Jim Franz/Beloit Daily News Beloit College catcher Kaity Grzeszkiewicz makes a swipe tag to retire Rockford University’s Brooke Burris (10) Sunday. Beloit spli a twinbill.

BELOIT — Starting pitcher Shania Johnson worked out of a tense situation in the seventh inning and Beloit College’s softball team held on for a 3-2 win over visiting Rockford University and a split of their home-opening double-header Sunday.

Rockford (2-8) took the opener, 5-0.

The Buccaneers (2-10) needed a strong pitching performance in the nightcap and got one from Johnson, who scattered five hits. She worked around seven walks and struck out five.

Rockford did score a run on a wild pitch in the second inning, but the Bucs tied it in the bottom of the inning when Alussa Boltik singled in Johnson, who had led off the inning with a double. The Bucs took a 2-1 lead in the third inning as Ashley Lambert’s single drove in Madi Christine, who had led off with a triple.

In the fourth, Emalie Thern led off with a double and took third on a groundout. Pinch-hitter McKenzie Hallett doubled to center to drive her in and make it 3-1.

Johnson stranded five Regent runners over the next three innings. Rockford loaded the bases in the seventh, but could only cut the deficit to one. Johnson got a groundout to third baseman Lambert with the tying and lead runs in scoring position to end the contest.

April Apfelbaum was 2-for-3 to lead the Bucs’ eight-hit attack.

In the first game, Rockford scored two unearned runs in the top of the first and added three more scores in the fifth for the only scoring of the game. Beloit had four hits, two from Lambert, including a double, and a Christine triple.

The Bucs are off until they host Alverno College in a doubleheader on Saturday, starting at 1 p.m.
