The final tournament game for ISU (7-5) against Green Bay was canceled due to a forecast of severe weather for today. So the Sycamores will return to action Friday for the USF-Under Armour Invitational at Clearwater, Fla.
