Tyson allowed seven hits and struck out nine in extending her scoreless streak to 15 2/3 innings, dating back to last year’s NCAA Regional. This marks the third time in her career that Tyson has thrown back-to-back shutouts.

Sophomore Becki Toth went 2-for-4, keeping her batting average at .500, and led off both Mule rallies. She ignited a three-run first inning with her fourth double of the season and started the two-run sixth by singling and stealing second. Sophomore Jaclyn Maser had RBI singles in both frames.

Junior Kelly Berg drove in a run in the top of the sixth, then preserved Tyson’s shutout in the seventh with a great running catch in right-center with a runner on second.

Against Thiel, the Mules trailed 5-0 heading into the sixth before rallying for four runs. Junior Meghan Woods capped the big inning with a two-out, three-run pinch-hit double, but she was stranded at second. Toth went 3-for-4 with a double.
