Tiger softball falls in MIAA tourney

By The Hays Daily News

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – The Fort Hays State University softball team struggled in two main areas this spring: hitting with runners in scoring position and giving up the big inning.

On Friday, the Tigers, No. 9 in the Central Region and No. 4 seed in the MIAA conference tournament, had problems in both en route to a 5-4 loss to Lindenwood (Mo.) University. The seventh-seeded Lions moved on to play top-seeded Emporia State University. FHSU finished the tournament 1-2 and 29-20 overall. 

The Central Region is formed of three conferences: the MIAA, Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference and Great American Conference. The winners of each three conference tournaments receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Division II tournament next week. Arkansas Tech, ranked No. 8 in the region, is already out of the GAC tournament. The NCAA Division II selection show will be Monday morning.

However, other teams, including Lindenwood and MIAA No. 8 seed Northeastern State University, are among those who could steal a bid.

Fort Hays had bases loaded in the first inning with none out and scored just one run. The Tigers allowed all five runs in the fifth against losing pitcher Paxton Duran (17-9). The Lions opened the inning with three straight singles. After a strikeout, a bases loaded walk and two-run single followed. Kelsey Kimminau entered for Duran. A stolen base and error led to the final run.

Lindenwood made four errors, including one in the seventh that helped the Tigers load the bases with none out. However, a hard line drive to second base, a sacrifice fly and a fly out to center field netted just one run. Fort Hays had one run in the first and two in the second. Morgan Colvis (9-11) worked five relief innings and allowed just one unearned run in the victory.
