    Box Score

    Las Vegas, Nev. - The UIC softball team suffered its fourth consecutive defeat and fourth loss this season to a nationally ranked squad as the Flames fell, 9-1, in five innings to #25 Long Beach State on Friday morning at Eller Media Field in second-day action at the Las Vegas Classic.

    UIC, which is now 7-8 on the year, will continue its run versus Top 25 competition later this afternoon when it tangles with #11 Oklahoma.

    The Flames stayed within striking distance on Friday morning versus the 49ers (10-6), trailing by just a 2-1 margin after a third-inning RBI double by senior Cameron Astiazaran.

    Long Beach State would get to UIC starter Mercedes Lovato over the next three frames, though, tallying a single run in the bottom of the third, before three-run outbursts in both the fourth and fifth innings led to the final 9-1 margin.

    LBSU senior Lauren Johnson, who was 3-for-3 at the plate on the day, ended the contest with a three-run homer in the fifth. It was her fourth home run of the season.

    Lovato allowed nine runs, eight earned, on 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings. She is now 5-2 this season.

    Marcel Torres picked up the win for the 49ers, allowing just one run on four hits to move to 5-4 on the year.

    Astiazaran led the Flames at the plate, going 2-for-2 with an RBI.

    Freshman Nicole Robinson and junior Joyce Cathey also recorded hits for UIC.
