The Colonials sit at 9-7 after dropping four tight games against quality competition at Carolina Softball Field at Beckham Field.In Sunday's finale, Sierra Lange matched counterpart Elizabeth Engler pitch-for-pitch until the fourth inning when Liberty broke through on Deidra See's RBI double. The Flames (13-5) added another run in the fifth and two more in the sixth to build their lead.
Lange allowed two runs in five innings, finishing the weekend with a 2.47 ERA over 17 innings in three starts, all against clubs that advanced to postseason play last spring. The freshman from Texas posted four strikeouts against one walk on Sunday.
