The No. 6-ranked University of Michigan softball team finally broke through against Virginia Tech's Angela Tincher in the sixth inning and won the first game of the NCAA Super Regional by a 1-0 score Saturday at the Wilpon Complex, home of Alumni Field. After a rocky first inning, freshman pitcher Jordan Taylor threw a three-hit shutout and struck out seven without a walk to improve to 31-3.

No. 2 Arizona State scored a pair of runs in each of the first two innings before extending its lead for a 9-0, six-inning win Saturday afternoon at Farrington Stadium, eliminating No. 11 Northwestern from the 2008 NCAA Tournament with its victory in game two of the Tempe Super Regional.
