A split success

Wooldridge, RiverHawks go 1-1 in key a crucial MIAA doubleheader.


Emporia State 5, NSU 1 (first game)

Cayce Coleman’s scoreless innings streak came to an end and so did NSU’s eight-game winning streak. It was the RiverHawks’ first setback since a 6-5 loss to Fort Hays State on March 22.

NSU and Emporia State traded scoreless frames for five innings until Vogel hit a solo home run to lead off the sixth inning. When the ball cleared the right-center field fence, it was the first run scored against Coleman since Southwest Baptist plated one in the fifth inning on March 30. Coleman’s streak of not allowing a run ended at 18 innings.

Coleman took the loss for NSU, giving up five runs (four earned) on seven hits — four of which came in the sixth and seventh innings.

That’s when the Hornets did all their damage.

To add to Vogel’s solo shot, the Hornets added a run in the sixth inning on Katie Huffman’s suicide squeeze, which scored Amanda Self.

A lightning delay — despite the skies clearing — halted the game during NSU’s half of the sixth inning, which was another scoreless frame for the RiverHawks.

Emporia State piled on in the seventh inning on Vogel’s two-run double to center. Williams would follow with a run-scoring single up the middle.

Vogel finished the game 3 for 4 with three runs batted in for the Hornets.

Karley Schmelzer picked up the victory for Emporia State in the pitching circle. She improved to 20-6 while issuing only one run on five hits.

NSU’s lone run came on Navada Campos’ solo home run in the seventh inning. The RiverHawks’ brief rally came to a halt when Madison Reed grounded out with runners on first and second base.
