EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. - Lindsay Friedman and Alyson Brand tallied two hits apiece Wednesday afternoon in Saint Louis' 2-0 loss at Southern Illinois Edwardsville.

Friedman reached base all three times she stepped to the plate, singling in the second and fifth innings and drawing a walk in the seventh. Brand singled in the fourth and sixth innings.

However, the Billikens (19-24) failed to score off SIUE hurler Amanda Lambrecht (15-10), who struck out three, surrendered four hits and three walks and hit a batter.

Saint Louis put two runners aboard in the second and seventh innings. But the Billikens had a runner caught stealing to end the second and stranded two in the final frame.

SIUE (19-23) plated single runs in the second and fourth off Hannah Huebbe (10-10). Huebbe fanned three and yielded three hits and three walks.

The Billikens play a doubleheader at Evansville Thursday before hosting Charlotte in an Atlantic 10 Conference doubleheader Saturday at noon.
