Game 2 Recap - #21 Truman 7, Rockhurst 1
Andrea Klipsch and Kelsey Bollman each drove home two, and Kelsea Dorsey tossed a three-hitter to help Truman secure a 7-1 victory in the nightcap.
The Bulldogs used a five-run second inning to put the Hawks in an early 6-0 hole, after a delayed double steal resulted in Klipsch touching home in the first for an early 1-0 edge. Then, in the second, Truman had first and third with one out, before Danielle Lewellen brought home Liz Leath on a bunt. Klipsch then drove home Caroline Gatti from third, setting up a Bollman two-RBI double out to right field for a 5-0 Bulldog lead. Bollman would come around to score on a fielding error by the RU center fielder later in the frame.
Truman would get one more in the sixth when Klipsch flied out to center to plate Lewellen for the team's seventh run of the game.
While the offense pounded out 10 hits, Dorsey kept the Hawks off the board, save for a solo shot in the bottom of the second. She struck out six to earn her 13
victory of the season
