CHICAGO, Ill. — Carli Gurholt blasted a grand slam in the seventh inning, but the Lawrence University softball team dropped a 6-4 nonconference decision to the University of Chicago on Sunday at Stagg Field.
Chicago (17-8) scored five times in the first and led 6-0 heading into the top of the seventh.
Lawrence (10-12) loaded the bases in the seventh on a fielder’s choice and a pair of singles. Gurholt then smacked a two-out grand slam to cut the lead to 6-4 but that’s where the rally ended.
Cathy Kaye and Alissa Geipel, who were both aboard when Gurholt homered, both went 2-for-4¬†to pace the Vikings.
Sarah Neuhaus went the distance for Chicago and allowed¬†eight hits while striking out seven and walking two. Shannon Murray¬†pitched the entire game for Lawrence and took¬†the loss.Tags: recap
