No. 6 Eagles split with No. 4 Bears

BOONE - Bradee Bouman tossed a complete game and got lots of support from her offense Saturday as sixth-ranked Kirkwood topped No. 4 DMACC, 8-3, in the second game of their ICCAC doubleheader in Boone.

DMACC nipped the Eagles in the opener, 2-1.

The DMACC Bears lead the conference standings at 11-1. NIACC, which is ranked seventh in the country, sits in second place at 10-3. Kirkwood is in third place at 9-3 in the tight race among three top-10 ballclubs.

Bouman (13-3) allowed two earned runs on six hits in the 8-3 victory in the nightcap. Lauren Kuch went 3-for-5 and scored twice. London Jackson was 2-for-4 with two runs, two RBIs and her 13th home run. Lauren Klaahsen, Jayme Finn and Autum Barthelman had two hits in a 16-hit attack.

Kirkwood had only three hits in the 2-1 loss in Game 1. Klaahsen hit a double and Shelby Hulsebus had a triple. Erin Hocker (14-6) was the tough-luck losing pitcher, allowing two runs on four hits.

Kirkwood is 28-9 overall. DMACC is 28-5.
