FORT WORTH, Texas  --  The Southwestern Assemblies of God University women’s softball team produced only three hits in each game of Monday’s doubleheader against Texas Wesleyan University. It only took one to earn the Lady Lions a split of the twinbill in Cowtown.

SAGU (6-14 / 1-5 in SAC) won the first game, 2-0, before falling in the nightcap, 8-0.

Sophomore third-baseman Kelsey Coburn (Lewisville, Tx / Lewisville HS) walloped a two-out, solo home run in the top of the first inning to give SAGU the only run they would need in game one. It was a towering blast that sailed deep down the leftfield line.

She smacked one here a year ago as well, a frozen rope to leftfield.

Monday's longball backed a pitching gem by freshman right-hander Hannah Lee (Hardinsburg, Ky / Breckinridge HS ). She scattered five hits, walking one while striking out six.

The win improved her record to 3-5. Her control was vividly on display on a cool, sunny spring day. She has now walked only seven batters all season. Lee has fanned 42.

Three times in the game she escaped situations where the Lady Rams (5-6 / 1-1 in SAC) had a runner in scoring position.

In the first, with a runner on second with one out, she retired the next two batters, one on a called third strike, the other on a pop-up to shortstop Blayr Huff (Keller, TX / Liberty Christian HS ).

The third was more challenging. Runners were on the corners with one out, when Lee coaxed one to pop-up to catcher Heather Wyatt (Lake Jackson, Tx / Brazoswood HS ). The ensuing Lady Ram grounded out.coburn-at-txwes

The final jam came in the bottom of the seventh.

A leadoff double set the stage. Lee bowed up by sitting down the side in order. The first two on a grounder to Coburn and a fly to Lynette Riggs (Leupp, Az / Flagstaff HS ) in rightfield.

She got the final out when the batter was caught looking at a third strike.

SAGU’s second run was produced in the second inning.

Amber Belisle (Roseville, Cal / Whitney HS ) took a free pass with one out, and advanced a base when Amber Gignac (Houston, Tx ) singled. Riggs was hit by a pitch to load the bases.

That brought up Feliciana Maldonado (Victorville, Cal / Victor Valley HS ). The sophomore managed a walk that forced Belisle across the plate for a 2-0 lead. It would hold up for the remainder of the seven inning game.

The shutout by Lee was the second in the three year history of the SAGU softball program. A year ago Ashley Abair (Kennedale, Tx / Kennedale HS) fired a complete game, two-hit shutout against Hillsdale College. SAGU won that game with a 4-0 verdict.

In the second game on Monday, Wesleyan dominated, jumping to a 7-0 lead after just two innings.

The Lady Lions dropped two fly balls in the outfield in the first that led to four runs. The Rams finished with 12 hits and took advantage of three more SAGU errors to win easily.

Maldonado (0-3) was the pitcher of record. She took the loss, yielding eight runs. Only four were earned. She allowed a lone walk and whiffed three.

Maldonado had one of SAGU’s three hits. Gignac and Brittney Johnson (Tahlequah, Ok / Tahlequah HS ) also rapped singles.

The Lady Lions have a four game series this weekend in Shawnee, Oklahoma when they take on No. 19 St. Gregory’s University (11-3 / 1-1 in SAC).

Friday’s doubleheader begins at 1:00pm; Saturday starts at noon.
