MSU Softball Drops A Pair

Midwestern State couldn't silence the Central Oklahoma lineup as the Bronchos claimed wins of 9-5 and 10-0 Wednesday afternoon at Mustangs Park.

MSU fell to 10-9 on the season and open Lone Star Conference play with a three-game set against Eastern New Mexico Friday and Saturday at Mustangs Park. The single game Friday begins at 3 p.m. while the first pitch for Saturday's twin bill is set for 1 p.m.

Midwestern rolled out to a 5-2 lead powered by junior second baseman Carey Campbell, who drove in two runs through the first three innings as the Mustangs legged out 10 of their 11 hits in the first three frames.

But UCO reliever Amanda McClelland shut MSU down over the last four frames to keep the Bronchos in the game.

Central Oklahoma got a three-run homer by Kayce Raines and Nathalie Timmermans followed with a solo shot in a four-run sixth inning to put the Bronchos up 6-5. UCO tacked on two more in the seventh.

Freshman Lindsi Glenn (9-6) took the loss in the opener allowing nine runs - eight earned - on 16 hits with four strikeouts and two walks.

Central Oklahoma's Racheal Steverson weaved a three-hit shutout in Game 2 to improve to 5-2 on the season.

Powered by homers by Megan Whitmire and Timmermans, the Bronchos posted a run in the first inning, four in the third and five in the fifth.

Junior outfield Courtney Bingham collected hits in both games to up her season average to .532. The right fielder has a four-game hitting streak.

Bingham joined Elena Bennett and Nicki Duff with two hits in the first game while Bingham, Kim Jerrick and Lisa Licata accounted for MSU's safeties in Game 2.
