DE PERE - St. Norbert College banged out 12 hits in the nightcap of a doubleheader against Carroll University to gain a split of the non-conference games at Miron Construction Field at Mel Nicks Sports Complex, winning the nightcap 10-4 after dropping the opener 4-1.

St. Norbert (7-5) fashioned a pair of big innings to pull away from the Pioneers (10-7) in the second game. The Green Knights held a 2-1 lead until scoring five times in the fourth inning and three times in the fifth stanza to take control.

Each team scored an unearned run in the first inning and St. Norbert added a run in the second inning when Randi Morack's grounder brought home Ashley Zimmerman, who had doubled. In the fourth inning, pinch-runner Madison Earing went from first to third on a sacrifice bunt and then scored on a throwing error. Whitney Baumann reached on a bunt single, followed by a single from Morack and a walk by Allison Knop. Carley Frauenhoff then emptied the bases with a three-run double down the right-field line. Alyssa Sikora's RBI single then finished off the rally.

After Carroll scored twice in the fifth inning, Sarah Koltermann led off the bottom of the fifth with a home run. Knop then drove in Zimmerman with a single and Knop later scored on a wild pitch. Carroll would get one run in the sixth inning but would leave the bases loaded.

Baumann was 2-for-2, while Frauenhoff was 2-for-3 with two runs scored and three runs batted in. Knop and Zimmerman each scored two runs.

Ellie Olsen earned the complete-game win, scattering 11 hits with one walk and four strikeouts.

In the opener, Carroll scored three runs in the second inning and added one in the fourth to take a 4-0 lead. St. Norbert would get a run back in its half of the fourth after Frauenhoff doubled and scored on a Taylor Ullman single. The Green Knights would leave two runners in scoring position in the fourth inning and the bases loaded in the seventh inning.

Frauenhoff finished 2-for-4 for the Green Knights, who finished with seven hits. Emma Molenhouse took the loss, allowing eight hits and three earned runs with no walks and two strikeouts.
