No. 9 Luther improved to 8-1 defeating UW-Stevens Point 9-4 this morning in Greenville, Ill. This game was called after five innings due to poor field conditions from snow and rain that had been falling prior to the first pitch.
Luther exploded for seven runs in the bottom of the second and added two more in the third. The Norse took advantage of Pointers mistakes as five of their runs were unearned due to errors and passed balls.
Anna Strien and Bailey Victoria both drove in two runs in the second, while Natalie Stockman and Bailey Hocker were also credited with an RBI in the same frame.
Samantha Bratland improved to 4-1 allowing four runs on five hits, walking five and striking out five.
Luther will be off until March 24-31 when it will make its annual spring trip to the PFX Spring Games in Clermont, Fla. The Norse are scheduled to play 11 games during this trip.
