Mavericks keep rolling

Big first inning propels CMU into semifinal

The proverbial snowball effect followed Colorado Mesa University’s softball team throughout its RMAC tournament second-round game against Colorado School of Mines on Friday.
CMU’s lineup piled on eight first-inning runs against the Orediggers before the fourth inning, when Mines found a way to get its offense rolling. By the end of the game, the top-seeded Mavericks had recovered from that shaky fourth inning to bury Colorado Mines 15-5 in five innings at Bergman Field and move two victories away from the tournament title.
“Games like today worry me,” CMU coach Ben Garcia said. “You set a pace like that and then you wonder what’s going to happen the rest of the way, hoping you don’t end up relaxing. We got a little lazy and complacent in that fourth inning.”
