Brandy Marlett, senior, winds up a powerful pitch. Marlett struck out eight players in the first game against Tarleton State.

The No. 4 ASU Softball team lost its series this weekend against the No. 20 Tarleton State University TexAnns.

The Rams lost the first game 3-6 on Thursday, March 29, and won the first game of the double-header on Friday 8-0 but lost the final game 1-2. 

The Rambelles ended the first game of the DH with a run-rule victory. Senior Brandy Marlett pitched and picked up her 15th win of the season. After the series, it was only Marlett’s second loss of the season. 

The Rambelles are 30-6 overall on the season and 14-4 in the Lone Star Conference play. 

The team recorded 17 hits in the doubleheaders and nine runs, while the TexAnns were held to eight hits on the day and scored only two runs. 

Head Coach Travis Scott said they played well in the series.

“Give Tarleton credit; they came into a place that is hard to win and got two.”

Scott said Tarleton did what they needed to do to win against the Rambelles.

“We were there, though,” Scott said. “We had our chances but couldn’t quite get the base hit that we needed, and that was the difference.”

Scott said he was happy with the way they bounced back in game two, especially with the energy they had. 

“Lots of positives that we can take from it, but we battled, and I was proud of that,” Scott said.

Scott said the team is still looking to a LSC Championship.

“A Lone Star Conference Championship is still there for us, as much as it may not seem like it right now,” Scott said. 

Scott said they still have to play Texas A&M Commerce, UTPB, Cameron University and Midwestern State University.

“Our destiny is in front of us,” Scott said. “If we can get on a role here and put a ton of wins together, it’s still available for us to try to win that thing, so that’s what we’re focusing on going forward.”

Scott said it’s been a tough stretch of games.

“Our teams can still battle and play well,” Scott said. “We should be ready to go next week.”

The Rambelles will be on the road next week to face Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls. They will be back at home on April 13 and 14 to face UT Permian Basin.
