On Wed. Apr. 21 the Bulldog softball team traveled to Jamestown, North Dakota to verse the Jamestown Jimmies in a doubleheader which resulted in a loss for the Bulldogs after the first game with a score of 3-1, but they found a win in the second game with a score of 4-2.
It was a battle of the pitchers as junior Camry Moore fired away against Jamestown’s Kat Miska. Moore only allowed three runs to score off of seven hits and had zero walks and two strikeouts. Moore pitched for a total of 6.2 innings.
The Jimmies were the first to score in the third inning which had the Bulldogs following along in the fourth inning. Moore hit a triple run batted in, to right-center field bringing in senior Jenessa Jarvis to score first for the Bulldogs.
Finding two more runs in the seventh inning, the Jimmies would take the win.
Freshman Jerzi Rowe started in the circle and pitched a total of five innings. Rowe struck out two batters and only allowed two runs on seven hits. Moore would take over to pitch in the last two innings.
In the first inning, Moore would reach a base off of a fielder’s choice. Senior Tori Homolka hit a single to left field which would let Moore reach third base and score at home to due an infielder error by the Jimmies. The Jimmies earned their first run in the second inning and would only score once more in the fifth.
Sophomore Caitlyn McGarvie and junior Regan Karel each had back to back runners batted in singles to extend the lead for the Bulldogs 4-2, in the top of the fifth inning. The Bulldog’s defense kept the Jimmies at only two runs to end the game.
The Bulldogs will host all weekend and honor the seniors on Sat. Apr. 22 in the games against Mount Marty University at 1 and 3 p.m. They will then host Briar Cliff University on Sun. at 1 and 3 p.m. as well.
