OPSU Softball Drops Doubleheader By Laura Nelson on 04/26/2013 Goodwell, Okla.—The weather was warm and sunny with little wind for the first pitch at 1 p.m. on Friday at the Aggie softball home doubleheader against Texas A&M International, but by the fourth inning, wind-driven light rain and gusty winds made conditions miserable, yet the Dustdevils didn't let it affect their play as they won 12-2 and 11-0.
TAMI scored a single run in the first inning, and OPSU got on the board in the fourth when singles by Bristol Ashlock and Juuna'e Dai'Re drove in two runs for a 2-1 OPSU lead, but the Dustdevils put the game away with an 11-run fifth inning. Starting pitcher Brittany Scruggs allowed 11 hits, struck out three and was given the loss.
With the wind still howling at the start of game two, TAMI pitcher Kyndall Reaves tossed a complete game shutout, giving up seven runs and striking out one. OPSU's starting pitcher A'lex Koonce took the loss, scattering 10 hits and striking out two over 3 innings. Emily Vasquez, Julie Cross, and Ashly Duin were all 2-2 at the plate and Vasquez had six putouts.
The final game of the series on Saturday is also the final game of the season for the Aggies. Prior to the first pitch at noon, the Aggie seniors will be honored and recognized for their contributions.
