Kimble's One-Hit Shutout Lifts Softball to Split at Judson

ELGIN, Ill. – The Purdue University Calumet softball team took a game from one of the league’s top teams in Judson University in Monday’s doubleheader split on the road.

The Peregrines (22-18, 12-8 Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference) fell in a close one in Game 1, 4-3, but bounced back for a 1-0 shutout victory over the third-place Eagles (28-11-1, 17-2-1).

Senior Alison Kimble (Greenup. Ill./Cumberland) delivered the game-winning hit and picked up the shutout win in the circle in the one-hit, complete game effort.

 

GAME 1: JUDSON 4, PURDUE CALUMET 3

The Peregrines out-hit the Eagles 10-7, but Judson came up with the game-winning run in the fifth inning and held on down the stretch for the opening win.

After Judson opened the game with a run in the first to take a 1-0 lead, the Peregrines quickly answered with two runs in the second to make the score 2-1 in favor of the visitors. After an Olivia Donley (Bourbonnais, Ill./Bradley) walk and Kimble double set up runners on second and third, junior Jess Loy (Skokie, Ill./Niles North) brought in a run with an RBI single to center.

Senior Ashley Adams (Lafayette, Ind./Central Catholic) added another RBI-single to cap the Peregrines’ scoring in the frame. Judson, however, responded with a pair of runs of its own in the bottom of the second on three hits and an error to regain the lead at 3-2.

An Alicia Ward (Mishawaka, Ind./Jimtown) double and advancement on a wild pitch set up an Alex Morales (Bartlett, Ill./Bartlett) sacrifice fly in the fourth to once again knot the game, this time at 3-all.

But the Eagles answered with a sac fly score of their own in the fifth that proved to be the game winner.

Ward, Adams, and Loy went 2-for-4 and Donley was 2-for-3 to lead the Peregrine offense in the setback.

 

GAME 2: PURDUE CALUMET 1, JUDSON 0

Alison Kimble recorded one of her best performances of the year in a one-hit shutout, and she helped her own cause with the game-winning RBI single in the sixth inning.

The Peregrines were held to just five hits by Judson starter Katelyn Kirker (11-3), but recorded three in the fifth that proved to be all they would need. Ashley Adams started the rally with a one-out single, and senior Skyler Woods (Beecher, Ill./Beecher) added a two-out single to put runners on first and second.

That set up Kimble, who connected on a single to center field to give the Peregrines a 1-0 lead.

Kimble did the rest down the stretch, as she retired the next six Judson batters to end the game.

She finished with two strikeouts and didn’t walk a batter in a seven-inning outing. Woods went 2-for-2 and Alicia Ward, Adams, and Kimble accounted for the Peregrines’ hits in Game 2.
