Spartanburg, S.C. -- The Youngstown State softball team dropped a pair of games on day two of the Pepsi Classic hosted by USC-Upstate. The Penguins lost to Radford, 3-1, before a 9-1 five-inning defeat to Furman on Saturday.
With the losses, the Penguins fall to 2-11 on the season.
In the opener, freshman pitcher Maddi Lusk was the hard-luck loser tossing a complete game and allowing just three runs while striking out six.
