Early lead lost
|Rachel Meagley, Miranda Pedersen|
DSU Hornet pitcher Rachel Meagley allowed just one earned run today, Sunday, March 10, facing 22 batters through 5.2 innings against the Kent State Golden Flashes. She struck out three. But it wasn't enough in this closely contested game that ended in an extra inning.
It also was a tough loss to take as the Hornets had grabbed the early lead.
In the bottom of the 2nd inning, Chloe Oro drove home Jennifer Fischbach with a single up the middle that left Miranda Pedersen standing on third. Next, Oro swiped second as Pedersen stole home.
