Aggies softball blanks Lobos
The New Mexico State University softball team shut out New Mexico 6-0 to extend its win streak to six consecutive games at Lobo Field Tuesday.
NMSU (33-12) opened with a pair of runs early in the second inning and then added four more in the top of the sixth to clinch its third straight win over UNM in Albuquerque.
Junior Tiare Jennings ripped a home run for the fifth straight game as the Aggies spread nine hits over seven innings. Meanwhile, Aggie right-hander Celisha Walker earned her fifth win of the season in the circle.
The Aggies got a measure of revenge with Tuesday’s win. The Lobos (17-18) won a 3-2 decision in Las Cruces April 4.
The Aggie offense started the scoring in the top of the first with Ashley Maroda getting a basese-loaded single, which scooted through the Lobos’ left side of the infield to score Kandis Jones and give the Aggies a 1-0 edge. Two batters later, sophomore Teresa Conrad drew a bases-loaded walk to extend the edge to 2-0.
In the sixth, as part of a four-run inning for the Aggies, NMSU’s Tiare Jennings extended her home run streak to five consecutive games and made it 10 home runs over the last 10 contests with a solo blast to right center field bleachers to make the score 3-0.
