INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay (15-13, 2-5 HL) softball team was edged by second-place Butler (23-15, 9-3 HL) in a cold and cloudy Horizon League doubleheader Saturday, April 16 at the Butler Softball Field.

Game 1 - Green Bay 0, Butler 4 - Butler scored its first run in the bottom of the second inning before adding three in the bottom of the fifth to shutout the Phoenix in game one. The Bulldogs totaled four runs off three hits.

Green Bay's lone hit of the game came in the fifth inning when Paige Newtols (Green Bay, Wis.) led off with a single to center field.

Sophomore Tieraney Planasch (Juneau, Wis.) pitched her third complete game of the season while striking out five Bulldogs.

Game 2 - Green Bay 0, Butler 2 - The Bulldogs scored both of its runs in the bottom of the second off an RBI double.

Sophomore Cassie Scheel (Hartland, Wis.) had Green Bay's first hit in the top of the fifth inning with a single to the pitcher. The Phoenix added another hit in the top of the sixth when freshman Miranda Reinke (Milwaukee, Wis.) singled to shortstop. Reinke later advanced to second off a SAC bunt by Sara Junion (Egg Harbor, Wis.) but the Phoenix came up empty handed in the 2-0 loss to Butler.

Freshman Ashley Nannemann (Burlington, Wis.) pitched the second complete game of her collegiate career while striking out one batter.

Green Bay will wrap up its three-game series with the Bulldogs Sunday, April 17 at 12 p.m. The Phoenix will make a stop at Loyola (16-16, 6-3 HL) on Tuesday, April 19 for a doubleheader against the Ramblers at 5 p.m. followed by a 3 p.m. contest Wednesday, April 20.

The Phoenix will return home Saturday, April 23 as it hosts Detroit (5-23, 0-8 HL) in a doubleheader beginning at 1 p.m. before wrapping up the series Sunday, April 24 at 11 a.m. at Ben Garot Field.
