The Ichabods started off strong March 28 in their doubleheader against Pittsburg State with a solo home run in the first inning from freshman infielder Cassidy Merriman.

But that was the only point the Gorillas would gave up in game one.

Pittsburg State went on to score a run in the second, third and fourth innings, putting them on top, 3-1. They did not score after that, but it was enough of a boost to give the Gorillas the win in game one.

The first two innings of the second game went scoreless for both teams. The drought was broken in the third inning when Pittsburg State racked up three points.

Washburn responded in the bottom of the inning though, scoring three runes of their own.

The game saw no more runs until the eighth inning, when the Gorillas added two. Washburn responded, but could only muster up one point and ultimately fell, 5-4. The Bods face Arkansas Tech at home Wednesday, April 1 at 2 and 4 p.m.
