Freshman Audrey East sparked Butler's offense with solo home runs in the fourth and sixth innings.  The Bulldogs scored their other run in the second inning on a wild pitch.

East and sophomore Kristen Boros each had a pair of hits in the Butler win.

In the second game, freshman Taylor Lockwood pitched a complete-game shutout.  Boros led the offense with a solo home run and Cassie Rupel added a run batted in.
