No. 8 Luther posted its 13th win in a row defeating UW-Stevens Point 6-4 in today's second of two games at the PFX Spring Games in Clermont, Florida. The victory was also the third over the Pointers this season.
Luther tallied 10 hits led by Ashley Burrows, Bailey Victoria and Addy Pender who all had two each. The Norse jumped to a quick 4-0 lead in the top of the first and added a run in the second and fifth frames.
The Pointers responded with a run in the first and three in the second that knocked out Norse starter Courtney Cooper. Natalie Stockman took over in the circle in the third and pitched 3 1/3 innings before she was replaced by Samantha Bratland in the middle of the sixth with the bases loaded and one out. Bratland proceeded to strike out the final two batters in the sixth and retired the side in the seventh. Stockman was credited with win, her second of the year and Bratland picked up her first save.
Luther is now 17-1 overall. UW-Stevens Point fell to 11-12.
Luther will wrap up its spring trip to Florida tomorrow with a twin-bill agianst Colby College (ME). First pitch is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. EST.
