LOUISVILLE, Ky. ­- Saint Louis softball concluded play at the University of Louisville's Red and Black Classic Sunday, falling 8-3 to Illinois State and 9-0 in five innings to No. 16 Louisville.

Kelsey Biggs registered a pair of RBI doubles for the Billikens against Illinois State (13-10), while Alyson Brand and Katie Kroeger collected two hits apiece.

SLU took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second as Brand and Biggs rapped consecutive doubles to start the inning. Illinois State answered with two runs in the top of the third and made it 7-1 with a five-run sixth inning. The Redbirds added an insurance run in the seventh.

The Billikens plated single runs in the sixth and seventh. Brand singled with two outs in the sixth, stole second and scored on Biggs' double. A walk to pinch hitter Kelly Flanagan and Kerri Dockins' single loaded the bases, but the rally inflicted no further damage.

Erin Harcar's solo home run in the seventh, her second of the year, accounted for SLU's final run.

Starter Hannah Huebbe (6-4) absorbed the loss. Kelcie Matesa pitched the final 4 2/3 innings and struck out seven.

In the nightcap, Louisville (18-0) struck for four runs in the first and pushed across five more in the fourth against Julian Austin (2-4). Flanagan had the only two hits for the Billikens (11-13).
