Green Bay Drops Series Finale at Wright State
DAYTON, Ohio (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay softball team went for a sweep of a three-game Horizon League series at Wright State on Sunday, but the Raiders used a strong pitching performance by Krystian DeWitt to win the contest 5-1.
Wright State got on the board in the second inning with a pair of runs against Green Bay starter Allison Goecks (Beloit, Wis.), who picked up both wins on the mound in the doubleheader sweep on Saturday. The Phoenix got on the board in the top of the third inning with a bases loaded walk by Paige Newtols (Green Bay, Wis.) to cut the margin to 2-1.
WSU would plate two runs in the bottom of the third and another in the sixth inning for the final margin. The Phoenix got doubles from both Miranda Reinke (Milwaukee, Wis.) and Amanda Pozolinski (Appleton, Wis.) in the third and sixth innings, respectively, but both players were stranded.
Green Bay will return to action with a pair of non-conference doubleheaders this week, beginning on the road at Wisconsin on Wednesday in a pair of contests televised by the Big Ten Network. The Phoenix will then host North Dakota on Thursday with game one slated for 2 p.m.
