Castiglione, Ingalls lead YSU softball to split at UIC

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO, Ill. - Junior Sarah Ingalls ripped a one-out single to left field in the top of the eighth inning to lift the Youngstown State softball team to a 6-5 win over UIC in game two of a doubleheader on Saturday afternoon. Freshman Miranda Castiglione went 3-for-4 with four RBIs. 

The Penguins improve to 14-21 overall and 8-9 in the Horizon League while the Flames move to 20-21 overall and 13-4 in the league. 

After walking the leadoff batter in the bottom of eighth, junior Casey Crozier, who picked up her 12th win of the season, retired the next three batters to seal the victory. Crozier, who scattered seven hits, struck out five in the complete-game win. 

With the game tied at 4-4 after six innings, junior Courtney Ewing singled home Samantha Snodgrass, who singled and reached second on an error, with two outs to put the Penguins up 5-4. 

UIC's Michelle Preish hit a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh to force extra innings.

Castiglione's RBI-single in the top of the first gave YSU a 1-0 lead before the Flames scored three in the bottom of the second to go up 3-1. 

In the top of the third inning, Castiglione's two-out bases-loaded double off the top of the center field wall cleared the bases to score Kelly Stowe, Ewing and Snodgrass, who all singled, and put the Penguins up 4-3. 

The Flames knotted the game at 4-4 with a two-out single in the bottom of the sixth. 

Snodgrass, Ewing and Stowe each had two hits for the Penguins, who totaled 11 in game two. 

In the opener, senior Vicky Rumph hit a solo home run as the Penguins tallied just two hits in the 5-1 loss. 

The Penguins and Flames close out the series, Sunday, at Noon.
