REGULAR-SEASON MEETINGS:

· APRIL 9, 2005: St. Thomas extended its winning streak over the Cardinals to eight games with a 7-0, 8-2 sweep of vs. SMU. St. Thomas pounded three SMU pitchers for 15 runs and 23 hits. The biggest Tommie bully proved to be Nikki Conway -- younger sister of SMU senior Krista Conway -- who went 6-for-8 with a pair of home runs and three RBIs. And while UST's bats were feasting on SMU pitcher, Tommie pitchers had the Cardinals swinging at air -- literally ­ as SMU struck out 26 times in the two games. The Tommies got all the offense they would need with a single run in the first inning of Game 1. But UST wasn't about to stop there, scoring once in the third, twice in both the fourth and fifth, and once in the sixth to complete the shutout win. SMU appeared to have righted its ship in Game 2, as Amy Lang delivered a one-out, two-run home run to right center to give the Cardinals an early 2-0 advantage. That, however, was all the offense SMU would manage -- and the Tommies were just warming up, answering the Cardinals' two-run first with two runs of their own, then added three in the second and single runs in the third, fourth and sixth to move to 4-0 in the MIAC. · APRIL 13, 2005: The Cardinals' Jenni Gutterman belted a bases-loaded triple in the fifth inning and Nikki Jung added a two-run vs. double in the sixth to account for all of SMU's runs in the Cardinals' 5-3 win over Gustavus in the opening game of their MIAC doubleheader And the Cardinals picked up right where Gutterman and Jung left off in the nightcap, banging out 12 hits and scoring nine runs in completing the sweep wtih a 9-1, six-inning victory in Game 2. Jenny Schipp, who tossed a complete-game four-hitter in winning Game 1, was the offensive sparkplug in Game 2, collecting three hits in four at-bats, while also driving in a pair of runs -- one on a third-inning single and the other on a sixth-inning double. Gutterman and Jung each added a pair of hits and Mandy Tschernach drove in two runs as the Cardinals scored two runs in the third, three in the fourth, one in the fifth and three more in the sixth to put the game away. Megan Wallisch picked up the Game 2 pitching win, allowing one run on five hits in five innings. Kelly Rodgers pitched a perfect sixth, striking out two of the three batters she faced. · APRIL 13, 2005: Tara Close went 3-for-3 with a triple and drove in both SMU runs as SMU slipped to a 2-1 win in Game 1. vs. The Cardinals left little doubt in the nightcap, scoring all six of their runs in the sixth inning en route to a sweep-clinching 6-0 victory. The Cardinals broke a scoreless tie in the top of the fourth inning in the opener, as Melissa Mondo doubled down the left-field line, moved to third on a ground out and scored on an RBI single by Close. The Pipers tied the game, 1-1, in the bottom of the fifth, before SMU plated the eventual game-winner in the top of the sixth when laced a triple to right-center, scoring Regan Cahanes. The Cardinals once again found themselves in a scoreless pitchers' duel in Game 2, before breaking through in the sixth. The Cardinals used five hits -- including a two-run double by Nikki Jung and two-run, pinch-hit single by Amy Lang -- and three Hamline errors to score their six runs. Offensively, SMU collected 20 hits in the doubleheader, led by Close, who picked up four hits in seven at-bats.

REGULAR-SEASON MEETINGS:

· APRIL 20, 2005: Gustavus used a three-run fifth-inning rally, capped by Julie Mahre's two-run double, and posted a 3-2 vs. win over St. Thomas for a split of their MIAC softball twinbill. The comeback win ended St. Thomas' 44-game MIAC winning streak. The last Tommie conference softball loss also came at home to Gustavus in April 2003. St. Thomas won 2-0 in the opener as Janet Nagle struck out 12 and tossed a one-hit shutout. Maria Bye drove in the first run with a two-out first-inning single and Carrie Enbree made it 2-0 with an RBI squeeze bunt in the sixth inning. Nagle set down the first 16 batters before Kristin Kunz singled in the sixth inning. The Toms took a 2-0 lead in Game 2 in the fourth on a single by Katie Wiberg, a hit by pitch, Embree's RBI single and a passed ball. Gustavus scored three in the top of the fifth. Audrey Lenoch singled, Dawn Lewis singled and Abby Bernstein had a squeeze bunt that made it 2-1 and she reached on a fielder's choice. Kunz singled and Mahre had a twoout double to make it 3-2. Joyce DeWitz earned the game-two save as she retired three of the four batters she faced. · APRIL 17, 2005: St. Thomas pounded 26 hits in posting an 11-3, 8-0 sweep of Hamline Both games were halted in six innings vs. by the eight-run rule. UST scored eight runs in the bottom of the sixth inning in game one, and four in the last of the sixth in game two. Amanda Gage went 3-for-5 on the day for Hamline, which saw its losing skid hit four games. The Pipers left 14 runners on base in 12 innings on the day and hit into one double play. In Game 1, Mandy Evans keyed an eight-run sixth inning with a homer and an RBI single. UST scored twice in the fourth to take a 3-1 lead. The Pipers scored twice with two out in the top of the sixth on a bases-loaded single by Kari Lenzendorf that tied the game 3-3. Evans led off the last of the sixth with a solo homer to left, her fifth of the season. The Tommies eventually sent 13 batters to the plate and went on to smack nine hits in the inning capped by Michelle Wong's basesloaded single that halted the game. Wong had five hits and reached in six plate appearances on the day. Carrie Embree went 2-for-3 with a homer in game two. Freshman Maria Bye allowed no runs on six hits with five strikeouts in game two. · APRIL 28, 2005: Hamline pitcher Niki Seal scattered four hits in a completegame shutout as Hamline beat Gustavus 2-0 to earn vs. a split in their MIAC DH. Gustavus took the first game 3-2. Seal struck out three and did not walk a batter in blanking the Gusties. The Pipers scored all the runs they would need in the first inning of Game 2 when Seal delivered a two-run single that scored Amanda Gage and Racheal Young. Gustavus threatened in the bottom of the first when Julie Mahre led off with a triple, but Seal worked out of the jam, getting a ground out and a pair of strikeouts to end the threat. All five runs in the opener were also scored in the first inning, as the Pipers jumped out to a 2-0 lead on an RBI fielder's choice by Emily Gross and a sacrifice fly by Seal. The Gusties took the lead for good in the bottom of the first, plating three runs. Audrey Lenoch's two-run double tied the game and Meghan Powers added a run-scoring triple for the final run of the game. Hamline was held to just three hits by Gustie starter Joyce DeWitz, who struck out three and walked two.
