To avoid the bad weather coming in this weekend, softball is playing IU in a doubleheader today at the Wilpon Complex. The Wolverines opened their Big Ten & home schedules in style, blowing away the Hoosiers in an 8-0 6-inning run-rule affair.
Wagner starred in the circle, going the distance and earning the shut-out while scattering 6 hits. She also helped her own cause at the plate, with two hits & 2 RBI, drawing a walk as well. IU's pitching was clearly terrified of Sierra Romero, as she did not even get an at-bat in game 1, drawing 4 walks, more than once with runners aboard.
The game ended on a bases loaded double by Taylor Hasselbach in the bottom of the sixth. Game two of the twin-bill will start shortly.
