Box Score |
Tech entered Sunday's finale with only six home runs through its first 10 games this season. The Red Raiders unloaded a season-high four dingers against the Wolverines.
Mikey Kenney wrapped a career day at the plate with a 1-for-2 day at the plate with three runs scored and three RBIs off her home run in the sixth inning. Kenney finished a combined 3-for-5 in both games Sunday with five runs scored, six RBIs, and two home runs.
Kenney also moved into a tie for fourth on the Tech career home run chart. The sophomore has 17 over her career and is tied with Jennifer Bowers (2005-08). Kim Martinez owns the school record after hitting 27 from 1997-99.
Stephanie Drewry saw her eight-game hit streak come to an end as the junior finished 0-for-2 at the plate with a couple of sacrifice bunts.
Logan Hall and Raven Richardson were both able to extend their hit streaks as Hall is now up to eight games following a 3-for-4 day at the plate while Richardson is up to seven games after a 1-for-3 performance.
Hall wrapped the weekend with 11 total RBIs as the junior had four RBIs against Utah Valley during both the Friday and Sunday games. She finished 11-for-18 at the plate and also scored 11 total runs.
Sandy James' three RBIs were a season-high and gave the sophomore nine total for the weekend. She had at least two hits in three of Tech's six games of the Texas Tech Invitational as well.
Cydney Allen was a late scratch from the Tech lineup. The junior catcher fouled a ball off her leg in the earlier game against Bryant that forced head coach Shanon Hays to make a change. Allen was held out of the lineup against Utah Valley as a precaution as she was still sore prior to first pitch.
Randi Tongate recorded her first multiple-hit game of the year after a 2-for-3 day at the plate that included two runs scored a RBI off her first career home run that came in the second inning.
