Benedictine's softball team split its non-league doubleheader versus Wheaton College, winning the first game (11-3) and losing the second (20-5). The Eagles are now 8-4 overall in 2009. Sophomore first baseman Cassie Cappetto was 5-for-7 in the twinbill. Cappetto scored three runs and drove in four on the day, lacing a pair of doubles among her hits. Designated hitter Lisa Rybak was 3-for-5, including clubbing a three-run home run in the first inning of the game two setback. Rybak also had a double in the first game and scored three times, as well. The Game No. 1 winning pitcher was freshman Brittany Adcox, improving her personal mark to 6-2 and a 1.27 earned run average. In the win over Wheaton - shortened to five innings by the "mercy rule" - Adcox struck out four and walked just one. Sophomore Sam Corban absorbed the loss in Game No. 2, falling to 1-1 on the season from the circle. Corban worked 3 1/3 innings and gave up 13 runs (10 earned).
