The #2 Michigan Softball team spanked Western Michigan today at Alumni Field 6-1.   It pushed our record to 36-3.  Game time temperature was 56 degrees under sunny skies with a slight north wind.  Hutch had the girls in the road unis today.

The game could have been ugly early but Hutch put the brakes on.  She made changes early to allow the reserves players some reps.

Colie Sappingfield went 3 for 3 with 2 RBIs and a run scored.  Ashley Lane was 3 for 3 with a double and an RBI.  Bree Evans went 2 for 3 with 2 runs scored.

Stephanie Speierman was given the ball today and gave up 1 unearned run while surrendering 1 walk along with 2 Ks and 4 hits.  She went 5 complete.  Hilary Payne continued to administer the pain as she was brought in to pitch in releif and picked up the save.  Payne pitched the final 2 innings.  Payne gave up no runs, 1 hit and recorded 3 Ks with no BBs.

We play Central Michigan University tomorrow at Alumni Field at 6pm.
