LWC Softball hoping to break a record this weekend
By Kyrin Mayfield
With a perfect 28-0 record in 2021, combined with three wins in a row last season before the remainder of the schedule was canceled due to COVID-19, the No. 2 Lindsey Wilson softball team is on a 31-game win streak and has a chance to make history this weekend during the four-game series against Martin Methodist (TN) in Pulaski, TN.
Friday's doubleheader begins at 2pmCT while first pitch for Saturday's pair of games is scheduled for NoonCT. Live video and live stats will be available. Visiting fans are allowed to attend. Please read the Martin Methodist Fan Attendance Policy for more information.
The Blue Raiders are just two wins away from tying the longest winning streak in program history, which sits at 33 consecutive victories from March 22 to May 22 during the 2015 season.
Lindsey Wilson (28-0, 20-0 Mid-South Conference) comes into the series after twice needing extra innings to down Cumberland (TN) in two games on Monday. The Blue Raiders possess one of the most potent offenses in the country with the 10th-highest slugging percentage (.552), 10th-most runs per game (7.6), ninth-highest batting average (.362), and seventh-most home runs per game (1.1) in the NAIA.
Makea-Al Kaluau was clutch in the second game against Cumberland. She knocked in three of the team's four runs including a two-out game-tying RBI hit in the seventh and ninth innings. Kaluau later scored the game-winning run to keep Lindsey Wilson perfect on the year. The junior is tied for the most home runs in the nation with 12, and hits 0.4 per game, the fifth-most in the NAIA. She also holds the team lead in batting average (.479), doubles (9), RBIs (42), and slugging percentage (.957).
Mikayla Marquez sits at the top of multiple statistical categories on the team with 18 stolen bases and 30 runs. On average, she scores 1.1 runs every contest, a mark that is third-best in the MSC.
Annabelle Ramirez (18-0) is tied for the most wins in the NAIA and continues to be one of the top pitchers in the country with an ERA of 0.92, .121 opponent batting average, and an NAIA-best 13.1 strikeouts per seven innings pitched.
Martin Methodist (7-15, 5-13 MSC) is in the middle of the most difficult part of its schedule. Of the RedHawks' final 16 games, 10 are against ranked opponents. Martin Methodist dropped two games against No. 12 Campbellsville (Ky.), now face No. 2 Lindsey Wilson, and later play No. 22 Freed-Hardeman (Tenn.) for the final four games of the season.
Chloe Clavon is one RedHawk to watch at the plate. She heads the squad in batting average (.444) and doubles (5). The sophomore is 7-for-12 with three runs and five RBIs in her previous four games.
Kamryn Murdock (2-5) is the RedHawks' top starter with a 4.24 ERA, .260 opponent batting average, and 20 strikeouts across 38 innings of work in seven starts.
Martin Methodist leads the all-time series with a record of 14-3 against Lindsey Wilson, but the Blue Raiders have won three of the previous four.
