Badgers Wyderski's walk-off double lifts Wisconsin past Iowa

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis. (Per Wisconsin Athletics) – The Wisconsin softball team (25-7 overall, 4-5 Big Ten) won its final game of the series against Iowa, (9-23, 3-6) 6-5, in a 10-inning thriller at Goodman Diamond on Sunday afternoon.

It was ultimately a double from Brooke Wyderski that allowed Kelsey Jenkins to come home and seal the win for the Badgers, who emerged from the weekend 2-1 against the Hawkeyes.

The game entered extra innings tied up at 4-4 after a huge sixth inning from UI where runs from McKenzie Schneider, Angela Schmiederer and Cheyenne Pratt erased the Black and Gold’s 4-1 deficit.

Wisconsin had a chance to put the game away in the seventh inning with Gabby Scherle up to bat and Jordan Little on third, but Scherle grounded out giving the team their third out and ultimately sending to game to extra innings.

Iowa kept their momentum going into extras, going up 5-4 following a single to left field from Claire Fritsch in the ninth that let Schmiederer score, but the Badgers came back to tie things up, 5-5, after a hit by Scherle let Jordan Little come home to extend the game to the 10th inning.

In regulation, the Hawkeyes got on the board first in the third inning after Kaitlyn Mullarkey doubled to right center allowing Lea Thompson to run home, but it wasn’t long until the Badgers were able to claim the lead.

In the bottom of the inning, Chloe Miller put the team up on top, 2-1, after smashing a home run that brought both her and Jenkins home.

UW extended its lead to 4-1 in the fifth inning thanks to a double from Melanie Cross that sent Heather Rudnicki to home plate and a single from Stephanie Lombardo that allowed Cross to come full circle.
