Collegian: UMass softball takes two, sweeps Dayton

Daily Collegian softball writer Marc Jean-Louis spent the day at Sortino Field on Saturday and took in UMass' doubleheader sweep of Dayton as the Minutewomen completed a 4-0 week and evened their A-10 record to 2-2.

     After picking up a convincing 9-4 win in the first game of a doubleheader on Saturday, the Massachusetts softball team continued its stride in Game 2. Thanks to a five-run rally in the bottom of the fourth inning, highlighted by a pinch-hit two-run home run by Tiffany Meeks, the Minutewomen completed the doubleheader sweep of Dayton with a 5-2 win at Sortino Field Saturday afternoon.
