Millersville Softball Takes Two against Bowie State Lady Bulldogs



MILLERSVILLE, Pa. - The Marauders of Millersville blanked the Lady Bulldogs of Bowie State 13-0 in game one and captured an 8-2 victory in the nightcap in non-conference softball action on Thursday afternoon.

After a scoreless 1st inning, the Millersville bats came alive in the bottom of the second, roughing of Bowie State senior pitcher Mariela Hernandez (Del Rio, Texas) for eight runs on six hits to take a cushy 8-0 lead.

The Marauders added five more runs to the scoreboard in the bottom of the 3rd inning to take a commanding 13-0 advantage and ended the game in the 5th inning by way of the NCAA 8-run mercy rule. Errors played are part in BSU’s game one setback as the Lady Bulldogs committed four.

Bowie State freshman Stefanie Ray accounted for the only Lady Bulldogs hit in game one, with a single in the top of the opening frame. Hernandez (2-8) faced 30 batters, gave up 14 hits but struck out two in the loss.

Game two of the twin-bill started pretty similar to game one. Millersville scored one run in the bottom of the first and added four more runs in their half of the 2nd inning to take an early 5-0 advantage.

The Marauders pushed two more across the dish in the 3rd inning before Bowie State senior Adria Lewis (Cumberland, Md.) belted a solo homer (her second of the year) in the top of the 4th inning to make the score 7-1 Millersville.

A Heather Lutz two-out double scored Brittany Smith all the way from first to increase the Marauders lead to 8-1 after four complete innings.

Neither team scored in the 5th inning but Bowie State’s Erica Atkins (Burtonsville, Md.) stroked a single to right field, scoring Hayley Flint (Mesa, Ariz.) from second and cut the Lady Bulldogs deficit to 8-2.

The Lady Bulldogs defense kept the Marauders (12-8) off the scoreboard the rest of the way but couldn’t add to their run total either.

Lewis paced Bowie State with two hits in game two while juniors Cassandra Clayborne (Damascus, Md.), Kiara Washington (Bowie, Md.), Megan Windsor (Upper Marlboro, Md.) and Atkins added one hit each.

The Lady Bulldogs (4-18) will host its home opener on Saturday (3/29) against Virginia State in a conference doubleheader beginning at 1 pm, weather permitting.
