  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Softball: Vierstra shuts out Bulls

The Miami RedHawks softball team (24-12, 15-2 MAC) continue to dominate the MAC, winning their ninth straight game with a shutout of Buffalo (15-16, 6-7 MAC).

Courtney Vierstra got the ball for the start against the Bulls. She pitched a complete game shutout with six strikeouts, while only allowing three hits. The game only lasted six innings due to the run rule being put in effect. The senior continues to impress in the circle for Miami.

Home runs were flying out of Nan Harvey Field in Buffalo with regularity. Maggie Murphy started the party off with a solo homer in the top of the second. In the fourth, Shelby Kunkel and Adriana Barlow both had solo shots as well. Holly Blaska hammered a two-run round-tripper in the top of the fifth. Finally, Allie Cummins hit a two-run shot in the top of the sixth to give Miami nine runs. Buffalo was unable to answer in the bottom of the inning and the game was called due to the run rule.

Miami’s title hopes are still going strong. They look to extend their winning streak with a series against the University of California (24-18) this coming weekend.

Some other series to watch this weekend:

Kent State (13-20, 4-9 MAC) at Toledo (9-28, 2-13 MAC)

Northern Illinois (11-21, 5-12 MAC) at Ohio (17-19, 11-6 MAC)

Akron (13-23, 8-7 MAC) at Bowling Green (22-11,8-5 MAC)

Central Michigan (17-19, 8-6 MAC) at Western Michigan (16-24, 6-8 MAC)

Ball State (15-23, 8-6 MAC) at Buffalo
