Bruner, Doyle, Jimenez lead Cats’ bats

Final home series coming April 9-10

WAXAHACHIE, Texas -- The Southwestern Assemblies of God University women’s softball team concluded their first homestand with a doubleheader loss to Huston-Tillotson University today at the new campus ballpark.

The Lady Lions scored the game’s first run in the opener before Tillotson answered with nine unanswered tallies and coasted to an 11-2 victory.

Six first inning walks combined with three singles led to seven runs and the Lady Rams took the second half of the twinbill with a 12-0 win. HTU added five more runs in the fourth without the aid of a hit. Three errors and a passed ball allowed the burgundy-clad visitors to secure the win.

A three-game home series against Texas College (0-17, 0-9 in RRAC) has been rescheduled for the Monday and Tuesday after Easter, April 9-10. Game times will be announced this week. A lack of eligible players led the Steers to forfeit the original series.

According to Head Coach Tim Grant, Southwestern will honor players who are concluding their careers on “Senior Day,” April 10.

The match-up with TC will feature near-evenly matched ballclubs and will be a fight for eighth place in the nine-team conference. SAGU is 26-189, while the Steers are 22-200 in run differential.

SAGU is currently 1-19 for the season and 0-17 against teams in the Red River Athletic Conference. Tillotson, from Austin, Texas, has won four consecutive contests. They improved their ledger to 8-20 and are 6-6 in league action. (Complete RRAC standings below)

Game One Re-Cap

The Rams only outhit Southwestern 11-8, but took advantage of fundamental mistakes and a combination of six walks, four hit batters and seven passed balls and wild pitches.

HTU controlled the tempo with timely singles and forced breakdowns in the defense with a number of bunts that illuminated flaws in the young Lions infield. They scored in five of the seven innings.

The Lions scored first.

In the bottom of the first, sophomore Theresa Ballard (Austin, Tx / Homeschool) walked and dashed around the bases to score on a double in the gap by junior Kelsea Svochak (Ft. Worth, Tx / Bethesda HS).

SAGU’s eagerness at the plate, swinging early in most counts, allowing the Rams to escape without the risk of walks. The squad didn’t get more than one hit in an inning until the fifth, when they trailed 8-1.

Senior outfielder Gabby Bruner (Peaster, Tx / Peaster HS), Ballard and freshman Kyla Burke(Red Oak, Tx / Red Oak HS) loaded the bases on singles with two outs. They were stranded when Svochak (SWOH-chak) grounded out to second base.

Freshman Kasey Poovey (Nevada, Tx / Community HS) stroked a shot to right for a double in the sixth. She scored on a base knock by sophomore Iliana Jimenez (Crystal City, Tx / Crystal City HS).

Bruner (like BREW-nuhr) and Burke were on board thanks to singles in the bottom of the seventh but each were eliminated by fielder’s choices.

Bruner and Jimenez led the hitting attack with 2-for-3 efforts. Ballard and Poovey went 1-for-3 while Svochak and Burke had one hit in four at bats.

Burke supplied a big play with a tag out at the plate, while Bruner made three running catches in left field.

Freshman Bree Lawrence (Waxahachie, Tx / Waxahachie HS) and Svochak had good grabs in the outfield, while freshman Chelsey Doyle (Seattle, Wa / Shorecrest HS) turned in a pair of big throw outs from the hot corner.

Poovey’s ability to glove infield throws, some requiring a major-league stretch to snare the throws, helped the defense hold HTU to 11 runs in a game in which they had 23 baserunners.

Sophomore Shannen Davis (Kremlin, Ok / Kremlin-Hillsdale HS) went the distance for the Lions. The righthander hurled all seven innings using 136 (14-19-26-17-21-8-31) pitches.

Kellie Trinidad, a sophomore righty, collected the win for the Lady Ewes. She needed only 62 (12-8-9-7-10-5-11) offerings. Four innings required nine or fewer pitches to retire the side. In the sixth she faced five Lion batters, surrendered a run, and fired only five pitches in the process.

Game Two Revisited

Roxanne Rodriguez handcuffed the Lions on three hits for the second day in a row (read the Friday summary below). The junior right-hander allowed just two runners to advance as far as second base in a 67 pitch (7-17-22-9-12) outing. She struck out two and walked a pair.

The Lions battled to overcome a quick 7-0 deficit after the maroon platoon parlayed a half dozen free passes, a stolen base and six passed balls or wild pitches. The first four runs passed the dish without the need of an RBI.

Jimenez, Doyle and Bruner each swatted base hits in the second, fourth, and fifth respectively.

Jimenez lined her hit to left-center after walk to Poovey, giving Team Lioness runners on first and second with one out. Pop flies to third and rightfield ended the scoring bid.

On board with a one-out smash to right-center, Doyle was erased on a Poovey fielder’s choice to second and a fly to center.

Bruner rip-snorted a drive up the middle leading off the fifth. Lawrence followed with a looping liner that the rightfielder, Amanda Pecina, webbed with a dive to her right, doubling up Bruner at first.

The only other chance for Southwestern to score was in the third.

Ballard fanned but earned first when the catcher failed to hang onto the final swing. Swift a-foot, she swiped second. After a groundout, Svochak sent a hopper to the shortstop, April Atkins, who rang her up at first. An alert first baseman, senior Lydia Urbina, gunned down Ballard’s ill-fated attempt to take third base on the play.

Ballard displayed the same uncommon, extra display of hustle that Bruner did in the first game (when she raced in from left to cover an unguarded third base). Ballard took a throw at second and caught a stray Ram off the bag.

She faked a throw to third, where Burke awaited, and chased the runner toward the base. She got her in the back with a swing tag, but the ball came loose on contact. It was tough break, but an accurate call. 

Freshman Lauren Johnson (Waxahachie, Tx / Waxahachie HS) pitched all five innings on a warm, breezy, sun-filled day. The freshman hurled 107 (45-12-9-22-19) underarm missiles and was touched for only seven singles.

Friday’s Review

Rodriguez hurled a 3-hit shutout in Tillotson's 8-0 triumph. She sat down the quick-swinging Lions on only 75 (13-14-10-10-10-11-7) pitches, walking one and striking out six.

Doyle rapped a pair singles to right-centerfield and blasted a line-drive up the middle that Rodriguez nabbed during her 2-for-3 performance.

The animated Doyle, the team’s #4 hitter, was forced to leadoff three times as the top three in the line-up all went 0-for-3.

After each of her hits, Rodriguez settled down to get the next batters in succession.

Poovey reached base in the fourth with two outs on a five-pitch walk. Jimenez then loped a soft liner to second base on the next pitch to end the threat.

Lawrence was the lone other SAGU player to register a hit, a leadoff flair beyond the first baseman in the bottom of the third. The ensuing three batters went down in order on four pitches.

The Purple Pride’s21 outs came on seven flies (one turned into a double play), six whiffs, and seven ground balls.

Three-Game Totals

Bruner batted .500 in the series, with three hits in six trips to the plate. Doyle and Jimenez had three hits in eight at bats.

No one else had more than one hit as the more experienced Rams outhit SAGU 33-14 in the three outings.

The Lions’ final three games of the season are slated for April 13-14 in Muskogee, Oklahoma against Bacone College, presently 13-17 and 8-5 in the RRAC.
