The Michigan Women's Softball team had a wonderful opening day yesterday by claiming 2 wins. The Wolverines won the first game against Southern Illinois 19-5 in a 5 inning mercy rule victory. Senior Jordan Taylor was in the circle for the Wolverines for her first win of the season. She struck out six batters and allowing five hits -- all in the third inning -- and two earned runs. The Michigan offense exploded for 19 runs off of 19 hits led by sophomore second baseman Ashley Lane's three hits.
In the second game against host Houston, Sophomore RHP Stephanie Speierman made just her fourth collegiate start, allowing three hits and striking out three through four innings of work.Senior firstbaseman Dorian Shaw hit a three run homer in the third inning to lead the #11 ranked Wolverines.
We play again today at 10am EST against the Ohio Bobcats, and then against Stephen F. Austin in the second game at Noon EST in Houston.
We have a dominating team this year and should make it past the super regional this year. I think Hutch has the right mix again. So GO BLUE!!
