Pitt State Softball Falls to Nebraska-Omaha

Updated:

PITTSBURG--The Pittsburg State Softball team lost both games of a doubleheader to one of the MIAA's top teams on Saturday (April 2) afternoon at the PSU Softball Complex. The Gorillas lost game one 12-0 in five innings and fell 7-4 in game two.

UNO scored one in the top of the opening frame one game one. Leadoff batter Katelyn Hinton was hit by a pitch, stole a base, moved to third on a sacrifice and scored on a ground out to second.

The Lady Mavs did not get their first hit in the game until a double by Lindsay Slocum in the fourth. That would be all the team would need as they tacked on four runs on four hits for a 5-0 lead.

The UNO hitting continued in the fifth with seven runs on seven hits for the final 12-0 score.

Pitt State had four hits in the game. The Gorillas were able to get runners to third twice in the game, but could not bring them home.

Tiffany Brown started and finished the game for the Gorillas. She went our innings and gave up five runs on three hits, four walks and a hit batter. Her record moves to 4-10 on the year. Hilary Erbert pitched one inning, giving up seven runs on eight hits.

Beth Haley went the distance for UNO, improving to 12-3 on the season.

UNO opened the second game with four runs in the top of the first.

Pitt State added its first two runs of the doubleheader in the bottom of the first. Mannie DeCastro led off the inning with a base hit. She was put out at second as Brenna George reached on a fielder's choice. Kreslee Ketcham blasted a home run to centerfield to narrow the UNO lead to 4-2.

UNO made up for those two runs with two more runs of their own in the top of the second to go up 6-2. The team stretched the lead to five runs with one more run in the fourth.

Pitt State reduced the lead to 7-4 in the bottom of the sixth. DeCastro led off with a double the ricochet off the fence in right center. With one out Ketcham drove a ground ball up the middle t o bring her home. Ketcham advanced to second on a passed ball, then scored on a Katelyn Birchfield base hit that hugged the right field line.

The Gorillas continued to cut into the UNO lead in the bottom of the seventh. Breanna McCracken led off with a base hit. Brown came in to pinch run for her. Erin Eddy drove a base hit down the right field line that moved Brown to third and a throwing error by the Lady Mavs' right fielder brought her around to score. Pitt State was not able to push another run across ending the game with a 7-5 Lady Mavs' win.

Pitt State travels to Wichita on Monday to play a doubleheader with Newman. Game one starts at 3 p.m.
