UCA defeats Lipscomb

The University of Central Arkansas defeated Lipscomb 12-6 in six innings in the finale of their three-game set Sunday at Farris Field in Conway.

The Bears took two out of three against the Bisons.

Although UCA (27-16, 12-6 ASUN) had just one hit and no runs in the first two innings, the hosts posted 3 runs in the third and fourth innings, 2 in the fifth and 4 in the sixth inning. The Bears ended the game on a Morgan Nelson grand slam that put the Bears up 12-2 and invoked the 10-run rule.

Nelson also had an RBI double as part of a three-hit day and UCA's top third of the order -- Jenna Wildeman, Tremere Harris and Mary Kate Brown -- each gave Lipscomb (17-28, 7-11) fits with two hits apiece.
