Softball Winning Streak Reaches Nine Games

Game One: Arkansas Tech 4, Washburn 2 A last-chance rally sent Arkansas Tech to a 4-2 victory over Washburn in Wednesday’s first game. The first four Ichabods hitters in the bottom of the first inning reached base, and two of them scored to give Washburn an early 2-0 edge. Golden Suns relief pitcher Sydnee Clark (7-2) came on with no one out in the bottom of the first and did not allow a run the rest of the way, allowing three hits and striking out four over seven innings of work. Kambri Hill put Arkansas Tech on the board with a solo home run in the top of the second. Washburn was able to maintain its 2-1 lead until the top of the seventh and final inning. The first two Golden Suns to come to the plate were retired before pinch hitter Samantha Herweck sparked a rally by drawing a walk. Alicia Lowrey doubled to send Herweck home with the tying run. Shanna Davidson’s RBI double drove in the go-ahead run and Ashley Anderson set what proved to be the final score with an RBI single. Clark worked around an error to hold the Ichabods scoreless in the bottom of the seventh. Game Two: Arkansas Tech 12, Washburn 6 Four home runs helped Arkansas Tech prevail 12-6 in game two of its Wednesday doubleheader with Washburn. Lowrey was 3-for-3 with two home runs and four runs batted in. Chelsea Reeves was 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs, while Whitney Robinson went 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBIs. Miranda Dupree also drove in two runs for the Golden Suns. Arkansas Tech starting pitcher Victoria Huie (9-3) allowed six runs, two of which were earned, on eight hits. She worked six and one-third innings. Kelsie Barker came out of the bullpen to get the final two outs.]]>
