(Neb)-CSC Scores 1 Run In Metro State Weekend Sweep
DENVER - Metro State-Denver silenced the Chadron State hitters for the second straight day on Sunday, sweeping the Eagles by identical 3-0 scores after taking a doubleheader Saturday 1-0 and 3-1.
In Sunday's first game, the Roadrunners made the most of only 3 hits...scoring in the 1st on a double and a sacrifice bunt and adding 2 more runs in the 5th with 2 singles, a passed ball on a strikeout, and a groundout.
The Eagles got only 2 hits...singles by Ellie Owens in the 6th and Allie Mason in the 7th - along with 2 walks and a hit batter. The only time they had 2 runners in the same inning was 7th as Leilani Niccum was hit by a pitch and reached 2nd on Mason's hit with 2 outs.
Metro's Dharby McGee struck out 7 in getting the win while Jessica Jarecki's tough-luck season continued as she fell to 7-12 despite giving up just the 3 hits and 1 earned run with 5 strikeouts and no walks. The Eagles have been shutout in 8 of Jeracki's losses.
Game 2 saw a little more hitting as Metro collected 7 and the Eagles 6, but the run production was the same. Metro again played small ball for 2 of its runs.
They scored in the 1st with a bunt single, wild pitch, stolen base, and ground out, then added another in the 3rd on a single, passed ball, and error. Their final run in the 4th came from a single and double.
Niccum accounted for 3 of the Eagles 6 hits, all singles, with Owens, Lauren Renk, and Alyssa Geist getting the others. Megan Horn took the loss as she struggled with her control, striking out just 1 while walking 4, hitting 1 batter, and throwing 2 wild pitches.
The lost weekend leaves Chadron State 11-24 on the year and 9-16 in the RMAC, dropping them to 9th...percentage points behind Colorado-Colorado Springs and a game behind Black Hills and Adams State. The Eagles host Colorado School of Mines in a 4-game series this weekend.
