April 18, 2012
NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Following an impressive doubleheader sweep of McNeese State on Monday, the Stephen F. Austin Ladyjacks will host the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks Thursday at 4:30 p.m. in what will be the final non-conference home game of the season.
SFA (13-27, 4-10) scored 13 combined runs in two games against the second-place Cowgirls on Monday, including a season-high nine runs and 14 hits in the game one 9-8 walkoff victory. Senior outfielder Amber Price had a big day at the plate, going a combined 3-for-8 with 4 RBI's, and the game-winning single in the bottom of the seventh in game one.
Sophomore Carlie Thomas was also solid in the circle, earning two wins while allowing just two earned runs in 9.2 innings of combined work. Thomas struck out a combined five hitters while issuing just three walks.
The Warhawks (18-19, 5-10) have lost six of their past eight games entering Thursday play. They have been outscored 282-226 so far this season.
The Ladyjacks will host Central Arkansas this weekend with a Friday/Saturday series.
