The Lincoln Varsity softball team suffered a tough 2-1 loss to Del Campo Tuesday.

With the score 1-1 in the top of the seventh inning, Del Campo's winning run came on a close play at the plate when Megan Wantz slid under the tag of Lincoln catcher Shye Mosier.

Leadoff batter Abi Lund went 2-for-4 on the afternoon, including an in-the-park home run to tie the game in the fifth inning.

Alyssa Rodriguez pitched seven strong innings allowing five hits and striking out two.

Her best stretch came after getting out of a bases loaded jam in the first inning. After that scare, the sophomore pitcher went on to set down eight-straight batters.
