Cobras Fall in Doubleheader Against Catawba

HARTSVILLE, S.C. – The Coker softball team lost a SAC doubleheader to Catawba on Thursday (Mar. 20).

In game one Coker scored four runs in the second inning to take a 4-1 advantage.  Catawba would then go on to score one in the third and three in the fifth to take a 5-4 lead, but Coker responded with a run of their own to tie the game at 5-5. Unfortunately for the Navy and Yellow, a sixth inning run would eventually give Catawba the 6-5 game one victory as Coker could not score in the final two innings.

Logan Cox led the attack for Coker in game one with a homerun and two RBI.  Carely Bailey would contribute a double with two RBI as well, while Sydney Weatherford also tabbed an RBI. 

Cox (1-2) would be tabbed with the loss, after going two innings giving up one run on two hits.

The bats went cold for the Cobras in the first four innings as Catawba jumped out to a 3-0 lead in game number two.  Coker would send a run across the plate in the fifth, but not before the Indians sent in four more runs to make the score 7-1.  Catawba would then add three more runs to the scoreboard in the top of the sixth, while Coker could only manage two runs to finalize the score at 10-3 in favor of Catawba.

Cox (1-3) would also get the loss in game two, after giving up seven runs on 10 hits in five innings of work. 

Coker will hit the road this Saturday (Mar. 22) to face Lincoln-Memorial in a SAC doubleheader.  Game number one will start at 1:00 p.m., followed by game number two at 3:00.
