Hattiesburg, Miss. - #10 William Carey University rallied from a six run deficit in game one then got a complete performance in game two as they swept the University of Mobile in SSAC action on Tuesday afternoon at Joseph & Nancy Fail Field.

 

In game one, Mary Blair Odom (FR/Madison, Miss.)'s walk-off RBI single capped an amazing comeback as WCU defeated Mobile, 7-6.

Things looked bleak for WCU (25-2, 6-0 SSAC) as Mobile chased WCU starter Hannah Moak (JR/Ruth, Miss.) after just four inning as the Rams opened a 6-0 lead.

Carey was down to their final six outs when the bats finally came to life. WCU got a RBI single by Catelyn Williams (SR/Ocean Springs, Miss.), a RBI from Macy Monk (SO/Denham Springs, La.), and a two run single by Mary Blair Odom to score four runs in the sixth to cut the lead to 6-4.

In seventh, WCU would not be denied. With the bases loaded, Williams tied the game with a two run double to left field and Odom followed two batters later with the walk off RBI single to centerfield to win the game.

In game two, Rachel Hickman (SR/Poplarville, Miss.) hurled a five hit shutout as Carey completed the sweep with a 3-0 win.

Carey supplied Hickman with all the runs she needed in the fifth inning as they got a two run double from Harli Crow (SO/Denham Springs, La.) and a RBI single by Kaitlyn Thompson (SO/Denham Springs, La.).

With the win Hickman improved to 12-0 on the season.

WCU is back in action on Friday as they host Martin Methodist College in SSAC action. First pitch of the doubleheader is set for 1pm.
