MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee closed out its tournament play with a 2-0 loss to Coastal Carolina at the Chanticleer on Sunday.

Jordyn Fisherback took the loss, dropping to 1-9 on the season, but allowed just three hits and only one earned run. Additionally, she struck out five CCU batters.
