Illinois 2, Minnesota 0
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Entering the final series of the 2011 regular season, the Fighting Illini and the Minnesota Gophers softball teams opened their two-game series with an extra-innings pitcher's duel on the Big Ten Network.

Gophers starting pitcher Sara Moulton also went the distance, answering Gay over the first eight frames before the Illini offense created the difference at the plate. Meredith Hackett broke the scoreless tie in the ninth inning with an RBI-double down the left field line - the eventual game-winning run. Jessica Davis followed with an RBI-single to double the lead and reach the final score, 2-0. RECAP
