Spartans split with ICCC with seventh-inning rally
On the verge of starting the conference season with a doubleheader defeat at home Thursday, the Southwestern softball team rallied in the bottom of the seventh to defeat Iowa Central in the nightcap, 8-7.
The Spartans trailed 7-5 entering their last at-bat. Iowa Central, riddled by six players dismissed for disciplinary reasons the previoius night — including three pitchers — was unable to hold off the Spartans with a stretch of wild pitching.
Southwestern took advantage of two walks and three batters hit by pitch before first baseman Leah Kipfer stroked the game-winning hit, driving in the winning run for the 8-7 victory.
