By WSIL Sports

CARBONDALE -- SIU's softball team played host to Evansville in a doubleheader on Wednesday. 

In game one, Evansville jumped out to a 2-0 lead but the Salukis battle back. In the bottom of the third inning Allie VadeBoncouer hit a three-run homerun to give SIU the 4-2 lead.

Then in the bottom of the sixth inning, Taylor Orsburn hit a grand slam as SIU claimed the 9-4 victory.

In the nightcap, SIU once again spotted Evansville an early lead before rallying.  The Aces grabbed a 3-1 lead before the Salukis exploded for six in the second on their way to a 12-4 win in six innings.

The Salukis welcome Loyola to Carbondale for three starting with a doubleheader Friday.
