San Antonio – 21st-ranked Angelo State University smacked two homeruns and Chelsea Nelson won her third game of the tournament as the Rambelles defeated St. Mary’s University, 6-2, on the final day of the St. Mary’s Division II Collegiate Classic, played Saturday at the San Antonio ISD Spring Sports Complex.
The Rattlers struggles in the early innings continued on Saturday. In the first inning Sade Moore (Sr., Angleton) singled and moved to second on a sacrifice. Chelsea Wenske (So., Shiner) then walked and stole second to put two runners in scoring position with two outs. But Arlynda Flores (Jr., Uvalde) grounded out to end the threat.
Two innings later the Rambelles struck when Macy Baker smacked a two-run homerun to give ASU a 2-0 lead. In the fifth inning Laura Lopez made it a four-run game with a two-run homerun. The Rattlers finally got on the board in the bottom of the sixth inning. Moore picked up her third hit of the day with a single and Lia Provence (So., Bastrop) followed with a double. Kelly Baker (So., Fort Worth) walked to load the bases with no outs. Wenske then walked to bring home Moore and cut the deficit to 4-1. However, Nelson got a double play and a strikeout to end the threat. ASU added two runs in the top of the seventh to ice the win.
Taryn Munoz (Jr., Bulverde) dropped to 0-2 on the season with the loss. Henry is now 5-0 with the win for ASU. Moore had three of the Rattlers six hits in the game.
With the loss the Rattlers fell to 2-3 this season. They will return to action this Tuesday when they travel to Kingsville to take on Texas A&M University-Kingsville in a doubleheader starting at 5 p.m.
