CHICKASHA – No. 10 Oklahoma City was too much for the young Drovers, who fell to the Stars in both games of the Thursday afternoon doubleheader at Bill Smith Ballpark.
Both teams battled hard for a first run, which didn’t come until the fourth inning with an Oklahoma City run. Immediately after, OCU’s star pitcher Lily LaVelle hit a two-RBI homer, sealing the 3-0 lead and resulting victory.
SAC Pitcher of the Week Neesha Sorrell pitched the complete game, throwing four strikeouts.
Things fell apart for the Drovers in the second game, which they lost 11-1.
After giving up three runs off the top, lead off hitter Skyler Nichols singled to right field. She scored a few batters later off an RBI double by Liz Agpalo. It was the Drovers’ only run.
The losses give the Drovers a 20-16 overall and 6-6 SAC record. They take on Langston University for a doubleheader beginning at 2 p.m. Monday at Bill Smith Ballpark.
