Voss goes 4-for-4 in 7-2 win over Drake


Aces take weekend finale in Des Moines

 DES MOINES, Iowa – Freshman Brooke Voss went 4-for-4 with two runs to pace the University of Evansville softball team to a 7-2 win over Drake in the weekend finale at Ron Buel Field.

Voss accounted for four of the Purple Aces 13 hits in the contest.  Alexa Davis went 3-4 with three runs and two RBI while Taylor Howe had two hits, four RBI and a run.

Drake plated the first run of the game in the bottom of the first before Evansville countered with a 2-run second.  Voss and Davis both reached on singles and would score on a 2-run double from Howe.

After the Bulldogs tied it up at 2-2, UE took control with a 3-run top half of the fourth.  Voss and Marah Wood recorded singles and would each score on a 2-run double to right field by Davis.  Zoe Frossard added a 2-out triple that scored Davis to make it a 5-2 game.

Taylor Howe put the finishing touches on the day with a 2-run home run in the sixth.  After Davis led off with her third hit of the afternoon, Howe’s long ball pushed the lead to 7-2 and that would be the final score.

Sydney Weatherford got the job done in the circle once again.  She gave up two unearned runs on six hits while walking just one batter.  Weatherford struck out four Bulldogs.

Next weekend, the Aces take to the road once again for a 3-game series at Southern Illinois.
