CHICAGO, Ill. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay (19-20, 8-8 HL) softball team wrapped up its three-game series at UIC (22-23, 8-7 HL) with a 2-1 loss to the Horizon League opponent Thursday, April 26 at Flames Field in Chicago, Ill.

After four-and-a-half scoreless innings, the Flames took a 2-0 lead with four hits, including an RBI single and RBI sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fifth inning.

With two outs in the top of the sixth, Danielle Peerenboom (Appleton, Wis.) hit a single to advance Amanda Omahen (San Diego, Calif.) to second base and Jessica Hrncar (Bristol, Wis.) to third. Miranda Reinke (Milwaukee, Wis.) followed with an RBI single to center field, scoring Hrncar to cut the Flames lead in half, 2-1.

The Flames retired the side in the top of the seventh to capture the 2-1 win over the Phoenix.

Green Bay finished with seven hits in the game with Peerenboom leading the way going 2-for-3 from behind the plate. Omahen, Reinke, Paige Newtols (Green Bay, Wis.), Stacey Butts (Greenfield, Wis.) and Alli Rivera (Geneseo, Ill.) also each registered one hit for the Phoenix. Pitcher Alli Goecks (Beloit, Wis.) went the distance for Green Bay from the mound, striking out four batters through six innings of work.

The Phoenix continues its eight game road stretch with a three-game series against Wright State Saturday, April 28 before playing its final road series in a nonconference doubleheader against in-state rival Wisconsin Wednesday, May 2 at 3:00 p.m. at Goodman Diamond in Madison, Wis.
