In a battle between the top teams in the North Coast Athletic Conference, The College of Wooster softball team dropped a pair of contests at DePauw University on Sunday, 3-1 and 2-0.
The ability to score with two outs played a major role in game one, while in game two Wooster recorded just two hits.
DePauw made it 2-1 in the bottom of the inning on another two-out hit with a single to center field.
The Tigers then scored again in the fifth after starting pitcher Olivia Johnson recorded strikeouts on the first two batters she faced. A walk and an error allowed DePauw to score on a double steal.
Marissa Norgrove started and took the loss. She went five innings, giving up one earned run.
DePauw's two runs came on balls that stayed in the infield. A fielder's choice brought home a run in the first, and a sacrifice bunt made it a 2-0 game in the third.
Wooster falls to 22-10 and 9-2 in the NCAC, while DePauw improved to 20-10 overall and 10-0 in the conference to remain in first place.
The Scots will look to get back in the win column Tuesday when they host Hiram College.
