Michigan State 13 (7-2), RMU 2 (1-8): Robert Morris completed their play in the Madeira Beach Spring Invitational in Madeira Beach, Florida Sunday. However, it was not the outcome RMU was looking for dropping their third straight game. The Colonials scored the game’s first runs in the top of the first inning after junior Olivia Lorusso belted a pitch over the outfield fence for a 2-run home run. The Spartans then answered back with a 5 run bottom of the first inning to take the lead. Michigan State then added 1 run in the third inning and 7 runs in the fourth inning. Freshman starting pitcher Madison Riggle went 3.0 innings giving up 10 runs, 3 of which were earned on 6 hits. Sophomore Lacee Collins replaced Riggle in the pitching circle and went 1.0 inning and was charged 3 earned runs.
