The IU softball team made a bit of history this past weekend with its two-game sweep at Minnesota. The win on Saturday was the first against the Golden Gophers since 2004 and then the victory on Sunday gave the Hoosiers a sweep, the first since 1994 versus Minnesota. Earlier in the week, the Hoosiers went 1-3 in a pair of doubleheaders with Evansville and Ball State. Freshman pitcher Jessica Dobson gave up just two hits against Evansville to log her second shutout of the season.
Saturday's game was a pitcher's duel with Sara Olson coming out on top, 1-0, thanks to a RBI triple from senior Jennifer Glueckert in the sixth inning. Then on Sunday, Indiana was ready to go from the start as it scored seven runs in the first inning and never looked back in an 8-3 victory.
LUCKY NUMBER 7
TWICE AS NICE IN THE TWIN CITIES
Over the last 15 seasons, the Minnesota Golden Gophers have had the Hoosiers number every year it seemed. Starting with the 1995 season, Indiana was just 5-27 and had not claimed victory since 2004. Going back even further, Indiana had not swept a season series with Minnesota since the 1994 season. It should be noted that the Big Ten moved to two games versus each conference foe at the start of the 2000 season. Prior to that it was three games against each team and at one point it was even four games against each team.
She has a trio of three-hit games to her credit this season, including a three-hit effort against Belmont where she also scored three runs, and seven two-hit games, both of which are tops on the team. Saucedo is also a perfect 11-for-11 in stolen base attempts and has 3 in the last 4 games.
