JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Feb 28, 2023) – The ETSU softball team hosted their first home game of the season on Tuesday afternoon, ultimately suffering a 5-4 loss to Appalachian State in the final moments at Betty Basler Field.
Appalachian State (9-3)
The visiting Mountaineers opened the game scoring a run after Kaley Coltrain singled her way onto first before scoring the game’s opening run on a pair of passed balls. After a scoreless second frame, Appalachian State scored again when Martin recorded an RBI double to take the 2-0 lead.
Answering back in the bottom half, Sanchez singled down the left-field line and stole her third base of the year. Michel recorded a single, in which Sanchez crossed the plate on a throwing error by the first basemen. Mimicking her teammate, Michel stole her seventh of the year and crossed the plate with the help of a passed ball and wild pitch.
In the top of the fifth, Appalachian State hit back-to-back singles then later loaded the bases before McCullen recorded a two-RBI double to put the Mountaineers up by two and scored on the next at bat with a sac fly by Thorpe. In the bottom of the frame, ETSU scored a run after Young recorded her third RBI of the year – all happening in the last three games.
After Dunn and Sanchez recorded singles to get on base, Michel grounded out, but not before adding a run as Dunn crossed home plate. Loading the bases after her second hit of the day and Sara Muir was hit by a pitch, the Bucs grounded out to close the game.
