Indiana State softball team loses twice

Southhaven, Miss. — The Indiana State softball team dropped two close games in the Blues City Classic on Saturday, falling 5-3 to UMKC and 3-0 to Nicholls State.

“We had a chance to win all four games,” ISU coach Shane Bouman said. “We have got to do the little things, we have got to pitch, play solid defense and get key hits. These are the games we have got to start winning to be a great team.”

In the first game, Indiana State rallied late against the Kangaroos of UMKC before falling.

Both teams led off the first inning with a hit-by-pitch and both runners came around to score to make it a 1-1 tie.

In the top of the fourth, the Roos jumped back out in front of the Sycamores when they scored a run of an RBI double to take a 2-1 lead. The Sycamores responded with a run of their own when sophomore Megan Stone led off the bottom of the fourth with a triple and scored off a fielders choice by freshman Kelsey Montgomery to tie the game back up at 2-2.

The Roos came back and scored one in the fifth and two in the seventh to take a 5-2 lead over the Sycamores.

ISU fought back with a seventh-inning rally, started off by a lead off double by freshman Paige Schreiner. Junior Morgan Allee then put runners at first and third with a single. The Sycamores then cut into the Roos lead off a RBI single by junior Shelby Wilson to score Schreiner and make it 5-3.

The Roos then loaded the bases when they walked Stone, but the Sycamores could get no closer as they stranded the tying run at second base.

Wilson finished the game 3 for 4 with an RBI, while freshman Halle Humphrey pitched a complete game for the Sycamores.

In Game 2, the Sycamores found themselves down early to the Colonels of Nicholls State and were never able to recover as they fell in their final game of the Blues City Classic by a final score of 3-0.

In the bottom of the first, Montgomery singled and moved to second on a fielding error before moving to third on a Wilson single. The Sycamores offense was unable to get on the board, however, as a strikeout and groundout ended the inning.

The Colonels came back with four straight hits to put two runs on the board and take a 2-0 lead.

Neither team was able to get much going offensively until the sixth when the Colonels added another run to their lead off a Sycamore fielding error to make it 3-0 Nicholls State.

The Sycamores could not rally after that.

Montgomery finished 2 for 3 at the plate for the Sycamores, while sophomore Ashli Scott pitched five complete innings in relief. She allowed three hits and struck out a season-high seven batters.

Indiana State is now 7-7 on the season.

We probably got as much as we could out of her and probably should have changed earlier so put that on me. We have a couple little things we can clean up and get a little better and we will be ready to go tomorrow.”
