COLLEGE SOFTBALL: Grenadiers split doubleheader with Asbury

Leanhart earns 10th win in opener

JEFFERSONVILLE — The IU Southeast softball team split a KIAC doubleheader with Asbury on Thursday, winning Game 1 by a score of 1-0 before falling 4-1 in nine innings in the nightcap.

Jessica Leanhart (10-2) pitched a two-hit, complete-game shutout to pick up her 10th win of the year in the opener. She struck out 11 and walked two batters.

The Grenadiers (22-9, 12-2 KIAC) scratched across the only run of the game in the fourth inning. Brookelyn Visker singled, which was followed by as single by Shelby Lucas and an error on a bobble by Asbury rightfielder Kendall Anderson allowed Visker to advance to third. Jade executed a perfect sacrifice bunt to score Visker.

In Game 2, the Grenadiers trailed 1-0 until the bottom of the sixth when Katelyn Heines doubled to score Lucas, who had singled and advanced to second on a groundout.

The Eagles were unable to score in the top of the seventh with no outs and the bases loaded and the Grenadiers went down in order so the game went to extra innings.

After a scoreless eighth, the Eagles struck for three in the top of the ninth. A miplayed ball by Heines allowed Cassidy Flynn to reach base and Abbie Bowling scored what proved to be the game-winning run. Back-to-back doubles by Hill and Anderson scored the final two runs for the Eagles.

Madison Ray (6-2) took the loss in relief of Jenna Swain.
