CLERMONT, Fla. — Salve Regina University scored an unearned run in the bottom of the seventh inning to edge Lawrence University 3-2 in a nonconference game on Friday.
With the score tied 2-2 and two outs, the Seahawks loaded the bases with the help of an error and an intentional walk in the final inning. A slow roller on the infield allowed the final hitter to reach base and the winning run to score.
Shannon Murray went the distance and took the loss for Lawrence. She allowed six hits, struck out six and walked four. All three runs scored by the Seahawks were unearned.
Lawrence, which had five hits, scored both of its runs in the fifth. Cory Paquette, who went 2-for-3, drove in both runs for the Vikings. Mary Diduch also went 2-for-3 for the Vikings.
