Softball team seeks redemption in home opener

Matt Lofgren

The Kent State softball team has its home opener Wednesday against the University of Pittsburgh (23-7) in a doubleheader match-up.

The Flashes (9-16) will be looking to continue their winning ways after sweeping Bethune-Cookman last Thursday.

In a match-up earlier this season at the Kick-Off Classic at Florida Atlantic, the Flashes fell to the Panthers 8-0. Weak bats affected the team’s performance as the Flashes were held to just four hits.

The game will be the team’s last tune up before conference play begins April 1 against Bowling Green.

Game one is scheduled to start at 3 p.m., with the second game scheduled to start at 5 p.m. at the Kent State softball field.
