Miners softball drops pair to Colorado State
El Paso, TX — The struggle continues as the UTEP softball team fell to Colorado State during a Saturday doubleheader, losing game one 14-0 in five innings and 7-2 in the second game at Ram Field.
The Miners (12-26) recorded one hit in game one, an Alanna Leasau single to leftfield in the fourth inning. Kayla Black was the only other base runner when she was walked in the third inning. The Rams (21-9) jumped on the Miners with five runs in the first and four more in the second inning.
In game two, Kawehiokalani Netane blasted her third home run of the season. It was a two-run shot to left field that also scored Leasau, who was walked prior. The shot made the score 5-2, but Colorado State answered with two insurance runs in the sixth inning to seal the victory.
The two programs will finish the series on Sunday at 12 p.m. MT at Ram Field.
