SOFTBALL: Tulsa beats Purdue to split Day 2 of LSU Classic

BATON ROUGE, La. — The Tulsa softball team defeated Purdue, 4-1, and fell to No. 10 LSU in 10 innings, 1-0, to split the second day of the Tiger Classic at Tiger Park.

In the first game of the day, senior shortstop Samantha Cobb went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored, and Aimee Creger struck out nine batters to lead the Golden Hurricane (3-1) to a 4-1 win over Purdue. Cobb singled, doubled and tripled in the game.

Creger (2-0) allowed just four hits and one earned run in the complete-game victory. Senior center fielder Caitlin Everett, junior third baseman Jill Barrett and sophomore first baseman Julie Kernen each scored a run for the Golden Hurricane. Senior catcher Cassidy Bowen and junior right fielder Haley Henshaw also drove in runs for TU.

In the game against LSU, Middlebrooks and Rachele Fico dueled for nine scoreless innings. Middlebrooks (1-1) pitched a two-hitter, struck out three batters and allowed seven walks. Fico (2-0) struck out 14 and allowed five hits. The international tiebreaker went into effect at the start of the 10th inning, and LSU earned three walks in the bottom of the inning to plate the winning run.

In the game against Purdue, the Hurricane got on the board in the first inning when Everett led off with a single, and TU loaded the bases with a double by Cobb and a walk by Bowen. Everett scored on a throwing error at third base.

Purdue scored its only run in the second inning when right fielder Andie Varsho hit a one-out double and scored on a single by second baseman Ashley Burkhardt.

In the fourth inning, Kernen led off with a single to right center, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt, and scored on Henshaw’s single to right center.

The Hurricane added two more runs in the top of the seventh when Barrett hit a one-out single to right and scored on Cobb’s triple down the right field line. Bowen’s RBI ground out plated Cobb.

In the LSU game, Middlebrooks fought out of trouble several times, as the Lady Tigers had a runner in scoring position with fewer than two outs in each of the fourth through eighth innings, but the TU defense held strong each time. The Hurricane had baserunners in the fourth, fifth, sixth and ninth innings, including runners at first and third in the sixth, but was unable to cross the plate.
