BEXLEY, Ohio – The Wilmington College softball team’s bats remained cold in a pair of losses Friday at Capital University, 5-0 and 7-4.
Game one was very similar to the doubleheader at the WC Softball Complex as the Fightin’ Quakers simply could not solve Brianna Shearer. The Crusader hurler won her third game of the series allowing three hits and striking out 10.
Lindsey Carter took the loss in the circle for Wilmington. Three Quakers – Arianna Layne, Carter and Lizz Hadley – had singles in the game.
In the nightcap, Alecia Kemp singled home Megan Crager in the top of the first, but Capital answered with a two-out grand slam in the fourth and plated two more in the fifth. Wilmington added two runs in the sixth and one in the seventh.
Hayley Suchland took the loss allowing five earned runs on four hits in 2.2 innings pitched.
Wilmington concludes the 2021 regular season with a 16-24 overall record and a 15-21 mark in OAC play.
