Softball uses offensive spark to sweep Millersville

Shippensburg University’s softball team achieved a double victory against Millersville on Saturday at Robb Field, with scores of 6-1 and 7-6 respectively, in a Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Eastern Division matchup.

In the first game, junior pitcher Alicia Ball (Woodstock, Va./Central) secured her tenth win of the season for Shippensburg (18-6, 7-3 PSAC East) with a complete game, striking out six and allowing only one run. The Raiders overcame an early 1-0 deficit with a two-run homer by sophomore Caitlyn Martell (Morrisville, Pa./Pennsbury) and added four more runs in the fourth inning.

The second game saw Shippensburg bounce back from a 5-run rally by Millersville (12-13, 3-5) in the sixth inning, clinching the win with a walk-off RBI single by freshman Reagan Bauman (Hatfield, Pa./Pennridge). Junior Katelyn Minney (Lititz, Pa./Warwick) was awarded the win in relief, pitching 1.2 scoreless innings.

Overall, the Shippensburg lineup produced 18 hits across both games. Taylor Myers (Fayetteville, Pa./Chambersburg Area) led the team, going 4-for-7 with two RBIs and two runs scored. Martell was the top run producer with four RBIs and a home run, while Bauman contributed three RBIs, including the game-winning hit.

Shippensburg is scheduled to host Mansfield in another doubleheader on Tuesday, weather permitting.
