Clarksville, Ark.-Amber Rollins tossed a three-hit shutout in Ozarks 4-0 game one victory, but Hendrix College took the nightcap 16-5 Tuesday in the Lady Eagles home opener.
In game one, Ozarks (7-9) and Hendrix (8-4) were scoreless through the first three innings of play, but that changed in the bottom of the fourth when the Lady Eagles recorded four hits. Ali Mathis led off the bottom half of the inning with a single to leftfield. Tori Lemieux followed with an infield single and both Mathis and Lemieux would later steal a base. With one out, Rollins helped her own cause with a sacrifice bunt to score Mathis from third. Shawnee Sorensen then delivered a single up the middle to score Lemieux for a 2-0 lead. Ozarks added to its lead in the sixth on Sorensen’s two-run single down the leftfield line.
