Win streak continues as Southeast Missouri State softball downs Georgia Tech

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

The Southeast Missouri State softball team pushed its winning streak to three games with a 6-1 road victory over Georgia Tech on Tuesday in Atlanta, Georgia.

Freshman Rachel Anderson continued to impress with her bat, as she finished a double shy of the cycle, while pitcher Madeline Krumrey threw a complete game to lead the Redhawks (14-5) past the Yellowjackets (8-16) at Mewborn Field.

Anderson was 3-for-4 with three runs scored, a home run, a triple and three RBIs. She currently leads all Ohio Valley Conference hitters in batting average.

Krumrey (8-2) retired the first eight batters she faced and finished with a line of one run on two hits with five strikeouts and two walks in seven innings of work.

Southeast's Parker Bandy went 1-for-1 with three walks and a pair of RBIs.

Emily Anderson (1-7) took the loss for Georgia Tech, giving up four runs -- all earned -- on four hits with three strikeouts and two walks in two innings pitched. Brooke Barfield gave up two runs on two hits in five innings of relief. She struck out seven and walked five.

The Redhawks jumped on top when Anderson tripled home Brooke Rheinecker in the top of the first inning before scoring on a wild pitch.

In the third, Mykaela Arellanes worked a leadoff walk, stole second and then crossed home plate when Anderson sent a pitch over the right field wall, giving Southeast a 4-0 advantage.

It was Anderson's third home run of the season.

Southeast is back on the field today at Kennesaw State, with first pitch scheduled for 4:30 p.m.
