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.
