BOCA RATON, Fla. - Four players recorded multiple RBI and Aimee Creger pitched a three-hit shutout as Tulsa defeated Loyola Marymount, 9-0 (5 inn.), Friday at the FAU Strike Out Cancer Tournament at the FAU Softball Complex.

Creger (2-1) struck out eight batters in the five-inning game. Junior shortstop Samantha Cobb tallied three RBI, and junior center fielder Caitlin Everett, senior second baseman Skylar Swanson and junior designated player Lacey Middlebrooks each drove in two runs for the Golden Hurricane (6-2).

Everett, who went 3-for-3, led off the game with a bunt single and Cobb followed with a one-out RBI double to center field. She scored when Middlebrooks doubled to right field to give TU a 2-0 lead.

Sophomore left fielder Cierra Hughes, Everett, sophomore third baseman Jill Barrett and Cobb hit four straight two-out singles to add three more runs in the second inning. Everett's base hit up the middle drove in Hughes, while Cobb's single scored Everett and Barrett.

After a scoreless third frame, the Hurricane came back with four runs in the fourth inning. Hughes, Everett and Barrett once again teamed up with back-to-back-to-back singles to score one run and put runners on first and third. Swanson hit a one-out double to left field, plating Everett and Barrett, and Middlebrooks followed with an RBI single to score Swanson and give TU a 9-0 lead.

Creger only allowed runners past first base once, and that was in the fourth inning when LMU loaded the bases with three singles. A ground out to short ended the threat by the Lions.
