THE BASICS

The Billikens notched a run in the fourth. Wise singled with two away and eventually scored on Tarquinio’s bases-loaded walk.

The two-out magic continued in the seventh when Wise hit her first collegiate home run, a two-run blast, after two were retired to increase the SLU advantage to 6-0.
