No. 7 Luther wrapped up its annual spring trip to the National Training Center Spring Games with a 8-0 five inning victory over Williams (MA). The win was sweet revenge for the Norse who dropped their first game of the spring games to Williams 1-0.
After holding a 2-0 lead after three, the Norse exploded for four runs in the fourth and two in the fifth en route to the win.
Miranda McCay produced the game winner with a two-run double in the bottom of the fifth to end the game. Kelsey Rose drove in two runs in the fourth. Hiliary Pennington and Lindsey Uphoff both had multiple hit outings going 2-for-3 at the plate and scored two runs each.
Becca Girvan (8-1) tossed a one-hit shutout. Girvan faced 20 batters, walked four and struck out seven.
The win increased Luther's overall record to 15-2. Williams fell to 7-5.
The Norse are scheduled to host No. 12 Central College for the Iowa Conference opener on Tuesday, April 1 at home. This double header will begin at 3:00 p.m.
