Badgers deliver 1-2 punch over Hoosiers

first_imgBEN CLASSON/Herald photoWith the sun shining down on Goodman Diamond in Madison Tuesday afternoon, the Wisconsin softball team (23-13, 5-5 Big Ten) swept past the Indiana Hoosiers (19-23, 1-9 Big Ten), winning 5-3 and 7-1.The Badgers used quick starts in both games to obtain early leads. In the second game of the doubleheader, UW grabbed a 3-0 lead in the first inning.With one out, Badgers designated hitter Ricci Robben came to the plate with the bases loaded. Robben drew a walk to bring in catcher Joey Daniels, for the first run of the game.Alexis Garcia, the next batter for the Badgers, drove in two more runs with a base hit up the middle.The fourth inning would also be productive for Wisconsin. The Badgers batted around in the inning, as four more runners came in to score.Wisconsin’s starting pitcher Letty Olivarez led off the inning by reaching base on an error by Indiana pitcher Christy Wahl. After Olivarez bunted the ball to the pitcher’s circle, Wahl threw it underhand to first base, but the throw was high.Lynn Anderson followed with a base hit to right field, advancing Olivarez to second.Daniels, who reached base six times between the two games, drove in Olivarez with a double to deep left field.”We moved (Daniels) to the one spot last week, and she has done a phenomenal job,” UW head coach Chandelle Schulte said. “Her job is just to have a good at-bat. It doesn’t even matter if she gets on or not, just have a good at-bat, set the tone and have a nice presence up there.”Olivarez, earning her eighth win of the year, shut down the Hoosiers for six innings before finally suffering a run in the seventh off the bat of Kim Richards, who homered to deep left center.It was essentially the same story in the first game of the day, as Wisconsin swung its way to an early 4-0 advantage in the first inning.Daniels started off the first inning by walking on four pitches, the first of her four walks of the day. Samantha Polito then reached base on an infield bunt single.With hits in both games, Polito extended her hitting streak to 11 games, the longest streak on the team this season.A walk by Katie Hnatyk loaded the bases for Athena Vasquez, who also drew a walk to bring in Daniels. Robben recorded the inning’s first out but managed to drive in a run on a sacrifice fly to center. Another run would come across to score after Garcia’s infield hit bounced off the glove of Indiana shortstop Emily Bergeson. Theresa Boruta would then double to the left to bring in the final run of the inning, putting UW up 4-0.Wisconsin would add one more in the third when Vasquez, who doubled to lead off the inning, scored on an error by third baseman Jennilee Huddleston.Indiana tried to answer in the fourth, as the Hoosiers were finally able to put three runs on the board in a big way.Huddleston reached first on an error by Vasquez, and second baseman Sarah Padove laced a base hit to left. The next batter, Rachel Terry, drove herself and her teammates in with a three-run blast to left center off of UW pitcher Eden Brock.The home run wouldn’t be enough as Brock calmed down to finish the complete game victory, her seventh complete game and 12th victory of the season. Brock also struck out eight batters on the day, bringing her season total to 145.”I was a little upset we gave up the three runs,” Schulte said. “We need to capitalize. We had a 5-0 lead, and we can’t let people back in the ball game. … We’ve got to shut the door. We talked a lot about that in between games, and I felt like we did that better the second game.”The Badgers finished the season series with Indiana at 3-0, after having beaten the Hoosiers 5-0 earlier in the season at the USF Speedline Invitational. Wahl was charged for Indiana’s loss in the second game, while Monica Wright lost game one.”We already beat them earlier this season, and I think we knew that we should come in and take two from them,” Polito said. “We just came out and wanted it more than they did today.”last_img read more
