Softball HAAC Opener

LIBERTY, Mo. – The Baker University softball team got its HAAC season started off on the right foot Thursday afternoon, sweeping William Jewell College, 5-1 and 4-2.

Austin Boehm and Maggie Holmberg led the Wildcats offensively in game one each recording two RBI’s and a home run. Holmberg also steadied the Wildcats on the mound, pitching seven innings while giving up just one earned run on ten hits.

“Jewell left 11 runners stranded, but it goes to show you how we were able to work our way out of a few jams,” said head coach Matt Windle.

Game two saw the Wildcats make a comeback from two runs down after trailing 2-0 after the first inning. Heather Gruber led the way offensively going 1-for-4 with two RBI’s. Erin Greenwood picked up the victory on the mound after pitching a complete game while giving up just two earned runs on eight hits.

“We started off our conference season just the way we wanted to,” Windle added. “We’ve gotta keep the momentum rolling on Sunday against Missouri Valley.”

The Wildcats currently sit in third-place overall in the Heart of America Athletic Conference Standings with an 11-9 overall record and 2-0 HAAC record. Baker will be back in action Sunday afternoon against Missouri Valley College at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
