UNI softball completes sweep of Southern Illinois

Posted: Updated:

 Chelsea Ross went the distance completing a 5 inning shut-out as UNI completed the weekend sweep of Southern Illinois with an 8-0 win.

The Panthers (12-16, 6-2 MVC) did nearly all their offensive damage in the first inning, scoring 7 runs on 6 hits. That barrage included a pair of home runs, Kristin Lock knocked a 2-run shot with one out in the inning, but the big blow came moments later. With the bases loaded, Julia Hunter hammered her second long ball of the weekend for a grand slam and a 6-0 lead.

Ross, meanwhile, took care of business on the mound allowing just 1 hit to the Salukis. The junior has allowed just 2 hits in her last 4 appearances, while surrendering 0 runs.
