The University of Arkansas at Monticello softball team split a pair of Great American Conference road games with Oklahoma Baptist on Saturday the same way it did on Friday, losing the first game 9-3 and winning the second game 9-7 in 11 innings.
Sophomore Ashton Currey delivered the big hit for the Blossoms in the second game with a two-run homerun in the top of the 11th inning, which held on to be final runs scored in the extra-inning affair.
UAM finished with 18 hits in the win, with six spots in the lineup having at least two hits. Currey finished her productive game 4-for-5 at the plate with three runs batted in.
Junior Korie Parker went 3-for-5 and senior Holly Wilmarth went 3-for-6. Junior McKenzie Rice, senior Kali Piha and sophomore Aubree Head all had two hits in the win.
In the first game, UAM took an early lead on a three-run homerun from freshman Kali Bolter in the top of the first inning, but was limited to just two more scoring opportunities throughout the rest of the game.
The Bison scored the majority of their runs with a six-run second inning, featuring a pair of three-run homeruns.
UAM is back in action next weekend at home in a four-game GAC series against Northwestern Oklahoma State.
