Area Colleges: UIS sweeps Eureka in softball

The University of Illinois Springfield got to experience two kinds of victories in its sweep of Eureka on Tuesday.

The Prairie Stars took a 3-2, nine-inning win in the first game and then brought out the offense for a 13-4 victory.

In the opener, UIS scored what would be the winning run in the top of the ninth when Tina Buck drove in Brianne Moeller with a sacrifice fly. Moeller was also the winning pitcher, allowing just two earned runs and striking out five in nine innings.

The win was featured in a March 24, 2010, article in the State Journal-Register.
