2009 Regular Season Ends With 2-1 Win Over FIU; SBC Tourney Up Next

Becky Brandies went 3-for-4 and scored both Owl runs as Florida Atlantic University defeated rival FIU 2-1 in nine innings on Saturday night.

FAU (27-28, 10-13 Sun Belt) got on the board first in the bottom of the fifth inning when Brittany Walker doubled in Brandies for a 1-0 lead. The Golden Panthers immediately responded as Kim Rodriguez singled up the middle, scoring Katie Bell and tying the game.

FIU had the bases loaded with one out in the top of the ninth, but Kat Stauffer got Jasmine Parra to ground into a 5-2-3 double play to end the threat. Brandies led off the bottom of the inning with a single to left before stealing second. After a Golden Panther pitching change and a strikeout, Walker came up again. This time, she grounded to short, but an errant throw by Desiree Fink allowed Brandies to score the game winning run.

Stauffer threw her second complete game in a row, allowing just one run and striking out seven to secure the win.

FAU next enters Sun Belt Conference Tournament play as a number seven seed. They will face Troy Wednesday at 1:30PM EST.
