Team drops doubleheader

IU couldn’t defeat Tulsa (28-14, 10-4) on Saturday, dropping both games of a doubleheader.

In their first contest, the Hoosiers (7-32, 3-9) ran into shutdown starting pitching from Tulsa junior Jackie Lawrence. She rendered the Hoosiers scoreless on three hits and recorded 10 strikeouts on the day in a 3-0 IU loss to the Hurricanes (28-14, 10-4).

Senior Ashley Hobbs was able to limit Tulsa as well, allowing three runs in her complete game for the Hoosiers. But IU struggled to provide her the run support needed for a win.
The second game involved a lot more offense but had the same result as the first.

Tulsa led by as many as three runs on three different occasions in the game. The Hoosiers got within one run twice but did not have enough left for a rally as they fell, 7-5. IU coach Michelle Gardner said she was happy with the finish.

“I still felt really good about that second game,” Gardner said.

Senior shortstop Emily Bergeson led the Hoosiers’ offensive attack, hitting 3-for-3 with a solo home run in the seventh inning.

Gardner said her team cannot continue to fall behind teams to start the game.
“We want to work to get ahead early, and we’ve been struggling to do that,” she said.
