Michigan 2, Northwestern 1
Sophomore pitcher Sara Driesenga threw a complete-game two-hitter for the No. 10 University of Michigan softball team against Northwestern tonight at the Wilpon Complex, home of Alumni Field. U-M locks up a 2-1 victory and the sixth consecutive Big Ten crown for the Wolverines, who have the most conference titles all-time with 16 and are the only team to ever win six consecutively. Driesenga struck out the first two Wildcats batters of the game and closed the game with a called third strike -- her eighth punchout on the night. RECAP

Iowa 4, Purdue 3 (9)
The University of Iowa softball team defeated Purdue, 4-3, in nine innings on Friday at the Boilermaker Softball Complex in the opening game of its final regular season series. Tied 3-3 in the top of the ninth, Bradi Wall scored the game-winning run on a sacrifice fly by Michelle Zoeller. The Hawkeyes eclipse their win total from a year ago when they finished 27-26 overall. The 28th victory marks the most for Iowa since finishing 42-16 in 2009. The Hawkeyes won 25 games in 2010, and 27 in each of the last two seasons. RECAP

Illinois 6, Ohio State 4

The win pushes Illinois ahead of Ohio State and into sole control of sixth place in the Big Ten standings, sitting at 21-25 (10-11 Big Ten). With the loss, Ohio State drops to 32-20 (9-12 Big Ten).
