Rambelles softball endured a two-game loss on March 27 against Tarleton.

The start of the first inning showed a promising beginning for ASU, as they challenged Tarleton’s offense head on. This fell through once Tarleton secured the first run of the game. Tarleton then made another two runs, setting the score at 0-3. The inning was brought to a close after Kenedy Urbany, sophomore pitcher, snatched a ball directly from Tarleton’s batter.

Tarleton brought their A-game, and that is to be expected from a rival school, Vincent Salazar, a student in the crowd, said.

Tarleton went on to score three more runs at the top of the fourth inning, making the score 0-6.

Megan Grando, senior, got an out in the fifth inning and closed off Tarleton’s attempts to score again.

“Megan was an absolutely phenomenal force,” Travis Scott, head coach for Rambelles softball, said.

Ambra Hill, junior, set up to bat during the bottom of fifth, where she got a hit and led the Rambelles to gain their first run. Hill was also placed on third base as she prepared to gain ASU’s second run.

“I definitely felt that was one of the more exciting plays of the night,” Salazar said.

The crowd chanted “Bring Ambra home,” as they voiced the motivation felt by the previous play. Brook Mangold, freshman, allowed Hill to make a run for home.

Tarleton had a shorted lived sixth inning, giving the Rambelles more opportunities to try and even out the score. This attempt came after Katlyn Herzog hit a home run, leaving the game at 3-6 going into the last inning.

During the top of the seventh inning Tarleton secured their final run of the night. Despite efforts from ASU at the bottom of the seventh, the game ended with a final score of 3-7.

“We can’t come out here and struggle on day one of a four game series this year,” Scott said. “As a coaching staff we got to look at things that we might have to do differently to make sure we are ready for game one. Ultimately it comes down to players wanting to play and having that burning desire to be out here.”
