Midwestern State earned a split for the second consecutive day against Great American Conference competition Monday afternoon at Sully Anderson Field.
 
The Mustangs took a 9-3 loss to Ouachita Baptist in Game 1 before routing the Tigers 9-1 in six innings in the nightcap.
 
"We're very inconsistent with our hitting right not, but that will come around as we keep playing," MSU coach Brady Tigert said.
 
The Mustangs return to action next weekend at the Texas A&M-Kingsville Invitational where they will play Southern Arkansas and Texas A&M International on Friday, Southern Nazarene and Southeastern Oklahoma on Saturday and Southern Arkansas again on Sunday.

Game 1

Ouachita Baptist clubbed No. 20 Midwestern State with three long balls to take a 9-3 win in Game 1 Monday afternoon at Sully Anderson Field.
 
OBU junior outfielder Megan Askew went 3-for-4 and delivered the decisive blow on a second inning grand slam to give the Tigers an early 4-1 lead.
 
Ouachita Baptist piled on the runs in the fourth inning on starting pitcher Rayn House's two-run double to push the lead to 6-1.
 
The Mustangs drew first blood in the top of the first when junior outfielder Elena Bennett drew a walk, stole second, advanced to third and scored on a passed ball.
 
But the Tigers were able to get to freshman starter Brenna Hennan (0-1), who allowed six earned runs on six hits in four innings. The Burkburnett product struggled with her command as she walked four and hit three batters before giving way to Christina Roosmalen in the fifth inning.
 
House took a no-hitter into the sixth inning for OBU before Courtney Bingham and Mallory Mooney broke up the bid with consecutive singles then came around to score on Kim Jerrick's two-run double to pull MSU within 6-3.
 
Ouachita Baptist struck for three more runs in the sixth inning on back-to-back homers by Bailey Sanders - a two-run shot - and House.
 
House moved to 1-0 allowing three runs - two earned - on four hits while issuing four walks and striking out two.
 
Bingham, Mooney, Jerrick and Carey Campbell accounted for each of MSU's four hits.

Game 2

Lindsi Glenn hurled a three-hitter to lead Midwestern State to a 9-1 win over Ouachita Baptist in Game 2.
 
"She threw it very hard and fought through a blister from yesterday," Tigert said. "She threw very well. She just keeps learning and gaining confidence."
 
The true freshman from Headlton, Okla. fanned three and walked one and nearly notched her first shutout of her career as OBU managed a controversial run on a rundown for the third out of the second inning.
 
Offensively, the Mustangs raked OBU pitching nine runs paced by freshman shortstop Kelley Schaefer and sophomore designated player Courtney Ford.
 
Schaefer went 3-for-4 driving in a run on a double in the fifth inning before chasing home two more on a single in the sixth.
 
Ford followed Schaefer's fifth inning double with her first career homer to give MSU a 5-1 lead.
 
The Mustangs struck first with unearned run in the first inning as Courtney Bingham reach on a leadoff walk, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt and scored when Kim Jerrick reached on an outfield error.
 
MSU answered the Tigers' controversial tying run with a go-ahead tally in the top of the third on the strength of a Mallory Mooney RBI-single to plate Bingham for a 2-1 lead.
 
Mooney finished the day 2-for-4 with a pair of RBIs as Midwestern finished with nine hits.
 
OBU starter Alli Frakes took the loss to fall to 0-1, permitting four earned runs on nine hits. She walked three and fanned three.
