No fairy tale ending
KINGSVILLE, Texas – The Cameron University softball team’s magical postseason run ended on Friday with a 6-5 loss to No. 3 Texas A&M-Kingsville in Game 2 of the NCAA Division II South Central Super Regional.
After falling in the opener of the best-of-three series on Thursday, the Aggies entered Friday needing a pair of wins over the top-seeded Javelinas to keep their season alive.
In the opening frame, it seemed as though CU was on track to force a game three as they scored four runs on four hits in the bottom of the first. Khmari Edwards started things with an infield single and then stole second for her 27th stolen base of the year. Breley Webb then walked putting a pair on for Callie Busby. The CU backstop came through with a double to right center, driving in both Edwards and Webb for the first runs of the game.
Kylie French came up with C. Busby on third, as she advanced on the throw after her double, and bunted her in on a sacrifice squeeze that ended up with her on first base via a fielder’s choice. Yesterday’s top hitter, Abbey Warren, notched her fourth hit of the series with a double to left field to put a pair on again for the Black and Gold. After a Raley Long strikeout, Bethany Hines delivered a clutch infield single that brought home French from third.
The Aggies had a chance for more in the first with the bases loaded and leadoff hitter Brenna Busby coming to the plate, but she flew out to center to end the inning.
