hit and later scored on a passed ball. Two innings later, senior
Plemon smacked a solo home run, trimming the deficit to 3-2.
In the top of the seventh inning, lightening forced the suspension
of the game, which was later made final after six innings.

12-3. Junior pitcher Kristen
Emerling was tagged with the loss and is now 7-7
NOTES: Plemon now ranked second in the conference with
11 home runs and first with 42 RBI.
