WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue Sports) — The Dayton Flyers needed nine innings to defeat Purdue by a score of 6-3 at Bittinger Stadium. Giana Lopez gave a solid bid at her second victory in as many days while Emily Kenny and Stephanie Ramsey fueled the offense in Purdue's final midweek test prior to its next Big Ten series.

Lopez delivered six innings of allowing just two runs and five hits against the Flyers following her first collegiate victory Tuesday against Fort Wayne. Emily Kenny and Stephanie Ramsey were consistent offensive threats throughout the contest as they combined for seven of the 10 hits recorded by the Boilermakers. Kenny finished 4-for-5 with a double in the four hole while Ramsey went 3-for-4 with an RBI in the six spot.

Jenny Behan and Alexa Binckes both singled with Behan adding a walk and a run scored to her line. Sophomore transfer Halle Hixenbaugh singled, scored and drove in a run while freshman Rachel Krzysko doubled and scored.

Dayton jumped on the board first in the third inning but the Boilermakers were able to respond promptly in the bottom of the inning to tie the game at one going into the fourth. Behan drew a one-out walk that led to a run on a RBI single by Hixenbaugh following the double by Kenny that moved Behan into scoring position. Hixenbaugh then gave the Boilermakers the lead going from first to home on a single by Ramsey and an error by the right fielder in the fifth inning.

Dayton was able to score runs in the sixth and the seventh to take a 3-2 advantage going into the bottom of the inning in which Ramsey scored Krzysko from second on an RBI single to right. However, Dayton was able to keep the Boilermakers off base in the final two innings in order to earn the 6-3 victory.

Purdue travels to Madison, Wisconsin, to take on the Badgers in its next Big Ten series beginning Friday at 6 p.m. ET.
