CSB: USF Drops Twin Bill To Minot St.

CSB: USF Drops Twin Bill To Minot St.

The USF softball team struggled to connect at the plate in their doubleheader with Minot State on Sunday afternoon as they combined to bat 0.188 in the two games. The Cougars recorded just nine hits compared to the 22 hits that they gave up to the Beavers in the games at Sherman Park.
A bright spot for the Cougars in the two losses came from Erin Scott who ended the day going 5-of-7 at the plate (0.714), recording more than half of the Cougars hits on the day.
Minot State 3, USF 0
Cold bats by the Cougars doomed them in the first game of the doubleheader against Minot State as USF went 4-of-27 (0.148) at the plate in the 3-1 loss.
The Beavers took the lead early when a Melissa Bell double to centerfield allowed Jordan Grant to score.
After keeping Minot State from scoring in the second and third innings, the Cougars gave up two runs in the top of the fourth. First a single to centerfield for the Beavers coupled with a fielding error by the Cougars resulted in Ali Cygan crossing the plate. In Minot State’s next at bat, Alyssa Cornejo hit a single to centerfield that brought home Katie Backes to put the Beavers up by three runs.
The loss was credited to Amanda Walters who pitched seven innings, allowing five hits and one earned run while striking out five Beaver batters.
Mindy Lorimor picked up the win for Minot State as she allowed only four runs, recording four strikeouts in her shutout victory.
The Cougars scored zero runs on four hits and recorded four errors in the loss.
Minot State 10, USF 1 (6 Innings)
The offensive struggles by the Cougars rolled over into game two of the day as USF batted 0.238 at the plate in a 10-1 loss against the Beavers.
USF looked to shake their offensive woes early in the second game as they had runners on second and third base with only one out. The Cougars got on the board first when a Bailey Bouman sacrifice fly to centerfield brought Shannon Daly home to give USF an early 1-0 lead. However, a Britni Broussard ground out to the pitcher left the Cougars with only one run scored in the inning.
The Beavers answered back in the second inning when a single up the middle by Alyssa Cornejo brought home Katie Backes.
Minot State extended their lead in the third inning when Jenn Dixon sent the ball out of the park for a three-run home run to put the Beavers up by four runs.
In the top of the sixth, the Beavers pushed their lead to nine runs when a throwing error by Taylor Jonas allowed Rachel Burdette to score.
Bailey Bouman was charged with the loss as she gave up 17 hits and 8 earned runs in her 6.0 innings pitched. Bouman also struck out four of the Beaver batters.
The win went to Jen Dixon of the Beavers who gave up only five hits and one earned run in her 5.0 innings pitched.
USF will take to the road next as they travel to the Twin Cities to take on Concordia-St. Paul. First pitch is set for 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. at the Savage Sports Center.
