MSU Softball: Pitching Leads Way In Sweep Of Cameron

Midwestern State rode the arms of Lindsi Glenn and Brenna Hennan to sweep Cameron 5-1 and 2-0 in Lone Star Conference play Tuesday afternoon at Mustangs Park.

The wins extended MSU's season best winning streak to six games as the Mustangs evened their season and conference marks at 20-20 and 10-10.

Midwestern travels to South Texas to take on Texas A&M-Kingsville in a three-game LSC series Friday and Saturday.

GAME 1: MIDWESTERN STATE 5, CAMERON 1

Freshman pitcher Lindsi Glenn scattered 10 hits and Carey Campbell highlighted a bit second inning with a two-run double to lift Midwestern State to a 5-1 win over Cameron in Game 1 Tuesday afternoon at Mustangs Park.

Glenn allowed three consecutive singles and forced in Cameron's lone run of the game with a walk in the second inning before settling in with two strikeouts and one walk to claim her fifth consecutive win.

MSU took advantage of a pair of walks before Campbell drilled a two-run double to the left-field gap in the bottom of the second then came around to score on Kim Jerrick's double to right-center field to push the advantage to 3-1.

The Mustangs tacked on a pair runs in the fourth on the strength of RBI singles by Courtney Bingham and Mallory Mooney.

Cameron had seven hits over the final five innings, but only one Aggie base runner would work its way into scoring position the rest of the way.

Elena Bennett and Bingham paced the Mustangs' seven-hit attack with two safeties each while Jerrick pushed her team-best hitting streak to six games with a double in the second inning.

Micah and Sonia Foutch accounted for six of CU's 10 hits with three apiece.

Cheyenne Brown took the loss for the Aggies to fall to 7-13 on the season allowing three runs on two hits with three walks in 1 2/3 innings. Former Burk standout Carrie Dilks allowed two runs on five hits over the final 4 1/3 innings for the Aggies.

GAME 2: MIDWESTERN STATE 2, CAMERON 0

Freshman pitcher Brenna Hennan weaved a four-hitter for Midwestern State's first shutout of the season in a 2-0 win over Cameron in Game 2 Tuesday afternoon at Mustangs Park.

The former Burkburnett High standout allowed a leadoff single to Misty Dooley and returned the next 14 hitters she faced before Sonia Foutch reached on a single up the middle with two outs in the fifth inning.

Cameron would post two more singles in the sixth inning including Dooley's second hit of the game and Drew Wright's single to left field but Hennan induced a soft fly ball to left field by Tara Martini to end the threat before retiring the side in order in the seventh.

It's the Mustangs first shutout of the season after leading NCAA Division II with 27 blankings in 2011.

Sophomore Kim Jerrick wasted no time in extended her season-best hitting streak to seven games with a leadoff single to left field in the first inning and scored when Courtney Bingham was caught stealing at second base to give the Mustangs a 1-0 lead.

Jerrick led off the third with a double down the left field line and scored on Bingham RBI single up the middle to push the lead to 2-0.

Jerrick and Bingham accounted for four of the Mustangs' six hits as Kelsey Hebert took the tough luck loss for the Aggies to fall to 4-7. Hebert allowed two runs on six hits in six innings.
