SAMANA AND HILDEBRAND PACE TIGERS TO GAME ONE WIN BOWLING GREEN, Kent.--Junior Emily Samana drove a 1-0 pitch over the fence in left center in the top of the seventh to propel Tennessee State (18-30) to a 1-0 win over Western Kentucky in game one. The run was all junior pitcher Candace Hildebrand needed as she threw a two-hit shutout against the Hilltoppers (24-24). Hildebrand (9-11) did not allow a hit through four innings, but surrendered back-to-back singles to start the bottom of the fifth inning. The Tigers shut down the Hilltoppers as Hildebrand struck out the next two batters and received help from junior centerfielder Diana Clifford who made a great diving catch in shallow left center off the bat of Sam Cronk. Game two will begin at 4:05 p.m. Tennessee State at Western Kentucky (Game 1) Apr 25, 2006 at Bowling Green, KY (WKU Field) Tennessee State 1 (18-30) Player AB R H RBI BB SO PO A LOB ------------------------------------------------------ Nira Robbins ss.......... 4 0 0 0 0 1 1 4 2 Heather Ebersole 2b...... 2 0 0 0 1 1 1 4 0 Diana Clifford cf........ 3 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 Leena Worrell 3b......... 2 0 1 0 1 0 0 2 0 Lauren Smoot pr......... 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Candace Hildebrand p...... 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 1 Emily Samana 1b.......... 3 1 1 1 0 1 12 0 3 Melanie Cruz rf.......... 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Erin Finneran c.......... 3 0 1 0 0 0 6 0 0 Amanda Buhler lf......... 3 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 Stephanie Kemme dp....... 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Totals................... 26 1 4 1 2 5 21 12 6 Western Kentucky 0 (24-24) Player AB R H RBI BB SO PO A LOB ------------------------------------------------------ Bailey Rolfs ss.......... 3 0 0 0 0 1 2 2 0 Jennifer Brooks rf....... 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Shelby Smith 1b.......... 3 0 0 0 0 2 8 0 0 Rebecca Horesky 3b....... 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 4 0 Becky Bishop cf.......... 3 0 1 0 0 0 2 0 0 Alana Towns lf........... 3 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 Adrienne Lathrop p....... 2 0 0 0 0 1 0 3 1 Sam Young c.............. 1 0 0 0 0 1 6 1 0 Amanda Ford-Feitz ph.... 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 Sam Cronk 2b............. 2 0 0 0 0 0 2 0 2 Totals................... 24 0 2 0 0 6 21 10 3 Score by Innings R H E ----------------------------------------- Tennessee State..... 000 000 1 - 1 4 1 Western Kentucky.... 000 000 0 - 0 2 2 ----------------------------------------- E - WORRELL, L.(16); Rolfs(12); Towns(2).
