IMS Defeated by WMU

Iowa Mennonite softball got their offense started in the first inning with singles by Rubye Ney and Avery Blauvelt. Ney then scored when Harris reached on an error. The game remained 1-0 until WMU exploded for six runs in the bottom of the fourth inning on 4 hits and 2 errors. IMS scored once more in the 5th when Ney singled, advanced on Blauvelt’s fielder’s choice and scored on a single by Harris, but it wasn’t enough to contain the Wolves. Harris took the loss for IMS. She surrendered seven runs on nine hits over six innings, striking out six and walking one. Ney was 2-4; Blauvelt, Harris and Alyssa Hershberger each singled for IMS.
