johnson-britt-at-swcuBETHANY, Oklahoma  --  Home Alone was a funny holiday movie about being left behind.

In Monday’s twinbill in a suburb of Oklahoma City, the Southwestern Assemblies of God University softball team failed to find the humor in leaving 16 runners on base.

Nine were stranded in a 3-2 setback to start a doubleheader that witnessed Southwestern Christian University sweep both games. The host Eagles rolled to an easy 11-3 win in the nightcap in which SAGU marooned another seven.

The Lady Lions lost their fifth straight and ninth in ten games to slide to 6-18. Their ledger against the competition in the Sooner Athletic Conference is now 1-9.

On Tuesday they will take on No. 3 ranked Oklahoma City University (16-1 / 6-0 in SAC) twice at 2:00pm and 4:00pm. The Stars will enter the day riding a 14-game winning streak.

They have held their foes to one run or less in twelve of their seventeen games.

SAGU was outhit by just 20-17, but the Eagles parlayed theirs into 14 runs. Team Purple scored five times.

GAME ONE

In the opener the Lady Lions took a 2-1 lead in the third inning and held it until the bottom of the sixth. SWCU (9-8 / 3-4 in SAC) tied the game with a walk, a stolen base and a double to deep left.

The top of the Lions order went silently in the seventh.

Hannah Lee (Hardinsburg, Ky / Breckinridge HS) did likewise, sitting down the Eagles 1-2-3 in the bottom of the frame, getting the last batter swinging.

SAGU’s eighth was similar to the other frames when they couldn’t manage a clutch hit.

Kelsey Coburn (Lewisville, Tx / Lewisville HS) walked and advanced on a one-out single to third by Heather Wyatt (Lake Jackson, Tx / Brazoswood HS). A sacrifice bunt moved them both into scoring position. The next SAGU batter fanned to end the rally.

Having dodged a bullet, the Eagles struck for the game-winning run in the bottom of the eighth. A walk and an infield single set the table for a Chloe Wright sacrifice fly to Amber Belisle (Roseville, Cal / Whitney HS) allowed Katie Miller to tag at third and race home with the decisive run.

SAGU scored both of their runs in the same inning.

Feliciana Maldonado (Victorville, CA / Victor Valley HS) got things started when she beat out a grounder for an infield single. She darted to third on a fielder’s choice by Brittney Johnson (Tahlequah, Ok / Tahlequah HS) that left her at first.

Maldo scurried across the dish on a wild pitch. Johnson raced home when Coburn stroked an RBI single to straight-away center. Wyatt hit a flair to shallow left to put runners on the corner before a groundout the third shutdown the surge.

Coburn, Wyatt and Lee had two hits apiece.

Lee (3-7) went the distance and absorbed a loss. She permitted only five hits and one walk in eight innings. She struck out six and surrendered three runs, one of them was unearned.

It was the third one-run loss for the Lady Lions this spring.

GAME TWO

Control of the second game was set quickly. Coburn ripped a single in the top of the first. But three groundouts snuffed out the threat.

The hosts jumped on SAGU starter, Maldonado, for four runs on six hits in the bottom of the first. The big blast was a 3-run dinger to left by Wynter Wind-Raghoebar, her first of the season.

They went on to rap 15 hits. The game was called on the eight-run mercy rule with two outs in the bottom of the fifth. All eleven runs were earned.

Maldonado fell to 0-4. She walked three and struck out four.

SAGU’s first run occurred in the second. Wyatt singled to right, stole second and eventually scored when Belisle stroked a hit up the middle.

Southwestern broke the game open with four runs in the fourth for a 9-1 advantage.

The Lions countered with a two-spot in the fifth.

Coburn walked and was forced at second on a Blayr Huff (Keller, TX / Liberty Christian HS) fielder’s choice. She came home when Wyatt powered a double into the right-centerfield gap.

Lee stepped up and lined an RBI single between left and center. Waved home, Wyatt rounded third and dashed to the plate.

The Eagles iced the outcome with two in the fifth. Back-to-back infield bunt singles and four stolen bases did the trick.

Coburn and Wyatt both accounted for two hits for the second game in a row, with the latter scoring twice.

Coburn was 4-for-6 in the doubleheader. Wyatt went 4-for-7. Lee had a 3-for-7 day.

Tuesday’s clash with the Stars will be a tall order. Hopefully for the Purple Pride, these Stars will not come out in broad daylight.
