Flames Upset In League Tournament
May 9, 2013
CHICAGO - The top-seeded UIC softball team saw its season come to a close Thursday at Flames Field as No. 3 Valparaiso defeated the Flames 3-1. Junior Jenna Marsalli went the distance with a solo homer in the bottom of the seventh inning to try to salvage the Flames' season.
Both teams struggled to get the bats moving in the outing. The Flames and Crusaders notched only three hits each.
Valparaiso collected two runs in the fourth frame and another in the sixth for the three-run total. Despite the solo shot by Marsalli, the Flames couldn't rally enough and concluded the game in a 3-1 decision.
