SHREVEPORT, La. – The Ladies fell in game one, 6-0, before the Mountaineers used seven unearned runs in the fifth inning of game two to break a 2-2 tie as Centenary (10-13, 4-8 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference) lost to Schreiner (18-7-1, 9-3 SCAC) 10-2 in six innings to drop a doubleheader Saturday afternoon, March 24.

Centenary scored both its runs on the day thanks to two-out hits by junior Wendy Gillet. Scoreless in the bottom of the first in game two, junior Payton LeBlanc reached on an error and advanced to third after a pair of groundouts. Gillet then singled up the middle to put the Ladies on the board.

Starting in the circle for the third game in the series, junior Nichole Aldridge (5-6) took the loss in game two, allowing 10 hits and nine runs (two earned) in 4.2 innings of work.

Tied at two after four, Schreiner scored seven unearned runs to take the 9-2 lead. Ashton Vazquez reached on an error to begin the frame before a single and a walk loaded the bases. Samantha Cordon singled the centerfield to break the tie. With one out, Bailee Arellano flew out to centerfield for a sacrifice fly to give the visitors a 4-2 lead. An RBI single by Kaylee Atchley and a fielding error scored two before a three-run shot by Alyssa Hernandez capped the inning.

Schreiner added a single run in the sixth to complete the 10-2 victory.

Atchley went 3-for-3 in game two to complete a perfect 6-for-6 day at the plate, while Hernandez’s three-run shot was her first home run of the season. She also scored another run in the game.
