TERRE HAUTE, Ind.-- The Rose-Hulman Fightin' Engineers were able to come away with a win after splitting their doubleheader against the Bluffton Beavers.  This improves the Engineers to 6-18 overall and 2-8 in the HCAC.  

Game one was a tough showing for the Engineers after falling behind early.  The Beavers were able to come away with the win with a final score of 23-0 after five innings.

The second game of the day proved to be a competitive contest.   Both teams were all tied up 3-3 in the bottom of the second.  A homerun by Emily Struble was able to push in a run by Rhiannon Turner to put the Engineers ahead 5-3 in the fourth.  The team was able to score two more runs in the inning by Angela Boulboulle and Christina Gray to increase their lead to 7-3.
