MSU Roundup: Glenn Pitches Mustangs Past ACU

Midwestern State's quest for a ninth consecutive winning season remained intact Friday as Lindsey Glenn allowed just a pair of unearned runs to lead the Mustangs to a 5-2 Lone Star Conference win over Abilene Christian here Friday afternoon.
 
The freshman from Healdton, Okla. worked a five-hitter and matched a season high with five strikeouts while upping her season mark to 19-8.
 
MSU, which improved to 24-23 on the season and to 14-11 in league play, can clinch a winning ledger with two more wins over Abilene Christian for a Senior Day twin bill Saturday at Mustangs Park. First pitches are set for noon and 2 p.m.
 
The Mustangs built a 5-0 lead through the first three innings highlighted by a two-run single by junior first baseman Christina Roosmalen in the first inning while Courtney Bingham and Mallory Mooney drove in runs on a double and a sacrifice fly respectively in the third inning.
 
Abilene Christian struggled before getting to Glenn with three hits in the fifth inning taking advantage of a Midwestern error to score two unearned runs on a Courtney Flanary single up the middle to pull within 5-2.
 
But the Mustangs flashed their leather in the sixth making three outstanding defensive plays. Bingham pegged out pinch hitter Kara Stutesman from right field to first base on a liner to begin the frame before second baseman Carey Campbell and third baseman Mallory Mooney speared a pair of line drives to end the inning.
 
Sophomore catcher Kim Jerrick and junior center fielder Elena Bennett paced MSU's seven-hit attack with two safeties each to pace the Mustangs' offense.
 
Peyton Mosely allowed five runs - four earned - on six hits in three innings to take the loss and fall to 11-7 on the season while Caitlyn Crain followed with three innings of one-hit relief.
