Oct. 11, 2003
Chicago, Ill. - The UIC softball team mounted another seventh-inning rally at the 'Battle in the Windy City' Tournament at Flames Field on Saturday afternoon, but for the second straight game the Flames came up short, falling 4-2 to DePaul.
With the loss, UIC falls to 0-2 in the tournament while DePaul finishes the event at 2-1.
Senior Alycia Creese highlighted the Flames' seventh-inning rally with a line drive, two-run homer to left. The blast was just the second hit of the day off DePaul starter Sarah Martz.
UIC would keep things going following Creese's homer, putting runners on first and second with two outs, but Martz retired Jennifer Reusnow to end the game.
Martz earned the win, surrendering just the two hits while fanning two. UIC senior Alison Aguilar was pegged with the loss, allowing three earned runs and 10 hits in six innings of work.
DePaul got on the board early versus the Flames, taking a 2-0 first inning lead.
Saskia Roberson tallied the first run with a sacrifice fly to right, then Christina Douglas (2-for-4) drove in the second with an RBI single to center.
The Blue Demons would later add single runs in the fourth and fifth innings.
Freshman Elizabeth Jacoby tallied one of UIC's two hits on Saturday with an infield single in the second inning.
The Flames will be back in action later this evening when they wrap up the tournament by taking on Northwestern at 7:15 p.m.
