Cameron softball takes two from Eagles
After several games where the Cameron softball bats were just not ringing like they had been, batted balls were flying all over McMahon Field Wednesday as the Aggies coasted to a doubleheader sweep of Oklahoma Christian, 7-3 in the first game and 10-2 in the second.
The twinbill was scheduled Tuesday but delayed 24 hours by the gusty winds, straight out of the north. Wednesday, though, the temperatures were still crisp but the wind had died considerably but the Aggies knocked three balls out of the park, hit eight extra-base hits overall and scored 17 runs on 16 hits in the twinbill.
The big bats were needed in Game 1 as the Aggies made four errors, allowing the visitors to score three runs, just one of which was earned.
Starter Rylee Willmon moved to 11-6 with the win, allowing eight hits, three walks and fanning three. In the fifth inning with the Aggies holding a slim 4-3 edge, Willmon worked out of a bases-loaded two-out situation by forcing a pop up.
Annie Combs was the offensive player of note for CU in the first game, driving in three RBI on a pair of hits, one a double and the other a solo home run. Brenna Busby also homered with a runner on base.
Bethany Hines was the other Aggie with a multiple hit game and also got the save in the circle allowing no hits and striking out two in the final 1 2/3 innings.
