MC softball swept by Friends

By Steve Sell
April 19, 2014

WICHITA — It didn’t start well for McPherson College’s softball team on Friday against Friends and it never got any better.

The Bulldogs lost an 11-6 verdict in the first game, then were drubbed 18-0 in the nightcap to fall to 6-10 in the KCAC, 13-20 overall.

Mac trailed only 5-4 in the first game when the Falcons started to pull away. Mac did have 10 hits, including two homers by Amanda Darrow and another by Jenna Kaiser. Friends had five homers in the game, as the ball was flying.

Ariel McGee was 3 for 4 for Mac, while Darrow had two hits.

Kaila Atkinson took the loss.

The second game was nightmarish, with the Falcons erupting for 11 runs in the third inning. Mac was held without a hit as it was one of those games to forget for the Bulldogs.

Mac hosts Tabor on Tuesday. It will be Senior Day, with first pitch at 5 p.m. at Wall Park.

Hall delivers Lady Tigers to sweep

By Steve Sell
April 19, 2014

This was the kind of pitching that Central Christian College softball coach Chad Kerr envisioned at the start of the season.

Lady Tiger pitcher Kristen Hall delivered nothing but zeroes as CCC swept Oklahoma Wesleyan in a pair of spine-tinglers here Friday, 1-0 and 2-0.

Hall threw a three-hit, no-walk beauty in the first game, with the only run coming in the third inning by Ashly Westgarth on a Sydney Nelson sac fly. Hall struck out five and faced only four batters over the minimum.

Since she was so strong in the first game, she stayed on the mound for the second game and continued to flummox the Eagles. She again threw a three-hitter without a walk, this time striking out eight. 

For the two games, she threw 14 innings, allowing six hits, no walks and fanned 13.

Brooklynn Lemons and Dana Dean scored runs for CCC in the nightcap. Jenna Daniel was the hard-luck loser in both games for Oklahoma Wesleyan.

The Lady Tigers are on the field here today against Central Baptist, the top team in the MCAC. CCC is 7-11 in the MCAC and 14-30 overall.

First pitch is noon.

Baseball Tigers swept by Bellevue

By Steve Sell
April 19, 2014

BELLEVUE, Neb. — Central Christian College’s baseball team dropped a pair of games Friday to Bellevue.

The Tigers were right with the Bruins in the nine-inning opener, losing 5-3. Bellevue scored three runs in the seventh to take a 5-1 lead before CCC made it interesting in the eighth with a pair of tallies.

No Tiger had more than one hit. Lee Stoops and Clayton Lacher hit doubles. Alan Barker was the losing pitcher.

The second game was decided in the first inning when the Bruins scored nine runs as the kick-start to a 10-1 win. The Tigers’ Andrew Hightower threw 5 1/3 innings of quality relief, giving up only two runs.

Martin Guevara recorded two of the Tigers’ three hits.

Central is now 4-14 in the MCAC and 20-29 overall. It plays two more games against Bellevue today.
