Game Recap: Softball | | Taylor Alward, IUPUI Sports Information

IUPUI earned a dramatic 7-5 win in the first game of the series with the Golden Grizzlies.

INDIANAPOLIS – IUPUI earned its first win of the league season in a dramatic 7-5 win over Oakland in Game 1 of the double header to close out the series with the Golden Grizzlies. The Jags dropped Game 2 by the score of 12-1 in five innings.

IUPUI 7 – Oakland 5
In the first game of the day, IUPUI got major production form the top of its lineup as the top three batters went a combined 7-for-12 , scored four runs and drove in five. Overall, seven Jags finished with a hit on the day as IUPUI scored a season-high seven runs and matched the season high with 11 hits.

The scoring got started in the second as a play full of miscues allowed an Oakland sacrifice bunt to turn in to two runs.

IUPUI took advantage of an Oakland error in the bottom of the inning as Maicey Bedrick reached to lead off the inning on a dropped fly ball in left, allowing Bedrick to end up a third. Rachael Gregory hit a sacrifice fly to cut the lead in half but the Jags were not done. A single and double had the Jags threatening and Morgan Gilbert singled to center to score both Kasie Keyes and Jasmin Speth.

After a pitching change for Oakland, IUPUI kept things going. Lauren Youngblood single to the wall in right center to score Gilbert and a single by Jennah Speth scored Youngblood to put IUPUI up 5-2.

Oakland got a run back in the fourth off of another IUPUI error but the Jags added two in the bottom of the inning after Jennah Speth's ground ball was thrown wide of first. That throw allowed Gilbert and Youngblood, who had both singled earlier to touch home and make it 7-3 IUPUI.

Oakland cut the lead in half in the top of the fifth with a double and two run home run but starter Lexi Lucas was able to get out of the inning with a strikeout and foul out.

IUPUI had a chance to add runs in both the fifth and sixth innings but double plays ended any threat for the Jags.

In a game marred by errors, seven in total, it was IUPUI's defense that came up big in the win. Oakland had runners on second and third with one out in the top of the seventh down two. Cammie Brummitt, who hit the earlier home run, hit a fly ball to left field that was caught by Bedrick. Bedrick's throw home was just in time to get the runner to end the game for IUPUI.

Youngblood's three hits marked the second-straight three-hit game for the freshman. Jasmin Speth earned her first-career hit in the win.

Lucas earned the win for IUPUI, moving to 2-3 on the season with four strikeouts and no walks.

OAKLAND 12 – IUPUI 1 F/5
The second game of the day, and final of the four game series was not what IUPUI had drawn up as the Jags fell to Oakland in five innings.

Two IUPUI errors in the second inning allowed the first two runs of the game to score for the Golden Grizzlies. IUPUI got a run back in the bottom of the inning with a two-out single by Abby Haas. Rachael Gregory scored on the play after reaching on a fielder's choice earlier in the inning.

Oakland added to its lead in the third with one-out solo home run and the next four Golden Grizzlies reaching base. By the time IUPUI got the next out, Oakland had stretched the lead to 5-1.

IUPUI got a runner to third in the third as Gilbert singled to lead off the inning, stole second and moved to third on a wild pitch with one out but a line out and ground out ended IUPUI's last real threat of the afternoon. In total, IUPUI managed just three hits on the day.

Oakland put the game out of reach, batting around in the top of the fourth. The first six Golden Grizzlies reached base and Oakland scored seven runs on IUPUI to take a 12-1 lead that would eventually be the final score.

UP NEXT
IUPUI will hit the road for its first Horizon League series away from Indianapolis. The Jags will make the trip to Cleveland State to play the Vikings for four games with double headers on both Friday (March 19) and Saturday (March 20).
