In game two, Olson was 3-for-3 with an RBI and Bergeson homered again and drove in two runs while scoring a pair of runs as well. The home run could not have come at a better time, with the Hoosiers and Badgers tied at 2-2 in the bottom of the fifth inning. Not only did Olson have a day at the plate, she also pitched all seven innings to earn her fourth victory of the year.
Evansville last played against Butler last week after their weekend series against Wichita State was cancelled due to rain. The Aces defeated the Bulldogs by a combined score of 15-1 in the doubleheader.

April Fool's 2008 Revisited
First, let's start with the final score: Indiana 16, Kentucky 13. That alone would spark the interest of just about anyone. Then you add in the fact that it was an extra inning game and the intrigue builds that much more. The game seemed to be a normal game as the two teams headed to the fourth inning. In the top of the inning, the Hoosiers scored seven runs on nine hits to take an 8-3 lead. But that lead didn't last long as UK scored six in their half of the inning to retake the lead at 9-8. But the IU bats were not done as they plated five more in the top of the fifth to regain a 13-9 advantage. The Wildcats were trailing by one going to the bottom of the seventh and scrapped that run up to force extra innings. In the only extra frame, the Hoosiers scored three runs and held the Wildcats off the board to earn the win.
