Game One Box Score | Game Two Box Score

BOLIVAR, Mo.-Senior first baseman Tiffany Carter broke Northwest Missouri State's single-season RBI record in the final game of her collegiate career. Carter drove in two runs in an 11-3 loss to Southwest Baptist Saturday giving her 51 this season, two more than the mark she posted to earn the record last season.

Northwest lost game one 5-1 before falling in six innings to the purple Bearcats in game two. The losses end the Bearcats' season at 13-38.

Carter's two-run double in the top of the first inning of game two broke the record and gave the green Bearcats a short-lived lead. Southwest Baptist countered with three runs in the second, third and fourth innings to complete the doubleheader sweep.

Southwest Baptist sophomore Josie Rosa pitched a two-hit gem in the opening game. The lone run she allowed was unearned. Rosa struck out six and walked three in her complete-game effort.

Northwest combined for eight hits during the twin bill. Megan Simpson had two hits including a double in her final collegiate contests. Erin Leslie had two hits on the day and scored half the Bearcats' four runs.

Carter led the team with a .355 batting average this season - her second as a Bearcat. Her 11 home runs this season are tied for the second-most in program history.

Carter drove in a run in 23 games and in 18 plated two runs or more. Carter was leading the MIAA in RBIs entering play this weekend.
