PSU Softball Splits Shutouts with Lady Rangers

Updated:

PITTSBURG -- The Pittsburg State softball team split shutouts with Northwestern OKlahoma State on Tuesday (March 19) at the PSU Softball Complex. The Lady Rangers won game one 1-0, but the Gorillas came back to take game two, 4-0.

Each team had only two hits in the game, a double and a base hit, the difference was the NWOSU's both came in the same inning. The Gorillas committed one error and the Lady Rangers, three.

In the top of the third, Megan Burditt was the first Lady Ranger player to reach base with a base hit to left. After a second out, Monica Jarmillo drove a double down the left line for the score.

Pitt State had a runner in every inning except the sixth, but couldn't string enough hits and Lady Ranger errors together to put up a run. Kreslee Ketcham had a base hit up the middle in the second and Jordan Bradshaw knocked a double to left center in the fifth.

Kyndel Shelburn took the loss in the circle to move to 5-3 on the year. The only time she allowed runners on base was in the third. She struck out seven batters.

Game two went much better for the home team. Though Northwestern Oklahoma State outhit the Gorillas, 5-4, The Lady Rangers did commit four errors that helped Pitt State with one of its runs. The remaining three Gorilla runs were all scored off solo home runs.

Bradshaw got the Gorillas started with a one-out homer to right in the first inning. It was her third of the season. Ketcham led off the bottom of the second with her fourth home run of the season. Riley Campbell followed suit in the fourth inning with a one-out home run to left.

Back-to-back errors by NWOSU in the fifth inning set the Gorillas up to score again. A fielder's choice put runners at the corners with one out and a sacrifice fly by Ketcham scored Cheslyn Mitchell for the final run of the game.

Kylie Harpst improved to 3-1 on the year with the win. She scattered five hits and struck out two Lady Ranger batters.

The Gorillas, now 13-7 overall, play host to No. 23 Winona State tomorrow (March 20) in a doubleheader at noon.
