The Lady Titans (25-14 overall ; 2-0 conference) continued with the start of their conference tirade against the Lady Manatees of State College of Florida on Tuesday 3/20. The double header was an exciting game that went into 9 innings in Sarasota. Allie Johnson pitched 8 1/3 of those innings giving up 8 hits, 1 walk and striking out 2. The only two runs that scored were both from an error in the outfield. Breanna Sniffen came in at the bottom of the 9th with two runners on to get out of a potential jam. Johnson received the win and Sniffen the save. The offense was led by Madison Morris who moved from the three spot to the leadoff due to an injury to Esther Leong. She was 3-5 with an RBI that tied the game in the top of the 9th. Danielle Sanders was 2-3 with a double, run scored and a sacrifice. First baseman Tyler Davidson was 3-4 with a double and drove in the winning run in the top of the 9th.
The second game of the double header did not turn out the way the Lady Titans wished. The pitching was split by Erica Gulik and Breanna Sniffen. Erica gave up 8 hits, 4 runs, 3 errors, and struck out 2 in 4 innings of work. Breanna came in at the 5th to close out the game giving up 1 hit, 1 walk and 1 unearned run that eventually won the game at the bottom of the 7th. The offense was put to the test facing the Manatee ace – P. Matthews (16-2). Once again, Madison Morris was 2-3 with a sac. Right fielder Shanelly Brown was 2-4 with an RBI and run scored. Shortstop Giselle Delgado was 1 for 3 with a triple and 3 RBIs that brought the Titans within one run in the 5th. Delgado then suffered a concussion and was forced to come out of the game. Other note worthy offensive achievements were Designated Player Taryn Saito who was 3 for 3 with a walk, third baseman Talia Barraco who was 2 for 3 with a run scored, and first baseman Tyler Davidson who had a solid night going 2 for 2 with a double, 2 runs scored, and a sacrifice.
