The crowd looks on as Jade Strother, sophomore infielder, slides home and Madison Greenwell, senior outfielder, makes it to third after Bailey Wallace, junior infielder, hits and makes it to first. The Belles had seven runs at the bottom of the fifth in game one.

The women’s softball team won both of its games with five inning run rule victories 8-0 against the St. Edwards University Hilltoppers on Thursday just before the firework show.

The Rambelles won their 17th and 18th straight wins on the season, giving them a record of 19-1.

Head Coach Travis Scott said he thought they did a lot of things well.

The team scored on 16 runs on 26 hits and limited St. Edwards to zero runs on seven hits.

In the first game, senior Amanda Ramage ended the game with a single that scored the two final runs for the 8-0 run rule.

Senior Morgan Hill pitched her 10th victory of the season by holding the Hilltoppers to three hits and striking out three in 5.0 innings.

In game two, the Belles went in early, making it 2-0 after senior Danae Bina hit a single to left field.

Junior Taylor Fogle got a two-run home run, making it 4-0 after three innings.

Senior Brandy Marlett pitched the start of the game and only allowed two hits through the first three innings. Marlette got her eighth win of the year and struck out one, only giving up two hits.

"I was proud of the way we pitched and played defense," Scott said.

Junior Taegan Kirk ended the game with a double that brought in two runs for the 8-0 run-rule victory.

"You have to start in the circle. Morgan Hill and Brandy Marlett were both really sharp, and Maykayla Corbin was about to get the last two outs in the fifth," Scott said. "We wanted more work for her and Meagan Hill, but we went out and run-ruled St. Edwards in the bottom of the inning."

Scott said it’s a good situation to have, but he had wanted to give his pitchers more time on the mound.

"But I’m not going to complain about scoring runs," Scott said.

Scott said Madison Greenwell had a big day, as did Taylor Fogle.

"She [Fogle] hit the ball really hard, and that’s what we were looking for out of her," Scott said.

Scott said he was proud of the way the girls represented themselves and Angelo State.

"When you don’t allow a run, you’re not going to lose," Scott said.

Scott said the fireworks were a lot of fun after the game, and they were thrilled they got to put on the show for their fans.
