Cabe pitched all six innings for Harvard, doing her best to give the team a chance. Though she recorded two errors, the real problem was Harvard’s offensive woes.
The Crimson’s bats disappeared, and Harvard went scoreless for the next four frames. Down, 6-3, heading into the final inning, Lange doubled to left centerfield, advancing to third on a throw and driving in classmate Olson.
“Kasey (Lange) has been a great leader,” sophomore pitcher Morgan Groom said. “She was our leader last year and again this year. She shows it with her bat.”
On an error by the shortstop, Lantz was then able to advance Lange home for the run. Nonetheless, down only one run, Harvard failed to complete the rally.
Junior Amanda Hansen recorded the win for LBSU, as Harvard’s offense was unable to find any more production in the final frame.
