Katelyn Slamer scored Texas A&M-Texarkana’s final run of the day Wednesday at Bramlett Field as the Eagles registered their first two wins of the 2021 softball season against Texas A&M-San Antonio.
Slamer stroked her fourth hit in the sixth inning of the game in the nightcap. She stole second, moved up on a passed ball, and scored on Erika Richardson’s single to left. That hit game the Eagles an 8-0 run-rule victory.
Slamer had to share the spotlight with pitcher Dorrie Cormier. She shut out TAMU-SA on two hits, walking one and striking out 11. Richardson and Gracelyn Spring had two hits each for the winners. Alicia Mora scored a run and drove in another with a triple, and Jewels Caro had three RBI, despite not having a base hit.

The Eagles also got an outstanding pitching performance in the opener from Anna Westberry. She scattered five hits, while walking four and striking out six in the 2-1 win. The Roadrunners’ only run of the day scored in the seventh.
Mora led Texarkana at the plate with a double and single. Molly Harrison had a run-scoring single, and Laura Dyer contributed an RBI-hit.
TAMU-T is 2-3 on the season, and 2-0 in the Red River Athletic Conference. San Antonio is a newcomer in the RRAC. It slips to 2-2 overall and 0-2 in league play.
