Softball season ends

Jessica Hall gave up only three hits to IPFW and the UCLA softball team defeated the Mastodons 8-0 on Saturday to end IPFW's season at the NCAA Regional in Louisville, Ky.

Hall went six innings, striking out six and walking one, before Ally Carda finished the game for the Bruins (38-19).

IPFW's pitcher, Miranda Kramer, gave up four runs and eight hits, while striking out five, in 6 2/3 innings.

Her replacement, Megan Flenniken, succumbed to four runs and three hits before getting an out in the seventh inning.

It came a day after the Mastodons (34-16) lost 2-1 to host Louisville.

IPFW's only hits Saturday came from Hillary Kartman, Brittany Kachur and Larissa Franklin.

The game was scoreless until the fifth inning, when Stephany LaRosa had an RBI single.

In the sixth, the Bruins went up 2-0 on Devon Lindvall's home run.

And the six-run barrage in the seventh began with a B.B. Bates RBI double.

A Carda single scored one.

Then, there was an Britney Rodriguez single that scored two and a Jessica Hall triple that allowed two to score on a throwing error.

Before going to Louisville, the Mastodons had won 6 of 7 games, losing only to North Dakota State in the Summit League Championships.

The Mastodons avenged that loss in the final game at Fargo, N.D., to advance to Louisville.
