CONWAY, Ark. — Becca Changstrom was two outs from a no-hitter as Creighton concluded play at the Central Arkansas tournament by beating Grambling State 10-0 in five innings Sunday.
The Bluejays (5-4) connected on 10 hits and took advantage of three Grambling State errors. Freshman Kelsey Allender capped the scoring with an inside-the-park homer.
Allender finished with four RBIs, while Amy Baker and Alexis Cantu had two hits apiece. Changstrom, a junior from Lincoln Southwest, allowed an infield single in the Lady Tigers’ next-to-last at-bat while striking out seven.
Creighton returns to action next weekend at the UTA Maverick Invitational hosted by Texas-Arlington. The Bluejays open with two games Friday, facing the hosts and then Lamar.
