OPSU Drops Two to ECU

By Laura Nelson on 04/10/2013 Ada, Okla.—The Oklahoma Panhandle State University softball dropped both games of the doubleheader against East Central University in Ada Tuesday afternoon, losing both games 9-1.

The Lady Tigers came out swinging in the first game, scoring seven runs in the first inning. They added two more before the Aggies finally chalked up their lone run in the fifth when Junna'e Dai'Re reached first on an error and eventually made it home when Brandi Heath hit a sacrifice fly. Starting pitcher Brittany Scruggs was credited with the loss, giving up 12 hits and striking out one.

ECU dominated the scoring immediately again in game two, racking up four runs in the first inning and four more in the third. Kaitlin McCool singled up in the middle in the fourth and advanced to second one a Julie Cross sacrifice bunt and then scored when Heath singled. Samantha Arledge pitched three innings and gave up 10 runs and struck out three. She was credited with the loss.

The Aggies return to their home field this weekend to play conference rival Newman University. The first pitch in Friday's doubleheader is scheduled for 1 p.m. and the single game Saturday also begins at 1. Don't forget, it's a big day of sports on Saturday with softball, baseball playing at noon, and the spring football game at 4! Everyone is invited to enjoy the free tailgate party with burgers and all of the fixings hosted by the President's Office from 2:30-3:45 p.m.
