LAS CRUCES, N.M. – The Rams continued to dull the Aggies’ potent offense Sunday after losing to them, 5-2, on Saturday, but ultimately could not overcome the deficit and lost the rematch against New Mexico State, 4-1, at the New Mexico State Softball Complex.
The loss brings CSU’s overall record to 3-7 (0-0 MW) and gives them a 1-4 record at the Troy Cox Classic, while NMSU picks up its ninth victory of the season (9-2, 0-0 WAC).
Despite scoring three fewer runs than the Aggies, the Rams outhit them, 6-4. CSU’s only run came from freshman Danielle Wikre, who became the fourth Ram this season to hit a home run with a solo shot to left-center. The homer answered NMSU’s one run from the first inning and tied up the game.
Senior Kelli Eubanks pitched a complete game for the Rams, her second of the year. Eubanks gave up three earned runs in the form of an RBI single and a two-run home run. The loss brings her record to 1-3 on the season and a 5.85 ERA, good for second on the pitching staff.
This week, the Rams will begin their third tournament of the season when they travel to Palm Springs, Calif. for the Cathedral City Classic. They will take on Long Beach State on Thursday, starting at 7 p.m. MT.
