* Softball Season Ends with 6-5 Loss to #5 Creighton

The University of Evansville softball team lost a heartbreaking 6-5 decision to the #5 Creighton Bluejays in the first game of the 2012 State Farm Missouri Valley Conference Tournament. The Aces led the Bluejays 4-3 going into the sixth inning, but the game was ultimately decided by a two-out three-run home run by Creighton’s Christa Ruf in the bottom of the frame. 

Sophomore Katie Sears, junior Tamara Robey, and senior Amy Gaertner all ended the game with a pair of base hits as the Aces tallied nine hits on the day.

Sophomore Emily Morris takes the tough-luck loss in the circle, allowing two runs on four hits in 2.0 innings of work. Junior Sarah Patterson scattered four hits and allowed four runs in 4.0 innings in the start.

The Aces finish the 2012 season with an 18-37 record.
