Eagles Shutout in Losses
WILMORE, Ky. – Asbury collected only two hits in each game as they were swept by Campbellsville on Thursday 5-0 and 2-0. The Eagles have dropped four straight and are scoreless in each game.
Maris Harreld didn’t allow an earned run in game two, both runs scored after defensive miscues in the inning. In the third it was an error to lead off the inning that later led to a run and in the sixth the Tigers (20-10) scored again, this time after a dropped third strike and later a passed ball allowing a run to score. Harreld falls to 1-4 on the season despite an 0.91 ERA. The junior didn’t walk a batter and struck out four, allowing only four hits in the complete game.
The Eagles (5-15) had their best chance in the first inning as Mary Ann Warford led off with a walk and promptly stole second. But two strike outs and a fly out ended the threat and Asbury wouldn’t put a runner on second the rest of the game. Kelsey Robinson and Emily Ethington each singled to right for the lone hits of the game.
It was almost an entirely similar story for the Eagles offense in game one, only two hits and only in the first inning getting a runner into scoring position. Harreld singled with one out in the first and advanced to second on a ground out but was stranded. Robinson had the only other hit, a fifth inning single to left.
Robinson was also the victim in the circle of bad defense as the Eagles committed three errors behind her and also had one passed ball. Robinson fell to 3-7 on the season after allowing eight hits in seven innings and all five runs, only four were earned.
The Eagles are scheduled to play Oakland City on Saturday at 5 p.m.
