BATON ROUGE—The Centenary softball team struggled offensively on the second day of the Easton Tiger Classic. The Ladies totaled seven hits and did not score a run in a pair of losses to Middle Tennessee State (6-0) and #8 LSU (9-0).

 

In the first game of the day, Middle Tennessee State took a 2-0 lead in the first inning on a two-run homer and the lead held until the seventh inning. The Blue Raiders posted four runs in the last inning to close out the game on four hits and an error.

 

Ryan Thacker (0-2) was saddled with the loss for the Ladies after allowing five earned runs in seven innings while striking out four batters. Allison McClain went 2-for-3 at the plate for Centenary as Emerald Doria, Haley Bassett, Allison Shepperd, Micah Rhodes, and Dana Davis all collected hits in the loss.

 

LSU used 10 hits over four innings to score two in the first, one in the third, and six in the fourth inning en route to the 9-0 win. Pitcher Tiffany Garcia tossed a no-hitter in the run-rule shortened five-inning game against the Ladies, striking out five while walking three.

 

Kelsey Greeson (0-2) surrendered seven earned runs in four innings for Centenary.

 

The Ladies finished the Easton Tiger Classic with an 0-4 mark, and as a result were eliminated from playing in the championship rounds on Sunday. Centenary will next take to the field in its home-opener on Wednesday against the University of Texas-Tyler at 5:30 p.m.
