Softball drops neutral site game with Mississippi State
Brown picks up lone RBI of game for MTApril 22, 2013 · @MTAthletics
IRONDALE, Ala. - The Middle Tennessee softball team fell, 8-1, to Mississippi State in a neutral site game at the Shea Brothers Softball Complex on Monday evening.
MT (5-43) had six hits in the game, but couldn't overcome a potent MSU (30-16) offense that had 11 hits, including three home runs.
After allowing three runs in the bottom of the first and one in the third, MT answered back in the fourth.
Toney broke up the no-hitter with a single to lead off the inning, moving to second when Laura Dukes was hit by a pitch. Toney reached third as Dever reached on a fielder's choice, and Brown's 2-out single provided MT's lone run for the game.
MSU would break the game open in the fifth, scoring four unanswered to put the game out of reach.
