A freshman softball pitcher was perfect today. Although not the freshmen you probably would have guessed. Freshman Sarah Schaefer threw a 5-inning perfect game against Robert Morris (on her birthday no less!!) in the 1st slate of Michigan softball's double header today as the Wolverines took down RMU 14-0. It was a shortened game, sure, but is it really her fault that her teammates scored 14 runs in 5 innings?
Stat Line: 5 IP, 0 H, 0 BB, 0 R, 6 SO
Kind of weird stat: the wolverine lineup scored 14 runs on only 9 hits and 12(!!) walks. Seriously, at one point, an RMU pitcher walked the bases loaded and then proceeded to walk in 4 runs.
The scoring started in the 1st inning with Madison Uden and Taylor Swearingen both hitting 2-run homeruns and really just ballooned from there. The team would then score 1 in the 2nd, 3 in the 4th and 6 in the 5th to run-rule the completely over-matched Robert Morris Colonials.
