Finishing The Gauntlet
About The Opposition
This weekend’s series with the Broncos was originally scheduled to be a standard Friday-Sunday set, but with the ned to make up conference games, it has been adjusted to a Friday doubleheader and a Saturday finale with San Jose State coming to town for a Sunday-Monday series.
The Rams are led by the play of Hale Hutton (.432, 35 hits, five triples, 25 runs) and Savannah Clark (.302, three home runs, 17 RBI) at the plate, while in the circle, Holly Reinke is 9-5 with a 2.41 ERA and 61 strikeouts.
Colorado State leads the all-time series with the Broncos, 8-5, although the Broncos captured last year’s series with a pair of wins at Dona Larsen Park. Boise State is 1-5 all-time against the Rams in Fort Collins.
Last Time Out
The Bulldogs battered the Bronco pitching, hitting .479 with seven home runs and outscoring the Broncos 49-14 over the three games.
All three games ended early via the mercy rule, with Fresno State finishing the opener, 17-8 in five innings, before closing the doubleheader with a 14-4, six-inning win. The finale ended 18-2 in five innings in the Bulldogs’ favor.
Despite the sweep, Boise State did have some bright spots as freshman Rebekah Cervantes continued her sizzling start to conference play, batting .875 (7-for-8) with three home runs, seven RBI and four runs scored in the series. Fellow rookie Morgan Lamb batted .500 with all four of her hits going for extra bases (two doubles, two home runs). Sophomore Kaelie Doyle also got in on the power show, hitting the first home run of her career in the series opener.
Cervantes Lighting It Up In MW Play
Cervantes hit all three of those homers against Fresno State this week, including a two-homer game on the back end of Tuesday’s doubleheader. Her hitting has also put her conference slugging percentage at an eye-popping 1.412.
This hot start has propelled her into the Boise State season lead in batting (.371), hits (33), runs scored (19), and a tie for the lead in home runs (six).
Steps In As Lamb, Sends It Out Like A Lion
Lamb, who is now third on the team with a .328 batting average, is tied for the team lead in doubles with seven, and is batting .385 (5-for-13) in conference play.
Doyle, who was 0-for-6 at the plate in her collegiate career entering the series, hit the first home run of her Boise State career late in Tuesday’s opener, then followed with a 1-for-2 showing Wednesday as she made the first start of her collegiae career.
