(Tucson, Ariz.) – The Dickinson softball team ran into some hot bats on Monday night, falling to Wisconsin Lutheran, 15-4, in Arizona.
The Warriors opened with six runs in the first inning, loading the bases with no outs. Alicia Barbian drove in two runs with a double, down the left field line.
The Red Devils answered, cutting the lead in half, on one swing of the bat by Grace Edelson (Basking Ridge, N.J./Villa Walsh). Sophomore Stacie Maring (Woodbine, Md./South Carroll) and Casey Ditzler (Cleona, Pa./Annville-Cleona) reached on back-to-back singles, setting the table for Edelson.
The Warriors capitalized on a pair of Red Devil miscues to add a run in the bottom of the inning to lead, 7-3. Dickinson used the long ball again in the fourth as sophomore Micki Crouch (Alexandria, Va./Bishop Ireton) went over the centerfield wall.
The Red Devils recorded two quick outs to start the fourth, but the Warriors erupted for eight runs behind a nine-hit inning.
The Devils could not cut into the lead, as they fell, 15-4. Edelson went 2-for-3 with a walk and a three-run homer. Maring went 2-for-3 with a double.
The Red Devils slip to 2-2 on the season. They face Park University and Alfred University on Tuesday afternoon.
