Soultz earns 20th win

Wednesday, April 2, 2008

The third-ranked DePauw softball team extended its win streak to 23 following a doubleheader sweep of Illinois Wesleyan by scores of 1-0 and 4-1. The Tigers improved to 23-1, while the Titans dropped to 11-3.

DePauw pitcher Megan Soultz broke her own single-season school record when she picked up her 20th win in shutting out Illinois Wesleyan in game one.

The Tigers struck in the first again in the nightcap as Davitt drew a two-out walk and scored on Rachel Gill's double to left center. They made it 3-0 in the third when Weeks reached on an infield error, stole second and scored on Davitt's single through the right side. Gill then delivered another run-scoring double to right.

In the seventh, Weeks singled, moved to second on Davitt's sacrifice bunt and scored on Gill's third double of the game, this time to right center.

DePauw totaled six hits led by Gill with three doubles and three RBI. Four different Illinois Wesleyan players finished with one hit each.

Soultz improved to 21-1 with the win.
