Four homers power SAU as Goad sets single-season record

MONTICELLO, Ark. -- Southern Arkansas clubbed out four home runs across both games of Tuesday’s conference doubleheader against Arkansas-Monticello at Blossoms Field. Three of those bombs came in the second game as SAU powered its way to a 9-8 come-from-behind victory to claim a split in the twin-bill.

The first of the Lady Muleriders’ (18-14, 13-9 GAC) four total homeruns on Tuesday came in the very first at-bat of the day as Brooke Goad homered to left-centerfield. The leadoff homerun for Goad in the opener made her the single-season record holder in homeruns at SAU. It also marked the fifth time this season that she has led a game off with a round-tripper.

The Cotton Blossoms (20-15, 11-11 GAC) would get that run back, however, in the bottom of the first on an infield single. UAM then scored three runs in the bottom of the second inning to take a 4-1 lead.

SAU starting pitcher Shelby Miller would help her own cause in the top of the third as she doubled home a run to make it a 4-2 game. The Cotton Blossoms would extend their lead in the bottom of the next inning on a two-run homerun by Brittany Eitel. Four more runs came across in the bottom of the fifth as the Cotton Blossoms forced the eight-run rule to win the opening game.
