Indiana 7, Michigan State 2
EAST LANSING, Mich. - It might not have been the prettiest game that the Indiana Hoosiers (29-15, 9-2 Big Ten) have played this season but the bats came alive in the late innings in the 7-2 win against Michigan State (21-19, 3-8 Big Ten) at Secchia Stadium in East Lansing, Mich, extending the Hoosiers' win streak to nine games. The Hoosiers committed five errors in the first four innings but the Spartans were only able to score one run thanks to the continued dominant pitching of Morgan Melloh, who registered 11 strikeouts.

Iowa 4, Michigan 2
ANN ARBOR, Mich -- The University of Iowa softball team knocked off top-ranked Michigan, 4-2, Saturday night at Alumni Field. The victory is the Hawkeyes' first over a No. 1 ranked team since the 2005 season. "The team did a nice job of coming out and jumping on them early and staying with them," said UI head coach Marla Looper. "They had some chances where we could have sat on our heels and let them take control, but we did a good job of holding them, and Chelsea Lyon did an exceptional job in the circle." RECAP
