St. Peter, Minn. – The Gustavus softball team will travel to St. Paul to take on St. Catherine University in a Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) doubleheader on Tuesday afternoon. The Gusties enter the contests with a record of 16-12 overall and 10-4 in the MIAC, while the Wildcats are 7-19 overall and 5-9 in league play.
Gustavus is most recently coming off a sweep over Macalester on Saturday. The Gusties defeated the Scots 11-4 in game one before taking game two by the final score of 6-4. An eight-run bottom of the first was all Gustavus would need to control the first game. Trailing 4-3 in the second game, the Gusties came roaring back to score three runs in the bottom of the sixth to capture the two-run win.
St. Catherine last played on Saturday as well, losing to St. Thomas 10-2 in game one and 8-0 in game two. The Wildcats were eight-run-ruled in both games, as each lasted just five innings. The Tommies scored runs early and often, controlling each contest from the start.
