KSU splits doubleheader

The Brownfield sisters could not be kept off the bases as Kent State earned a home split Wednesday against St. Francis in the Golden Flashes' final nonleague doubleheader of the year.

KSU (24-21) dropped the opener 5-4 before winning the nightcap 6-2.

Bailey Brownfield and Brenna Brownfield combined for seven hits, four runs and six RBI to lead the Flashes.

Brenna doubled twice and drilled a two-run home run. Bailey continued her charge up the record books after another double gave her 18 for the year, good for second most in a single season and three away from tying a school record for most in a career. She also has 199 total hits in her career, fourth in program history.
