PALM SPRINGS, California -

The Oklahoma State softball team wrapped up play at the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic on Sunday, defeating Cal State Northridge, 4-0, before dropping a 6-0 decision to San Diego State in the final game of competition. OSU went 3-2 on the weekend.

Against CSUN, the Cowgirls scored early, taking a 1-0 lead when Danielle Riddle scored on a throwing error in the bottom of the second inning.

The Matador pitcher held the Cowgirl bats relatively quiet until the bottom of the sixth. In that frame, Tarah Ettinger singled, scoring Ari Morrison from second base. Tiffany Mikkelson crossed home plate on a wild pitch, and later in the inning, Shianne Hughes scored on a base hit by Shannon Kaufman to put the Cowgirls up, 4-0.

Simone Freeman started in the circle for the Cowgirls and picked up her eighth victory of the season. The OSU senior threw a complete-game shutout, scattering three hits while striking out 12.

At the plate, the Cowgirls combined for eight hits. Hughes was 2-for-2 with a run scored. Kaufman and Mikkelson each had a hit and a run batted in. Morrison, Riddle, Shelby Davis, and Gessenia DeLaCruz all had hits for OSU.

In the nightcap, San Diego State (10-5) jumped on the board in the bottom of the first inning, when Patricia Jackson hit a two-run home run to left field to put the Aztecs up, 2-0.

SDSU picked up three more runs in the bottom of the fifth. A pair of Aztecs scored on wild pitches, and Jackson scored on an error by the Cowgirl catcher, extending the lead to 5-0. The Aztecs added another run in the bottom of the sixth, when Monica Downey scored on a base hit, and San Diego State went on to win, 6-0.

Oklahoma State (10-5) returns to Stillwater next weekend for the home opener. OSU will host Arkansas-Pine Bluff in a doubleheader on Friday. First pitch of the twinbill is slated for 1 p.m.
