But that was the only time the Lady Govs were able to accomplish that, as Lipscomb scored two runs in the second inning, three in the third and four in the fourth for their nine runs in the nightcap.

Neely would lead the Lady Govs with two of their five hits in Game 2, while de Castro, senior Ashley Bolda and freshman Sarah Rasmussen had the other hits.
