Softball: Butler takes three of four games

The Butler softball team went 3-1 in conference play last weekend.

The Bulldogs (17-19, 6-4) split a double-header with Fordham Sunday.

In the first game, Rams (25-16, 9-5) senior Jamie LaBovick hit a home run over the left field wall to start the game.

Fordham scored two more runs in the second inning before being shut out by junior Leah Bry. But it was enough.

Rams sophomore pitcher Michele Daubman blanked the Bulldogs, finishing with three strikeouts and no walks.

In game two, Butler struck first, scoring a run in the bottom of the fourth inning on a double by junior Krista Hakola.

Fordham countered in the top of the sixth with another home run from LaBovick.

In the top of the eighth LaBovick scored on a fielder’s choice to take a 2-1 lead.

In the bottom of the eighth, sophomore Kristen Boros reached on an infield single. Boros scored on a single by freshman Audrey East.

Senior Devin Brierly came in to pinch-run and scored the winning run off a hit from senior Devin Dearing.

On Saturday, the Bulldogs swept conference opponent La Salle in a doubleheader. The final scores were 15-1 and 2-0.

The team is at home this weekend with doubleheaders against St. Joseph’s and Temple.
