Bradley played a doubleheader in Peoria, IL against conference rival Northern Iowa on April 8, 2010. The Braves jumped out to 1-0 leads in both games, but Northern Iowa’s Courtney Dunker hit homers in the third inning of both games to help power the Panthers to 10-2 and 9-2 wins Thursday at Laura Bradley Park. Freshman Taylor Cox scored all four of BU’s runs on the afternoon and was 2-for-3 with four walks to lead Bradley in the two games.
Cox opened the game with a leadoff walk in the opener and reached base safely in each of her first six plate appearances on the day. After Cox moved to second on a sacrifice bunt, she came around to score on a double to left center by Kate Singler to give Bradley (11-21 overall, 2-8 MVC) an early 1-0 lead.
