Kaitlyn Richardson drove in two runs, giving her 24 RBI this season and 105 in her Gophers career. Sara Moulton earned her 96th career win, pitching 4⅔ innings and striking out seven. Nikki Anderson took over in the fifth inning and earned the first Gophers save of the season.

Gophers fall in baseball

Mark Tatera’s RBI single drove in the only run for the Gophers in a 4-1 loss to North Carolina Greensboro in Myrtle Beach. S.C.

Max Povse pitched a five-hitter for Greensboro, outdueling the Gophers’ Ben Meyer, who gave up one run and five hits and struck out six in seven innings. The Spartans broke it open on Jordan McDonald’s tiebreaking two-run single in the eighth against Lance Thonvold.
