<P><B>TERRE HAUTE, Indiana - </B>
The University of Dayton Flyers were swept on Tuesday by the Indiana State Sycamores in a doubleheader at Price Field.
<P>The Flyers were downed 6-2 in the first game, and lost the second game 5-1 despite out-hitting the Sycamores 9-7.
<P><A HREF="http://www.fansonly.com/schools/dayt/sports/w-softbl/mtt/lafayette_erin00.html" >Erin Lafayette</a> picked up the first loss of the day after allowing 11 hits and striking out four. <A HREF="http://www.fansonly.com/schools/dayt/sports/w-softbl/mtt/rappe_eva00.html" >Eva Rappe</a> collected the loss in game two after striking out six batters in five innings pitched.
<P><A HREF="http://www.fansonly.com/schools/dayt/sports/w-softbl/mtt/crabtree_blair00.html" >Blair Crabtree</a> racked up three hits on the day and drove in one runner. <A HREF="http://www.fansonly.com/schools/dayt/sports/w-softbl/mtt/matthews_laura00.html" >Laura Matthews</a> complemented the effort going 3-for-7 and scoring one RBI.
<P>Indiana State jumped out to an early 3-0 advantage in the second inning. The Flyers fired back in the third picking up two runs thanks in part to a base hit by Crabtree and then a ground out by Matthews.
<P>The two tallies brought the Flyers within one run of the lead before Indiana State's Meredith Simpson hit a three run blast to seal UD's fate in the sixth inning.
<P>In game two both teams seemed determined to pace each other. The Sycamores got on board early with a run in the first inning only to be matched by a run by <A HREF="http://www.fansonly.com/schools/dayt/sports/w-softbl/mtt/schrank_mollie00.html" >Mollie Schrank</a> in the third inning.
<P>A pair of two run innings put Indiana State ahead and kept them ahead for the rest of the game, despite Dayton accumulating nine hits in the contest.
