CLERMONT, Fla. — Shannon Murray fired a one-hitter as the Lawrence University softball team beat Benedictine (Ill.) University 2-0 on Saturday.
Murray struck out five and didn’t walk a batter in the first one-hitter of her career. Murray tossed a no-hitter against Grinnell College on April 14, 2012.
The only hit for Benedictine (0-1) was a one-out bunt single in the seventh inning. That runner was erased when she was thrown out attempting to steal so Murray faced the minimum of 21 batters.
Lawrence (2-1) scored both of its runs in the fifth inning. Cathy Kaye started the rally with a one-out walk, and Alex Chiodo followed with a single. Murray then doubled to score both runners with the only runs of the game.
Lawrence was limited to only four hits in the game by the Eagles,¬†who won 33 games and the Northern Athletics Conference in 2012.Tags: recap
