TU softball routed in conference tournament opener


St. Thomas parlayed five runs in the sixth inning, including two scored on a wild throw, to a 11-2 win over Thomas in the first round of the Sun Conference Softball Tournament on Thursday.

The Lady Hawks fell behind 2-0 through the first two innings but tied the game in the third when Aimee Johnson pelted a two-RBI double to left-center field that brought home Kallie Shirling and Chandler Seay.

The Lady Bobcats then added a score in the fourth and fifth innings before its juggernaut sixth inning.

St. Thomas led off with three straight hits, including an RBI double by Danielle Borrelli. Sasha Horton reached second base on the combination of a fielder’s choice and wild throw by TU pitcher Ashley Sikes, which left runners on second and third base. 

Sikes added another wild throw during the ensuing at-bat, which brought those runners home and gave the Lady Bobcats an 8-2 lead.

St. Thomas capped its win with a pair of runs scored on a fielder’s choice in the seventh while holding Thomas scoreless for the final four innings.

The Lady Hawks are now on the brink of elimination in the best-of-three series that continues on Friday at 9 a.m.

Third-seeded Thomas (24-22, 10-6) will need to win back-to-back games to continue its season.
