MSU Softball Vs Cameron

Sophomore Taylor Bermudes punched a single up the middle to plate Katelyn Vinson with the winning run to cap a three-run comeback for a 6-5 win over Cameron in Game 2 Monday night at Mustangs Park.

With the win, the Mustangs salvaged a split with the Aggies who spoiled an MSU rally to take Game 1 8-4 in eight innings.

The series split keeps Midwestern's Lone Star Conference Postseason Tournament hopes alive.

MSU can qualify for the six-team tournament with a sweep of Texas A&M-Kingsville this weekend in South Texas as the Mustangs would move percentage points ahead of Texas A&M-Commerce for the final berth. MSU could also pass Tarleton State with a sweep of TAMUK and if the TexAnns are swept at 3-21 Eastern New Mexico.

The Mustangs faced elimination down 5-3 heading into the bottom of the sixth inning in Monday's nightcap, but sophomore Baylee Voigt pulled MSU to within a run at 5-4 with an run-scoring single to right field.

Midwestern continued the rally in the bottom of the seventh as junior Haley Howerton drilled a one-out double to the right-field gap before Vinson drew an intentional walk.

Senior third baseman Kelley Schaefer launched a deep fly ball to right field to advance Howerton before Katy Vandewater an 0-for-14 slump with an RBI single up the middle to to tie the game.

Bermudes then sent a roller up the middle which eluded Cameron shortstop Carly Allerheiligen's glove for the game winner.

Sophomore Erin Knox launched her sixth homer of the season on a two-run shot to center field in the second inning while Schaefer drove in the first run of the game with a single to left field in the first.

Schaefer drilled her seventh homer of the season in Game 1 as part of a 2-for-4 effort while driving in three runs as the as the Mustangs sent the game into extra innings after scoring three runs in the bottom of the seventh.

Howerton extended her hitting streak to eight games including seven multiple-hit games by going 3-for-4 in Game 1 and 2-for-4 with a double in the second game. She is hitting .533 (16-of-30) during the stretch with two doubles and six RBIs.
