- Savannah Carpenter
scored the winning run on an error in the bottom of the 10th inning to give Mark Redburn
his 100th career victory as an NCAA Division I head coach Wednesday when Southeast Missouri (10-18) edged Southern Illinois (13-18-1), 4-3.
Southeast picked up its fourth-straight win and was victorious in extra innings for the first time this year.
The Redhawks and Salukis were tied after nine innings when the international tiebreaker rule went into effect.
Kalyn Harker was placed on second base to start the 10th and immediately advanced to third on a SAC-bunt by Merri Ann Patterson. A great defensive play by India Davis
then kept SIU off the board. Davis made a sliding catch on a fly ball by Shaye Harre in foul territory. After making the catch, Davis quickly threw out Harker on a close play at the plate.
Carpenter took second base during the Redhawks final at-bat in the 10th. Taylor McDannold
laid down a bunt to get Carpenter to third and Savannah Fisher mis-handled the throw at first base. Carpenter was able to score on the error, securing Southeast's walkoff win.
Southeast took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the fifth when Shelby Eccles
knocked in pinch-runner Nicole Deering
and later scored on a fielder's choice.
SIU capitalized on three errors to plate two unearned runs and tie the game at 2-2 in the sixth.
The Salukis took their first lead on a one-out solo home run by Sydney Jones in the eighth.
Southeast, however, countered when Riley Hayes
drove in McDannold on a one-out double to right center during its at-bat in the eighth.Madeline Krumrey
claimed her fourth-straight complete game victory and improved to 7-6 this season. Krumrey allowed eight hits and three runs (two unearned) in her longest outing this year. She also recorded a season-high nine strikeouts and issued just one walk. Krumrey tossed seven scoreless innings, as well.
Katie Bertelsen (11-9) was credited with the loss in relief. Bertelsen allowed a run and one hit, while striking out two and walking two in two innings.
Offensively, the Redhawks finished with seven hits. Kayla Fortner
went 2-for-2 with three walks and Eccles went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a walk to lead the way.
Kelsey Gonzalez led SIU with three hits.
Southeast returns to Ohio Valley Conference action with a three-game series at Murray State this weekend. The Redhawks and Racers open their series with a 1 p.m., CT, doubleheader Saturday.
