Sycamore Softball Downs Indiana 7-5 For Second Consecutive Big 10 Win

April 2, 2014


BLOOMINGTON, Ind.--The Indiana State Softball team (18-14) remained a perfect 13-0 when scoring in the first inning as they defeated the Hoosiers of Indiana (9-24-1) Tuesday by a final score of 7-5 for their second consecutive Big 10 victory.


Junior Megan Stone went 3-4 while senior Shelby Wilson was 2-3 with two RBI's and freshman Erika Crissman was 2-4 with a double and triple as the Sycamores led wire-to-wire to defeat the Sycamores.


Senior Morgan Allee led off the game with a hit by pitch and advanced to second on a sacrifice by freshman Rylee Holland. After a walk by freshman Brooke Riemenschneider, Stone hit an RBI double to score Allee. Two batters later, sophomore Alexa Cavin hit an RBI single to score Riemenschneider and give the Sycamores a 2-0 lead.


The Hoosiers got one back in the bottom half of the first but the Sycamores answered right back in the top of the second after Yvette Alvarez led off the inning with a walk and scored off an infield single by Holland.


Once again the Hoosiers answered back with a one run off three hits in the bottom of the second to cut the ISU lead to 3-2 after two complete innings.


The Sycamores did not let up, however, as they scored two in the fourth and two in the sixth to take a 7-3 lead over the Hoosiers. Indiana threatened in the bottom of the seventh, scoring two runs but the Sycamores prevailed with a 7-5 win.


The Sycamores had chances to blow the game wide open, stranding the bases loaded twice, but still recorded six RBI's on the day.


The Sycamores will return to action on Thursday when they host North Dakota in a doubleheader beginning at 2 p.m. at Price Field.
