USD Softball Falls To Iowa State 9-1


Iowa State freshman Kasey Simpson hit her first two collegiate home runs and drove in seven in leading the Cyclones to a quick 9-1 win against South Dakota Tuesday at Cyclone Sports Complex.

Kaylee Bosworth also went 3-for-3 for the Cyclones (19-15), which outhit USD 10-5. She also homered in the fourth inning, her fifth of the year, that made it 6-0.

South Dakota (22-18) scored on a throwing error in the top of the fifth inning. The Coyotes had runners aboard in each at bat, but two ground ball double plays and a base-running error kept Iowa State pitcher Shannon Mortimer away from a big inning. Mortimer struck out four and walked two.
