Offense Silenced by Grenadiers
Wilmore, Ky. – Asbury couldn’t get the offense on track as they were swept by Indiana Southeast on Thursday night 3-1 and 3-0. The Eagles managed only seven hits the two games combined.
Asbury (13-5, 6-2 KIAC) pitchers Kelsey Robinson and Maris Harreld each threw complete games and dropped their records to 6-2. Robinson gave up 14 hits in game one but stranded seven IUS (18-10, 6-0 KIAC) runners on base. Harreld allowed only eight hits in game two and didn’t give up any runs until the sixth when IUS brought in all three.
The story of the games was the lack of offense as Southeast pitchers Kayla Duke and Kelsey Everett silenced one of the best offenses in the KIAC. Asbury’s lone run came in the seventh inning of game one as Maris Harreld hit her first career home run.
Asbury won’t play again until Tuesday April 6th at Berea at 5:30 p.m. The Eagles now sit in second place in the KIAC and will play IUS again in New Albany on April 16th.
