Jerrick Leads MSU Past TexAnns, 5-3

Kim Jerrick connected on a leadoff home run and drove in three runs as Midwestern State knocked off Lone Star Conference leader Tarleton State 5-3 Friday afternoon at Mustangs Park.
 
The Mustangs and TexAnns close out the three-game league series with a doubleheader Saturday. First pitches are set for noon and 2 p.m.
 
Jerrick's leadoff blast to center field was her sixth homer of the season and staked MSU starter Lindsi Glenn to the early 1-0 lead.
 
Tarleton State's McKaylee Pittman highlighted a three-run, four-hit second inning with a three-run blast to center field to give the TexAnns a 3-1 lead, but Glenn would settle in the rest of the way to move to 14-10 on the season.
 
The southpaw from Healdton scattered four hits over the remaining five innings with three strikeouts and three walks.
 
Freshman shortstop Kelley Schaefer narrowly missed a home run with a rope off of the top of the fence in left-center field and had to settle for a long single to lead off the bottom of the second. She would eventually narrow the deficit to 3-2 while scoring on a wild pitch.
 
The Mustangs regained the lead with a pair runs in the fourth inning as Nicki Duff and Christina Roosmalen struck for consecutive singles to lead off the frame before moving to second and third on Lisa Licata's well executed sacrifice bunt.
 
Jerrick followed with a two-run single through the left side of the Tarleton infield to give MSU a 4-3 lead.
 
The Mustangs used the speed game to tack on an insurance run in the fifth inning after Mallory Mooney reached on a leadoff single to left field. Junior outfielder Megan Chartier came on to pinch run and immediately stole second base.
 
Duff drew a two-out walk and Chartier moved to third on a wild pitch before the Mustangs successfully completed a double steal to give Glenn a 5-3 edge.
 
Samantha Swanda took the loss for Tarleton State to fall to 15-4 on the season. The right-hander allowed five runs on six this with four walks and three strikeouts in six innings of work.
 
Jerrick paced MSU's six-hit attack by going 2-for-3 with three RBIs.
