College Softball: Iowa Wesleyan Splits with Eureka

Mount Pleasant — The Iowa Wesleyan softball split a pair of games with Eureka yesterday, dropping game one 5-3, while picking up a game two win, 11-0.

It was nearly a sweep if not for a late game one rally by the Red Devils.

Eureka scored four times in the 7th while trailing 3-1 to come from behind for the win.

Wesleyan stranded 14 baserunners in game one while pounding out 13 hits.

Haiden Molter, Kara Krieger and Alexis Davis all had three hits while Nicole Shirrell had two.

Molter took the loss in the circle, working six innings allowing seven hits and five runs all earned.

In game two the Tigers rode a six-run 4th inning to a run rule win.

Wesleyan got a two-out two-run double in the first by Ivy Geerdes to open the scoring and never looked back.

Julia Hill had a pair of doubles and two runs batted in, while Kylie Topliff was perfect at the plate with walk and two RBI as well.

Abby Dameron was the winning pitcher, tossing a complete game shut-out allowing just four hits and a walk while striking out four.

The split moved Iowa Wesleyan to 4-21.

Wesleyan will be back in action on Wednesday, when they battle Waldorf in a doubleheader.

Game one will start at 2:00 p.m.
