In four games this weekend, the Cowgirls gave up a single run.
The Oklahoma State softball team defeated Tennessee State 5-0 and Texas A&M 2-1 on Sunday at the Reveille Classic in College Station, Texas. It’s the second time the Cowgirls beat each of those teams this weekend, also beating the Tigers and Aggies on Friday.
OSU moves to 10-4 on the season.
Here are recaps from Sunday’s games.
Oklahoma State 5, Tennessee State 0
In two games against the Cowgirls this weekend, the Tigers didn’t score a run.
Kelly Maxwell continued her dominant form, throwing another complete game shutout. OSU’s ace allowed no runs off two hits while walking one and striking out 13. The closest Tennessee State came to scoring was in the first inning when Peyton Fointno had a two-out single before Kayli Mothershed walked. But Maxwell got out of trouble with her third strikeout of the frame.
On the season, Maxwell has faced 123 batters — 67 have struck out.
The Cowgirls got on the board in the first inning when Kiley Naomi hit a leadoff single, stole second, advanced to third on a passed ball and scored off a Julia Cottrill sacrifice fly. Naomi then had an RBI in the second inning when she tripled to right-center, scoring Morgan Wynne.
Taylor Tuck drove in two runs in the third inning with a single to right. Then Chyenne Factor had the final RBI of the day with a solo home run, her fifth round-tripper of the young season.
Oklahoma State 2, Texas A&M 1
Down a run, the Aggies had the bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth, but Miranda Elish got out of the jam with a strikeout.
It was one of 11 strikeouts Elish threw against the Aggies, going a full seven innings in the circle where she allowed on run off four hits while walking five. In a tight game, Elish left six Aggie runners on base.
The winning run crossed the plate in the sixth inning. Tied at 1, the bases were loaded with two outs for Naomi. The Cowgirls’ senior shortstop singled to right field, allowing Hayley Busby to score. That set up Elish’s three-stranded bottom of the frame.
In the seventh, Elish struck out Koko Wooley, forced Haley Lee to groundout to third and struck out Makinzy Herzog to end the game.
