Western Oregon 5, Saint Martin’s 1 – More from SMUSaints.com
Sam Munger hit a three run home run and pitched a complete game to pick up her 15th win of the season in Saint Martin’s 6-5 win in game one. Lacey McGladrey went 2-for-2 with two RBI and Megan Antonovich went 2-for-3 with an RBI.
In game two, Taylor Bakos gave up five unearned runs in the first three innings and the Saints were baffled by Western Oregon’s Myranda Sawyer and lost to the Wolves 5-1. Lacey McGladrey had two of the Saints’ four hits.
With the split and thanks to Central Washington’s sweep of first place Montana State Billings, the Saints move to four games back of the Yellowjackets. However, Billings’ magic number to clinch the GNAC’s automatic NCAA tournament bid is now just two.
