MOUNT VERNON, Ga. – The Stillman College Softball team wrapped up its first road trip of the Southern States Athletic Conference season on Saturday afternoon, heading to Mount Vernon, Georgia to battle the Barons of Brewton-Parker College. The Tigers battled, but they came up short in both games.
Brewton-Parker (4-18, 2-8 SSAC) tallied runs early in game one and the Stillman (7-15, 0-8 SSAC) offense was unable to get going as BPC took the games by scores of 10-2 and 8-2.
The Barons scored first, plating three in the bottom of the opening inning, but Stillman got on the board in the top of the second when Karlee Kincaid tripled and scored to cut the deficit to 3-1. BPC tallied twice more in the second, and again in the third to build a 6-1 lead before Stillman’s Quanesha Presley doubled and scored in the fifth frame. BPC, though, scored four times in the bottom of the sixth inning to end the game on the run-rule with a 10-2 final margin.
Natalie Hardy (3-7) tossed a complete game for BPC to earn the win, while Stillman’s Elisabeth Boso took the loss. Hardy allowed two runs on five hits in six innings of work, she walked one and struck out four. Boso (2-5) gave up four runs in just more than one inning of work, though she only allowed two hits and one walk in the appearance.
Stillman opened the scoring in game two when a pair of errors led to Reynolds crossing the plate with two away to give Stillman the 1-0 lead. After Brewton-Parker scored a pair in the bottom of the second to take the lead at 2-1, Hampton singled, and Taylor Roland doubled her home to tie the score at 2-2.
From that point on, though, BPC controlled the game. The Barons scored the final six runs of the day, and they pulled away to the win, 8-2.
Rebecca Edins (1-6) was credited with the pitching victory for BPC, as she gave up two runs, one earned, on three hits in seven innings of work. She walked two and notched three strikeouts. Boso (2-6) was charged with the loss. She yielded three runs on three hits in two-thirds of an inning.
Hampton, Roland, and Brogden had the only hits for Stillman, though Reynolds did walk and score a run.
Stillman will return to action on Tuesday, March 23, when they step out of SSAC play to welcome the Pioneers of Crowley’s Ridge College (8-8) for a double-header at 2 p.m
