Beaver softball team get 300th victory
The Bemidji State softball team won its 300th game in program history Wednesday, downing Minnesota State Moorhead 5-3 before dropping the second game of the doubleheader 2-1 in extra innings.
The games were originally scheduled to be played in Moorhead, but were moved to Bemidji because of unplayable field conditions.
Kelsey Saralampi picked up her first win of the season in the opener, giving up five hits and two earned runs in six innings. Courtney Anderson got the save after striking out two in the seventh.
Kayla Babinski led the offense with three hits and three runs batted in.
Megan Beard gave the Beavers a 1-0 lead in the second game with an RBI single, but Moorhead capitalized on two BSU fielding errors in the seventh inning to tie it, then won with a walk-off home run by Molly Keeler in the eighth.
The Beavers are now 2-16 overall and 1-9 in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference.
Bemidji State will travel to Minnesota-Duluth this weekend for two doubleheaders against the Bulldogs.
