Game One: Tech 5, UAM 1 Victoria Huie pitched a complete game to lead Arkansas Tech to a 5-1 win over UA-Monticello in the series opener on Saturday. Huie (11-9) limited the Cotton Blossoms to one run on seven hits. She struck out seven batters over seven innings of work. Whitney Robinson went 2-for-3 with three runs batted in for the Golden Suns. Tech's Cassady Haworth and Natalie Magie added two hits apiece. Game Two: UAM 7, Tech 4 Kali Piha went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBIs to lead UA-Monticello to a 7-4 victory over Arkansas Tech in Saturday's second game. Siarra Gomez hit her 12th home run of the season in a losing effort for the Golden Suns. UAM starting pitcher Katie Slaughter (11-5) allowed four runs on five hits over seven innings to collect the win in the circle. Game Three: Tech 8, UAM 0 The combination of Victoria Huie's arm and Whitney Robinson's bat figured prominently in an 8-0 Arkansas Tech win against UA-Monticello on Sunday afternoon. Huie (12-9) tossed a three-hit shutout and Robinson went 3-for-4 with three RBIs for the Golden Suns. The game was stopped after six innings due to the mercy rule. Game Four: Tech 3, UAM 2 Amy Kilpatrick's RBI single in the bottom of the fourth inning proved to be the game-winning hit in a 3-2 Arkansas Tech victory over UA-Monticello in the series finale on Sunday afternoon. Tech starting pitcher Rachel Keeton (3-5) made sure the Golden Suns' one-run lead stood up by limiting the Cotton Blossoms to no runs on one hit over the final three innings. In all, Keeton allowed two runs (neither of which were earned) on five hits over seven innings. Siarra Gomez was 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBIs. The homer was Gomez's 13th of the season. She is now one home run away from tying the Arkansas Tech single-season school record, which was set by Hayley Hudson when she hit 14 home runs for the Golden Suns in 2011.  ]]>
