Game Recap - Box Score
Cobbers vs. Royals Series Recap

Cobbers Start Like Van Winkle, Finish Like Montgomery in Split With Bethel. 
ARDEN HILLS-- For the second MIAC series in-a-row, Concordia started like Rip Van Winkle after awakening from a 20-year slumber, and finished the day like Tim Montgomery speeding toward a world record in the 100 meter dash.

The Cobbers allowed four runs in the first two inning of their doubleheader with Bethel on Monday, and then proceeded to allow only one more run in the next 11 innings of play. Offensively, the Cobbers were held to only three runs in the first seven innings and then exploded to score 10 in the next five innings.

All this drama added up to the second consecutive conference series split for the Cobbers. After dropping the opener 4-3, Concordia hammered the Royals in the second game 10-1, in a game that was called after the fifth inning because of the eight-run mercy rule. 

Concordia is now 2-2 in the MIAC and 4-11 overall, while Bethel goes to 1-3 in conference play and 6-8 overall.

In the first game, Gretta Stritesky pitched six innings and allowed six hits and four earned runs. Unfortunately for Stritesky, her offense could manage only three runs on four hits, and she was saddled with her fourth loss of the season. Lindy Sparby drove in two of the three runs for the Cobbers when she doubled in the fifth inning. 

In the second game, Sparby climbed on the mound and shut down the Royal hitters by only allowing one run in five innings. She was given a huge cushion to work with, as the Concordia offense awoke from its slumber and hung back-to-back, four-run innings on the Bethel pitching staff in the second and third innings. 

The top four hitters in the Cobber lineup in game two combined for nine hits and drove in eight of the 10 Concordia runs. Jolene Rebertus had her first three-hit game of the season. She went 3-for-4, drove in two runs and had a pair of doubles. Leadoff hitter Kelli Niess was 2-for-4 but collected a career-high four RBI's. Mandy Pearson and Lisa Kott were the other two Concordia players that did the damage at the top of the lineup for the Cobbers. Pearson went 2-for-2, while Kott was 2-for-3 and scored a run. 

The 10 runs scored by Concordia is the most this season, and the highest offensive output since the Cobbers beat Macalester 10-3 on April 17 of last year. 

Concordia will look to break their slow-fast rut when they host Hamline on Wednesday, April 6 at 1:00pm at the Jake Christiansen Athletic Complex.
