#BTNStandout: Michigan's Megan Betsa tosses complete-game gem

Michigan sophomore Megan Betsa has been nearly unhittable this season for the Wolverines. It was the same story on Saturday as Betsa tossed a complete-game gem, striking out 10 Northwestern batters and leading Michigan to an impressive 9-0 victory over the Wildcats in a Big Ten Conference Tournament semifinal matchup. Betsa allowed just one hit and didn’t walk a single batter in the victory. It marked her 11th double-digit strikeout game this season. With the win, Michigan will advance to the Big Ten Tournament championship game, where they will face the winner of today’s Nebraska-Iowa semifinal matchup. First pitch of

Michigan claims 2015 Big Ten Softball Tournament crown

Day 3 of the 2015 Big Ten Softball Tournament featured three outstanding games, but in the end, it was the Michigan Wolverines who took home the conference tournament crown.

#BTNStandout: Iowa's Shayla Starkenburg throws 2-hit shutout

Iowa pitcher Shayla Starkenburg threw a gem on Friday night in a Big Ten Tournament quarterfinal matchup against Minnesota. The Hawkeyes’ redshirt sophomore held the No. 2-seeded Gophers to just two hits and struck out four in a 2-0 win over Minnesota. The victory marked the first time Iowa has beaten Minnesota since back on May 12, 2012. Starkenburg now improves to 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA on the mound in the Big Ten Tournament. Iowa advances to play No. 3-seeded Nebraska in a semifinal game at 6 p.m. ET on Saturday. Well done, Shayla!  

Video: Michigan star Sierra Romero sets NCAA record for grand slams

No player in the history of NCAA softball has more grand slams than Sierra Romero. [ MORE: View our 2015 Big Ten Softball Tournament homepage ] The Michigan star hit her record 10th career grand slam in Michigan’s Big Ten tourney quarterfinal vs. Penn State on Friday afternoon. Best part: Romero is just a junior, meaning she will have many opportunities to pad her lead. Romero’s 10th bomb with the bases packed highlighted Michigan’s explosive 13-run second inning. If the top-seeded Wolverines hold on, they will face No. 4 Northwestern in the semifinals Saturday afternoon.

#BTNStandout: Kristen Hoppman leaves feet to take away would-be hit

Northwestern freshman Brooke Marquez probably thought she had a hit in her first at-bat in the Big Ten tournament Friday. [ MORE: View our 2015 Big Ten Softball Tournament homepage ] Purdue centerfielder Kristen Hoppman had other ideas, however. Hoppman, on a line drive hit right back up the middle, sprinted in a few steps and dove to rob Marquez of a base hit, perhaps an extra-base knock. The play wasn’t nearly as easy as the centerfielder made it look. The ball was drilled and likely knuckling on its way out to her. The winner of the Purdue-Northwestern game advances

Video: Iowa's Sammi Gyerman rips go-ahead home run vs. Rutgers

Iowa used a pair of long balls to erase a 3-1 deficit in its Big Ten tourney opener vs. Rutgers on Thursday night in Columbus, Ohio. [ MORE: View our 2015 Big Ten Softball Tournament homepage ] First, it was Kaitlyn Mullarkey blasting a two-run shot in the top of the sixth inning to tie the score. An inning later, Sammi Gyerman stepped to the plate and followed with another two-run homer, this one to put the Hawkeyes ahead 5-3, which proved to be the final ledger. Gyerman and the 10th-seeded Hawkeyes will face No. 2-seed Minnesota in the quarterfinals
