TSU SOFTBALL LOSES TO EASTERN KENTUCKY
Saturday, April 23, 2005
NASHVILLE --- Tennessee State dropped the opening game of an Ohio Valley Conference series as visiting Eastern Kentucky broke open a close game with six runs in the final two innings en route to a 7-0 victory over the Tigers Saturday. The game had two rain delays and the second game of the scheduled doubleheader was postponed until Sunday. The teams will play a doubleheader beginning at noon. TSU (8-28, 2-14) spotted EKU (17-23, 7-9) a 1-0 lead in the first inning as Adriel Foxley reached on a three-base error and scored on a RBI single by Amy Mayrhofer. The EKU 1-0 advantage stood until the sixth inning when the Lady Colonels pushed across three runs with Alex Merrell's one-out double plating a pair of runs. EKU added three more runs in the sixth with a two-run double by pitcher Kelsey Anderson. TSU pitcher Kristina Blair (7-10) allowed seven runs, but only two were earned runs in taking the complete game loss. Nira Robbins had a lead off single in the first for TSU, but Anderson would retire 15 consecutive TSU batters before pinch hitter Brittani Phillips led off the sixth inning with a single. Leena Worrell led off the seventh with a single for TSU's other hit. Anderson (10-8) recorded seven strikeouts in recording her fifth shutout of the season. Foxley finished 3-4 with three runs scored. Merrell finished 2-3 with three RBI while Mayrhofer and Anderson each had two hits and two RBI.
