RUSTON, La. – The Florida Atlantic softball team lost to Louisiana Tech 4-0 in the rubber game of a weekend series on Sunday.

Samantha Messer and Bianca Duran were locked in a pitchers’ duel for the early portion of the game. Neither team was able to score through the first four innings, in part due to spectacular defensive plays made by both teams. The Lady Techsters (13-22, 4-8 C-USA) broke through in the bottom of the fifth. Tech led off the inning with a double, advanced when Messer was called for an illegal pitch, then scored on a squeeze play.
