CHICKASHA – The Drovers split with Texas Wesleyan in a Friday afternoon doubleheader at Bill Smith Ballpark in the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma’s annual Pink Out Cancer game.
The Drovers (21-17, 3-9) got into some hot water in the first game, giving up seven runs as the Rams (17-12, 10-6) hit around the lineup in the third inning. One more TWU run came in during the fourth inning before USAO scored its first run; Hannah Neill, pinch running for Brooke McLeod, scored on a Dani Warren bunt.
CHICKASHA – With a month and four conference series left in the season, the Drover baseball team is in good shape to finish the season strong, senior Cody Rieger said.
“We got off to a good start and we hit a little rough patch but things are looking up,” he said. “We are looking to get back on track and make a good run here at the end of the season and into the conference tournament and hopefully, the national tournament.”
Rieger, who is batting .316 on the season, said he just focuses on the ball when we steps up to the plate.
