BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The Baker University softball team split its fifth consecutive doubleheader on Saturday, with a 4-1 loss in game one and 2-0 win in game two over Evangel University.

The Wildcats are now in sole possession of third-place in the Heart of America Athletic Conference standings with a 16-10 overall mark and 8-4 conference record.

In game one, Summer Kelley provided the Wildcats with what proved to be its only run with a solo home run in the bottom of the second inning over the left field wall.

Then Evangel pitcher Lenzie Boring shutdown the Wildcats for the remainder of the contest and the Wildcats were unable to score another run.

Baker managed just two hits after the second inning and Evangel scored one run in the fifth and three runs in the sixth all off of Erin Greenwood.

In game two, the Wildcats bounced back to split the series with a run in the fourth and fifth innings.

In the fourth, Kelley hit her second home run of the day with a solo shot over the left field wall.

In the fifth, Renata Dill doubled to deep left field scored Peyton Weekly to score the final run of the game.

Greenwood went all seven innings and gave up just five hits and struck out seven batters.
