The No. Meanwhile, Emily Williams flirted with a no-hitter, striking out nine batters along the way. I thought the team did a great job of staying up and telling her that we would score some runs for her. It is nice to see different bats in our lineup coming through and AK [Segars] put together a couple great at bats against a quality pitcher.
Had she completed the effort, it would have marked just the second time State had thrown no-hitters in consecutive games, dating back to the first two in school history when Alicia Judd and Jenny Hehnke threw back-to-back no-hitters against Alabama State on March The Bulldogs later got out of the inning when Mia Davidson registered her fifth caught stealing of the year.
Williams quickly struck out a final batter to bring the Bulldogs to the plate where it took just two batters to end the ballgame.

Madisyn Kennedywho had made an athletic play in the top half to catch Davidson's throw and apply the tag at third while still running to cover the bag, led off the inning and reached on an error. Segars did the rest, sending the pitch over the center field wall. In their second game of the day, the Bulldogs wasted no time. The first four batters all reached base and scored before the first out was recorded.
Segars again provided most of the damage with a bases-loaded triple before coming home on the first out of the inning. State added one more in the frame. MSU brought 14 batters to the plate in that frame, scoring nine runs on seven hits.
Ricketts was able to use three pinch hitters, all of whom reached base. MVSU answered back with a three-run homer in the top of the fourth inning, but the Bulldogs scored three runs of their own in the bottom half of the inning to result in the final score.
