After struggling with two losses against Tarleton the day before, the Rambelles made a major comeback on March 28 at Mayer Field with a sweep, scoring 2-1 and then 4-2 in that day’s doubleheader.

The wins put the Rambelles at 13-5 this season.

“I was proud of the way they bounced back, especially the two pitchers,” Travis Scott, ASU head softball coach, said. “They both struggled yesterday, and to bounce back today was big for us.”

Brandy Marlett, pitcher, struck out five and walked two during the first game. She also held Tarleton back to just a single hit while facing well over 20 batters.

It was Megan Granado, catcher, who led the game off with a double and later scored because of a dropped fly ball.

“With the wind blowing in, it was hard to score runs today,” Scott said. “They had some chances to score early in the game, but our defense helped out.”

It was at the bottom of the third that Rambelles were able to add another run.

Madison Greenwell, outfielder/ pitcher, stole second base after singling up the middle while Tina Cisneros, infielder, hit a groundrule double and allowed Greenwell to score, which extended the lead to 2-0.

At the start of the second game, the Rambelles did not wait long to take the lead and had three runs in the first inning.

Kenedy Urbany, pitcher, hit a double to right field and brought in Greenwell for the first run of the second game. Camry Weinheimer, catcher and outfielder, hit a single to right field and brought in two more runners to make the score 3-0.

The Rambelles held Tarleton down, allowing no hits until the fourth inning.

Tarleton finally scored in the fifth and sixth but the Rambelles were strong in not allowing them to take over the game. Greenwell finished the game going 4 for 4 with one RBI and another run scored.

“Ultimately it comes down to players wanting to play and having that desire to be out here,” Scott said. “I think our team is pretty close to figuring that out.”

The next game is set to take place in Wichita Falls for a LSC four-game series with Midwestern State starting April 3.
