The cold and rainy weather did not stop fans from coming out March 1 to watch the Rambelles sweep the Texas A&M-Kingsville Javelinas.

“I thought both teams played well despite the weather,” Travis Scott, ASU head softball coach, said.

A&M-Kingsville was in the lead 2-1 at the top of the fourth inning. Unfortunately, it was a fielding error that occurred in which A&M-Kingsville was able to make that score, but ASU did not let that bring them down.

After their fielding error, the Rambelles dominated the rest of the game with no slowing down. Pitcher Kenedy Urbany put in work when it came to their hitters and struck out five Javelina batters.

In order to work on regaining the lead, the Rambelles took over during the bottom of that very same inning when Kelly Johnson, pinch runner, scored on an error from the Javelinas to tie up the game, while Camry Weinheimer,catcher/outfielder, crossed the plate on a run batted in single from outfielder Rachel Moore.

Fast forward to the bottom of the sixth inning and the score was sitting at a 4-2 advantage for the Rambelles.

Micherie Koria, infielder/ outfielder, bunted for a single to take an even bigger lead of the inning, and used all of her power on a grounder to the short stop to score from third base.

The final score of the game was 5-2.

Moving on to game two, the Rambelles started out with the lead, thanks to Urbany in the second inning and her completely solo home run.

A&M-Kingsville loaded up the bases with two outs and Brandy Marlett, pitcher, struck them out for the second straight inning as they moved on to the third.

It was in the sixth inning that the Rambelles went and took it all, with an incredible score of 8-0, giving the Javelinas no chance to score.

“Kenedy and Brandy were really good,” Scott said. “It was nice to finish the day 2-0 in conference.”

The Rambelles are currently ranked at number six overall in the Lone Star Conference and are working to continue rising to the top.

They will take on Eastern New Mexico University on March 6-7 in Portales, New Mexico before heading back to San Angelo and playing St. Mary’s University at home in Mayer Field.
