Iowa 1, Illinois 0 (10)
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- It took three hours and 12 minutes and there were 375 pitches thrown before the University of Iowa softball team got a bases loaded walk from freshman Melanie Gladden to give the Hawkeyes the 1-0 victory and series sweep over Illinois on Sunday afternoon at Pearl Field. "I was proud of our team for sticking in there and battling," said UI head coach Marla Looper. "Offensively, we didn't take advantage of some opportunities early and defensively, Chelsea did a nice job on the mound and our defense played phenomenal behind her. You just hang in there until you get a run across the plate." RECAP

Nebraska 5, Minnesota 4 (8)
Minneapolis - Freshman Mattie Fowler delivered a two-out, RBI single in the top of the eighth inning to lift the Nebraska softball team to a 5-4 extra-inning win at Minnesota in the series finale on Sunday. Fowler's game-winning hit helped Nebraska salvage one win in the three-game series, after Minnesota won both games of Saturday's doubleheader. In a back-and-forth affair on Sunday, Nebraska had two separate leads in the first five innings, while Minnesota held a 3-2 lead after four innings. After scoring twice in the top of the fifth, the Huskers were just four outs away from a victory before Tyler Walker hit a game-tying solo home run with two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning. That sent the game to extra innings and set the stage for Fowler's dramatics. RECAP
