Houston, Texas -- Sophomore All-American Mariangee Bogado pitched a one-hitter and picked up her third win of the season as the Hoosiers defeated Centenary College, 1-0, this afternoon on day two of the Crowne Plaza Classic in Houston, Texas.
"Mariangee did a great job on the mound and threw a one-hitter," said Indiana head coach Sara Hayes Nottger. "Our defense played excellent behind her. We played a very well-coached game and a very aggressive team in Centenary. Overall, we were very pleased with our play."
Bogado pitched her second complete game of the weekend with seven strikeouts and just two walks. Bogado gave up just one hit, a single in the bottom of the sixth inning. Centenary's Jordan Lansdale smacked a line dry to shallow leftfield, just out of the reach of Megan Roark who was playing left.
"Our team is doing great. We are doing the little things and we are working hard. Most importantly we are playing well together, as a team," said Bogado. "I made some mistakes today. I shouldn't have walked as many batters as I did but overall I think I pitched O.K."
Indiana got on board in the top of the fourth when sophomore Lauren Hines slammed a double to leftfield. Freshman Kim Richards hit a single down the right field line to score Hines from second. The run would be all the Hoosiers would need to secure the win.
Indiana will play another game this evening, in a rare night game, against the University of Houston. The Hosiers conclude the tournament tomorrown morning when they face their first nationally ranked opponent of the season, No. 12 Nebraska. Game time is set for 11:00 a.m.
