Tough breaks

Leading for much of game, CU allows pair of home runs in elimination contest

SAN ANGELO, Texas  Angelo State used a pair of home runs in the top of the seventh to stun Cameron, 4-3, Saturday night in an elimination game in the NCAA Division II South Central Regional being played on the Rambelle's home field.

The Aggies took an early 3-1 lead in the first inning and nursed it through the bottom of the sixth, but several times the Aggies had threats but couldn't add any insurance. For much of the game that didn't seem to be a problem as CU junior pitcher Kelsey Watson was rolling along, setting the hosts down for five straight innings.

And, things were still looking good when she fanned leadoff batter Micah Spearman. But Micherie Koria singled up the middle, bringing up the big hitters in the lineup. First Dana Dunn unloaded on a Watson pitch for a two-run home run and in a flash the game was quickly tied.

Then, the next batter, Rita Moore ripped a solo shot to right for the lead. Watson buckled down and got the next two outs and with the Aggies being the home team, they still had life.

The bottom of the seventh started well with a Macy McKay single to left and then the Aggies got a break when Misty Dooley's ground ball was booted at third. Breezy McComas, the hero of an earlier 3-2 win over St. Edward's that extended the season, was unable to get down the bunt to advance the runners and eventually she grounded into a force play that wiped out McKay.
