LATEWEDNESDAY
TENNESSEE SWEEPS
Hannah Akamine hit two home runs in the first game Rainey Gaffin threw a no-hitter in her first collegiate start in the circle in the second game to lead No. 3/2 Tennessee to a pair of wins over Wright State on Wednesday at Lee Stadium. Tennessee (17-1) took a 9-0, six-inning win in the first game after Akamine hit two home runs and Megan Geer hit a walk-off, two-run homer to left field to end the game in the sixth. Ellen Renfroe tossed a nine-strikeout, six-inning shutout to earn her 10th win of the season.  Gaffin was brilliant in the circle in Game 2, tossing a six-strikeout no-hitter over six frames to lead UT to an 8-0 win over Wright State. Gaffin is the first UT pitcher to throw a no-no in her first collegiate start in the circle since Monica Abbott did it on Feb. 5, 2004, against Saint Mary’s. The no-hitter was the 45th in Tennessee softball history. It was UT’s first no-hitter since Ellen Renfroe threw one against Utah State in a 10-0 (5) win on Feb. 8, 2013.

MICHIGAN
Sierra Romero went 3-for-3 — including a home run and a double — and knocked in five runs in No. 5 Michigan’s 9-4 triumph at No. 4 UCLA, which was previously unbeaten in 17 games to begin 2014.

–Escobedo 1H, 9K, 5 IP.  LP Megan Betsa. Bottom 3rd: Two out, Caporuscio singled; Kemp singled, Girard reached on an error by Romero at short, a run scored.  In the 5th, Steele was hbp; Coyle doubled, rbi.  The Sun Devils racked 9 hits. Escobedo had a no-hitter into the 6th when Sappingfield reached on an infield hit just beyond everyone’s grasp.
Washington def Michigan 7-1
–After being limited to one hit vs Arizona State, the Wolverines rapped 10 hits but the result was only marginally better  a single run.  All the more surprwing given Michigan’s 9-4 triumph over #3 UCLA last night.  UW racked 15 hits and was in control throughout,thanks to a grand slam home run in bottom 1st by Whitney Jones.  Twice in later innings the Huskies loaded the bases and might have reached run-rule butstranded three runners each time.
Texas def Houston 5-1

CS Fullerton 5, San Jose State 2
— The Trojans took a 2-0 lead, top 2nd, on an error, Estrada rbi double, and Akey single.  The Titans gained the lead with 4 runs in the 3rd, aided by five SJSU errors and rbi single by Taukeiaho.  Fullerton scored again in the 4th. WP Christin Washington.
