PUEBLO, Colo. (March 25, 2017) – The Colorado State University-Pueblo softball team dropped a pair of crucial Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference games Saturday versus Regis at the Rawlings Softball Complex. The Pack fell 4-0 in game one and went down 13-4 in six innings in the nightcap.
In game one CSU-Pueblo (11-15, 8-10 RMAC) found themselves down early on two runs scored by Regis in the second inning.
The Pack had little answers to Regis starting pitcher Logan Losh managing just three hits in the contest.
A two-out double by K'Lee Kent (Jr., P, Hobbs, NM) in the bottom half of the second produced the only ball to reach the outfield in the air for the Pack.
Singles in each of the sixth and seventh was all she wrote for CSU-Pueblo in a 4-0 defeat.
CSU-Pueblo starting pitcher Kent was tabbed with the loss falling to 1-4 on the year.
In game two Regis used two five-run scoring innings to get past the Pack.
The Rangers leaped to a 5-0 lead on five hits in the top of the second inning.
CSU-Pueblo responded with back-to-back jacks hit by Sabrina Felix (Fr., OF, Corona, Calif.), a 2-run shot and Michaela Burpee (So., C, Union City, Calif.) a solo bomb cutting the lead to 5-3 after two complete.
Holding the two run lead Regis plated five more runs in the fourth inning, capitalizing on two Pack errors in the frame.
In her next at bat Felix belted her second homer of the game over the right field fence to keep the Pack afloat.
RU tacked on a single run in the fifth and two more in the sixth inning and close out the run-ruled game 13-4.
