Today, Tara Oltman outpitched the Salukis’ ace Danielle Glosson. Oltman went seven innings and allowed just two runs on four hits while walking three and striking out six. Glosson gave up a two run homer to Renae Sinkler in the fifth inning to give CU a 3-1 lead. Southern Illinois scored a run in the bottom of the seventh and had the tying run on third.
