Freshman Nikki Naffziger took the loss in the opener, fanning nine Flyers, but allowing three earned runs. She fell to 11-7 on the year. Junior Meghan Howard got the call in the nightcap and allowed just one run and three hits in six innings of work, but fell to 0-5 on the season.

Eight different Bulldogs recorded hits during the doubleheader, including doubles from Andrea Walker and Ashley Barry. Butler combined to leave 14 runners on base in the two games.

Butler returns to action Friday with a doubleheader at IPFW. The first pitch is set for 3 p.m. The team then travels to Detroit for a weekend Horizon League series. Butler is 5-2 in conference play this season.
