(Gulf Shores, AL) After splitting Friday's opening day of the Gulf Shores Invite, Concordia softball dropped their next three on Saturday and Sunday to end their run in the tournament. The hits were hard to come by as the Cardinals took on strong pitching from Campbellsville, Lindsey Wilson, and Missouri Baptist.
Game 3 Highlights – CUAA 2, #12 Campbellsville 10
The 12th-ranked Tigers jumped on Concordia pitching right away putting up six runs in the top half of the first inning. The Cardinals, meanwhile, didn't get their first hit until the fourth when Amanda Benezra (SR/La Quinta, CA) singled and came around to score on an error. Elizabeth Barkel (JR/Clinton, MI) added one more an inning later with her first home run of the year—a solo shot to center field.
Game 4 Highlights – CUAA 0, Lindsey Wilson 4
The Blue Radiers three first-inning runs were enough to beat CUAA in Saturday's first game. Lindsey Wilson as Carly Murat (SO/Muskegon) and Kassidy Grandorff (FR/Chehalis, WA) both knocked singles in their first plate appearances, but that was all the offense the Cardinals would get as Lindsey Wilson went on to win, 4-0. Samantha Eubanks (SO/Lomita, CA) pitched all seven innings and was charged with the four runs while striking out two.
Game 5 Highlights – CUAA 2, Missouri Baptist 5
Lindsey Pyle (SR/Pelham, AL)'s 10th career home run put Concordia up 2-0 in the fourth inning, but Missouri Baptist scored five unanswered to eliminate the Cardinals from the tournament. Pyle also added a single in a 2-3 day at the pl. Jessica England (JR/Fowlerville, MI) gave up two earned runs and struck out four in six innings of work in the circle.
The Cardinals look to bounce back in Tuesday's double-header at Thomas University in Thomasville, Georgia. Game 1 against the Night Hawks is scheduled to get underway at 1:00 p.m.
