Michigan dominates doubleheader with Penn State softball

Michigan jumped out to a 4-0 lead after Aidan Falk’s grand slam in the first inning, providing all the run support starting pitcher Sara Driesenga would need. Driesenga limited Penn State to three hits and struck out to in five innings to earn the win.

The Wolverines (41-4, 18-2) took control early and rolled to victory in the second game. Michigan scored three runs on four hits in the first inning, and starting pitcher Megan Betsa allowed three runs (two earned) in five innings for the win to complete a series sweep.
