CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – Roane State softball travelled to Chattanooga St. on Wednesday for a twin bill against the Lady Tigers. The opening games of the Raiders’ conference schedule did not go as hoped for as RSCC lost 4-1 in the opening game and 11-0 (5 innings) in the nightcap.
In the first game, Chattanooga St. drew first blood when they plated three runs in the bottom of the third inning. The Raiders answered with a run in the top of the fourth, but that was all they were able to put on the scoreboard for the day.
The Lady Tigers added an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth to take home a 4-1 win.
In the second game, Chattanooga St. jumped out early with a six-run bottom of the first. They added two more runs in the bottom of the second and another three in the fourth. Leading 11-0 after five innings, the mercy rule kicked in giving the Lady Tigers their second win of the day.
Weather permitting, the Raiders return to action on Saturday at home against Walters St.
