Lee Softball Defeats AUM Twice
MONTGOMERY—Auburn University at Montgomery and Lee University locked up in two softball games that took extra innings to decide both games, and it was the visiting Lady Flames that came away with two 2-1 extra inning wins.
In the first game Brandi Richards (12-5) went the distance allowing the two runs on five hits and striking out 13.
The Lady Senators trailed the entire game until Ashton Nelson’s base hit in the bottom of the seventh inning evened the score at 1 sending it into extra innings.
From there Lee was able to score a run in the eighth on two hits and a fielder’s choice for the second and winning run of the game.
The second game was much the same as Danielle Ryan (6-11) went the distance for AUM allowing two runs on five hits.
AUM took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning on a solo homerun from Joanna Reynolds. It was her second homerun of the season.
That lead would not hold up as Lee was able to score a late run to send the game into the extra period, which like the first game, saw Lee push across a run on two hits and hold on for the win.
AUM falls to 29-18-1 overall and 17-10-1 in the conference. Lee moves to 26-10 overall and 18-4 in conference action. AUM will host its final home games of the season tomorrow when Shorter comes to town. The games will be held at Lagoon Park and will begin at 1 p.m.
