Racer softball splits at Martin

MARTIN, Tenn. -- Murray State escaped a late threat and beat UT Martin 5-4 in the first game of an Ohio Valley Conference doubleheader Saturday before dropping the night-cap 6-4.

Murray State's Jocelynn Rodgers swatted a two-run homer in the first inning to cap a three-run frame in the opener. Ahead 4-1 in the third inning, MSU escaped a bases-loaded, no-out jam with only one run scoring. In the seventh with the Racers up by a run, UT Martin had runners on second and third but MSU escaped the jam for the 5-4 win.

Murray State's Jessica Twaddle was 4-for-4 in the game with a run, a double and a RBI, while Kaylee Ranburger was 3-for-4 with a run. Mason Robinson picked up her 18th win of the season in the circle by allowing two earned runs on 10 hits with six strikeouts and no walks in a complete game effort.

Game 2 was almost an exact opposite of Game 1, as this time it was UT Martin that jumped out to an early lead and had to turn away a late charge by MSU to preserve the win. The Skyhawks (26-12, 5-3 OVC) scored four runs in the first and one in the second to put the Racers down quickly.

Brenna Finck was 2-for-3 with a walk and a run to lead MSU (26-13, 3-4) in Game 2. Haven Campbell took the loss after allowing four runs, none of which were earned, on three hits and a walk over one full inning.
