    HOOSIERS SPLIT WITH BUCKEYES

    Columbus,Ohio--The Indiana softball team (7-17-1, 1-4) today split their double header with Ohio State, winning the first game 8-2, but losing the second 4-2.

    To end their five game losing streak, the Hoosiers started off with a bang as freshman Jennifer Pullon hit her first career home run. Ohio State tied things up in the third, but Indiana kept pulling away.

    In the fourth, Monica Armendarez put her name a top the record books one more time with her fourth home run of the season breaking Michelle Venturella's career mark. The short stop hit 3-4 with six RBI and two runs.

    The offense was alive in the fifth when the Hoosiers hit four singles and scored three runs. The Cream and Crimson built in some insurance with two more runs scoring in the seventh as Armendarez grabbed her fifth homer of the season.

    Sophomore pitcher Teresa Martinez (4-7) went the distance giving up six hits, no walks while striking out four batters.

    The second game told a much different tale. Buckeye pitcher Kristi Martin (4-2) evened the series with her efforts alone. She allowed only two runs and six hits while striking out eight Hoosiers.

    The offensive came in the fourth with singles from Trina Valencia and Ashley Gayer, and Erica Del Toro brought them home with a two-run single. Valencia had the hot hand in the second game going 2-3 with one run.

    Freshman pitcher Jennifer Kniptash dropped to 3-9. She threw the full seven innings walking one and striking out one.

    Indiana:----8--10--3
    Ohio State:---2--6--3

    SECOND GAME
