COLLEGE SOFTBALL: Grenadiers split doubleheader with Point Park

IU Southeast's Batliner smacks homer in opener

NEW ALBANY — The IU Southeast softball team split a doubleheader with Point Park to open a weekend series between two of the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference’s top teams.

In Game 1, Jordan Batliner hit a two-run home run to left field to put IU Southeast up 2-1 after an inning of play. The home run was her third of the year.

The second inning was a series of defensive miscues led to a six-run inning for Point Park. IU Southeast committed three errors and gave up seven hits in the inning. The Grenadiers never recovered and fell 9-3 in the opener.

Madison Ray took the loss after giving up seven runs, five earned, in one and a third innings.

In Game 2, the Grenadiers scratched out a run in the bottom of the second as Summer Sanders singled to center to score Jade Detzer from second.

After Ashley Morran hit a two-run home run to left to give Point Park the lead 2-1 in the top of the fourth, the Grenadiers responded with two runs of their own in the bottom of the frame. A weakly hit ball by Sanders back to the pitcher Megan Dyer allowed Brooke Barnett to slide underneath the tag. A double by Shelby Lucas would score Jessica Leanhart to give the Grenadiers the lead.

Leanhart (11-2) did the rest.  She gave up two runs — one earned — and struck out two while walking four to pick up her eleventh win of the season.

The Grenadiers continue their series with Point Park on today at 1 p.m. on Senior Day.

The Senior Day events will take place after the conclusion of Game 1.
