Marshall Blanks UTEP, 8-0, to Complete Series Sweep
April 1, 2012
El Paso, Texas - The Miner bats had no answer for Marshall’s Andi Williamson on Sunday afternoon. Williamson hurled a complete game shutout surrendering only three hits to UTEP (12-25, 2-11 C-USA) in the 8-0 five inning Marshall victory. Kayla Oranger accounted for two of those hits going 2-3 on the day.
A single in the first inning put Marshall on the board against UTEP starter Colleen Hohman.
Williamson held UTEP hitless in the first two innings until Kayla Oranger smacked a single through the right side to break up the no-no.
Hohman held the Thundering Herd scoreless for the next three innings until they took her for 5 runs in the fifth inning. An error by Hohman lead to two runs and a three-run home run off the bat of Gamby brought in the five runs off Hohman. Laura Ramos came in relief after Hively doubled off Hohman. Valle promptly hit a two-run home run on the first offering from Ramos to extend the Marshall lead to 8-0.
The Miners loaded the bases in the bottom of the fifth inning but were unable to bring any runs across.
UTEP will take on UCF in a three game series at home starting with a doubleheader on Friday at 2:00 p.m. at the Helen of Troy Softball Complex.
