MSU Softball drops close 3-1 decision to Kentucky

April 27, 2012 —

Junior Katie Pfost notched five strikeouts, but gave up two home runs, as the Morehead State softball team dropped a close 3-1 decision to Kentucky at the UK Softball Complex on Tuesday.

MSU falls to 12-32 on the season, while Kentucky improves to 24-26. Pfost (4-13) suffered the setback in the six-inning effort. Rachel Riley (6-7) earned the win for the Wildcats.

UK took an early 2-0 lead after two innings, highlighted by an Alice O’Brien homer off the right field foul pole.

The Eagles tallied their only run in the top of the sixth as junior Adrena Anderson reached on an error by the Wildcat third baseman. Anderson trotted home on a sacrifice fly from junior Elizabeth Wagner.

Kentucky added an insurance run in the bottom of the inning, as Emily Jolly hit a bomb to left field for the second Wildcat homer of the game.

Anderson, junior Kayla Ashbrook and freshman Kara Arceneaux registered hits for the Eagles.

Kara Dill went 2-for-3 plus a run for the Wildcats, while Ginny Carroll added an RBI.

The Eagles return to the road for their last conference trip of the season, as they face off against Tennessee State in a three-game series this weekend. MSU and the Lady Tigers will play a doubleheader on Saturday at 2 p.m. ET, followed by a single game on Sunday at 2 p.m.
