LWC Softball resumes MSC play against Georgetown

By Kyrin Mayfield

After a doubleheader sweep over No. 6 Georgia Gwinnett on Wednesday, the No. 3 Lindsey Wilson softball team heads back to the diamond today for two games against Georgetown (KY) beginning at 2pmCT. Both squads will also play two contests on Sunday with a first pitch of 2pmCT as well.

Live stats and live video will be available. Please read the Lindsey Wilson Attendance Protocols for attendance information.



The Blue Raiders (14-0, 8-0 Mid-South Conference) swept their second top-10 opponent of the season last night thanks to an eighth-inning walk-off home run by Makea-Al Kaluau in game two of the doubleheader against the Grizzlies.

Kaluau sent three balls over the fence in that series and comes into this matchup with a team-high eight home runs, .521 batting average, and 29 RBIs.

Lyric Houston follows close behind with an average of .400, seven extra-base hits, 14 runs and 18 RBIs.

Annabelle Ramirez saw her shutout streak end at 26 innings against Georgia Gwinnett, but the senior received both wins in the doubleheader. She brings an ERA of 0.66 into the series along with an opposing batting average of .139 and 83 strikeouts in 42.2 innings pitched.

Georgetown (5-3, 0-2 MSC) is riding a three-game win streak and has won five of the last six games. The Tigers have outscored opponents 37-7 over the previous three contests.

Carly Oliver provides the power in the Georgetown lineup with a team-high three home runs. The sophomore has sent one out of the park in each of her last three games. Oliver also heads the Tigers in batting average (.448), runs (11), extra-base hits (7), RBIs (12), and stolen bases (4).

Sarah Claxon has been rolling in her last three starts in the circle. The right-handed hurler has led Georgetown to victory in each of her previous three outings and recorded a season-high four strikeouts in her last game against Montreat (N.C.) on March 7. She possesses a 3.18 ERA with seven strikeouts in 22 innings pitched over four appearances.
