CLERMONT, Fla. --- Colby College first-year shortstop Emily Schatz had an RBI single to drive in Meaghan Lewia from third base to give the Mules a 7-6 victory over Carroll in non-conference softball on Thursday.

The Mules, now 4-4 overall on their spring trip to Florida, fell 7-1 to Loras College in a game earlier Thursday.

International rules were used to start the eighth inning, putting a runner at second base to start the frame. Lewia was put on second and moved to third on a sacrifice bunt by Carylanne Wolfington. Schatz followed with her big hit to go 5-for-5 on the day.

Lindsay Peterson went 3-for-3 and Lewia went 3-for-4 for the Mules in the win against Carroll. Lewia scored twice and drove in a run, while Peterson had one run. Wolfington had two hits, two RBI, and scored one run. Carolyn Bennett scored twice, Eric Pulford had one hit and scored one run, and Brianne Wheeler drove in a run and had one hit.

Megan Michie came on in relief in the third inning and went the rest of the way to earn the victory.

In the first game against Loras, Schatz went 2-for-3 and scored the lone run. Lewia also had two hits, while Pulford smacked an RBI single.
