Victoria Pederson left third base and raced toward home plate as Georgia Southern shortstop Macy Coleman dropped the ball on an easy fly out. The excitement couldn’t be beat and neither could ULM in that moment as they picked up their first home win of the season.
The Warhawks (7-30, 3-11 SBC) took on the Eagles of Georgia Southern in a doubleheader on Friday. ULM won the first game, 14-13, but the Eagles took the second game, 9-1, in five innings.
The Warhawks are led by All-Conference performer Sydney McKay, who currently ranks second in the league in hitting with a .421 batting average and broke the ULM all-time hit record for softball players this past week.
Georgia Southern got off to a hot start in the first game and scored four runs – three on a three-run blast by Coleman – to take a 4-0 lead. The Warhawks quickly answered with five runs in the bottom of the first, and eventually built a 13-4 lead through the end of the fourth inning.
The Eagles came all the way back to tie the game thanks to three runs in the fifth inning, then four in the sixth – three coming on another three-run blast.
Hannah Farrell then delivered a two-run single in the top of the seventh to tie the score at 13. But the Warhawks scored the winning run in the bottom of the seventh on an error.
The excitement was short lived, though, as the bats went cold in the second game of the doubleheader seeing the Warhawks record just two hits and one run in the defeat.
ULM will travel to Ruston on Tuesday to take on Louisiana Tech before heading to Arlington, Texas on Friday for a three-game stretch against UT-Arlington.
