Freshman Caitlin Klobosits, who retired the side in order in the first inning, took the loss to fall to 6-6 on the season. Jaimie Castellano came in relief in the fourth.

In the nightcap Mansfield starter Melissa Baer and Bloomsburg’s Cait Paine were locked in a pitching dual with Bloomsburg holding a 1-0 lead off three innings. But in the fourth, Bloomsburg exploded for seven runs, four of them off a grand slam by Emily Young.
