    FIRST PITCH
    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
    After winning the first game against Minnesota by a score of 1-0, Indiana came out the next day looking determined at the plate. They quickly put seven runs on the board in the top of the first inning, the most runs scored in an inning this season. The last time Indiana scored seven runs in an inning was April 1, 2008, when they did it in the fourth inning at Kentucky as part of a 16-13 victory.

     

     

    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.

    B-SAUCE
    Freshman Breanna Saucedo was the straw that stirred the drink for the Hoosiers at the plate in Mississippi and has continued that for most of the year. She leads the team with 42 hits and is the team leader with 21 runs scored. She has yet to go back-to-back games without getting a hit this season and had an eight-game hit streak snapped in the first game at Minnesota. She did come back in the the second game against the Golden Gophers with a two-run single.

    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.
