TECH COMPLETES SWEEP WITH 2-0 WIN COOKEVILLE, Tenn.--The Tennessee State softball team fell to Tennessee Tech 2-0 to drop the OVC series three games to none. TSU (18-32, 3-17) could only manage a Leena Worrell hit off TTU (42-13, 19-2) pitcher Bonnie Bynum. The Golden Eagles used a lead-off double, a sacrifice bunt and a single in the second inning to take a 1-0 lead on pitcher Candace Hildebrand. TTU added another run in the fourth, but Hildebrand (9-12) would stop the bases loaded threat with a strike out of pinch-hitter Kristan Glover and forcing Jennifer Markham into a ground ball to Worrell for the force out at third. Tech would threaten again in the bottom of the sixth loading the bases on reliever Stephanie Kemme, but the freshman from New Albany, Ind., got Katie Sutherland to pop up to junior catcher Erin Finneran before striking out Markham. Bynum (25-8) faced the minimum 21 batters allowing a single to Worrell to lead off the second inning. Pinch runner Lauren Smoot would get doubled off of first on a popped up bunt attempt by Hildebrand. Tennessee State travels to Richmond, Kent. this weekend for a three game conference series versus Eastern Kentucky. Game times are set for 12 p.m. ET on Saturday and Sunday.
