In tonight's tour of Texoma diamonds, MSU stretches its winning streak to nine games, the Burkburnett Lady Bulldogs clinch a district title, Petrolia's Lady Pirates score 37 runs in a doubleheader, Henrietta baseball wraps up district play with an 8-2 record and Garron Bates hits his sixth home run of the season as the Coyotes upend Denton Guyer 6-5.
Midwestern State's Kim Jerrick and Katelyn Vinson drilled two homers each to lead the 19th-ranked Mustangs to an 11-4 win over Texas A&M-Kingsville in Game 1 here Friday night.
The win was MSU's eighth straight win as the Mustangs improved to 36-12 on the season and to 13-7 in Lone Star Conference play.
Freshman pitcher Laci Belovsky weaved a one-hit shutout to key No. 19-ranked Midwestern State past Texas A&M-Kingsville 7-0 in Game 2 Friday night at Mustangs Park.
The Mustangs rolled to their ninth consecutive win to improve to 37-12 on the season while moving to 14-7 in Lone Star Conference play.
Senior second baseman Carey Campbell extended MSU's program best streak to 21 consecutive games with a home run when she drilled a two-run shot to left-field to key a four-run second inning outburst. It was the Albuquerque native's fifth long ball of the campaign.
And it proved to be more than enough cushion for Belovsky, who allowed only a two-out infield single to Bailey Offill in the second inning while improving to 21-7 on the season.
The Grangerland product notched three strikeouts on her way to a league leading sixth shutout of the season.
The No. 24 Midwestern State Mustangs upset the No. 19 Cameron Aggies 5-4 in the semifinals of the Lone Star Conference Championships Friday afternoon.
The Mustangs (17-5) won their sixth straight match since falling to the Aggies (20-3) earlier this season, and snapped Cameron's eight-match winning streak.
"I'm so proud of the way we played all the way across the lineup," said MSU coach Scott Linn. "We battled for every point and came through when we needed it."
The Mustangs won the match on the play of the bottom of their singles lineup, winning when freshman Austin Crawford, playing No. 6, outlasted the Aggies Dean Weigelt 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 for the deciding point.
"Austin showed great poise in turning around his match after dropping the first set," said Linn. "He really came through under pressure."
The Mustangs also got singles wins from sophomore Kacper Boborykin and freshman Franko Siljeg.
