Top of UTM order
does job vs. SEMO

The UT Martin softball team relied on four of its top five batters for eight of its nine hits in a 7-2 victory over Southeast Missouri State on Thursday at home.
Sophomore Leah Taylor, junior Jenny Bain, freshman Amanda Brandenburg and senior Kate Vanderham had two hits each and accounted for eight of the Skyhawks’ nine hits.
Southeast Missouri scored two runs in the top of the first as UT Martin pitcher Chelsea Jones was forced to work her way out of a jam. The Skyhawks tied the game at 2-2 in the bottom half of the first inning with three hits and two runs.
Jones scattered six hits and two walks, but only struck out two of the 28 batters she faced.
The Skyhawks (21-14 overall and 10-3 in the Ohio Valley Conference play) return to action Saturday and Sunday when they host Morehead State in a three-game OVC series at Bettye Giles Field.
