Just one day after Michigan softball pitcher Meghan Beaubien tossed a no-hitter in the NCAA regional opener against Seattle University, the Wolverines had a quick turnaround to play against the No. 16 seeded Washington Huskies.

The game was scoreless heading into the sixth inning when Michigan’s Lou Allan and Taylor Bump hit back-to-back solo homers to give the Wolverines the 2-0 lead. But in the bottom portion of the inning, Washington managed a solo shot of its own, cutting the lead to 2-1.

But after that solo shot in the sixth, Michigan starting pitcher Alex Storako closed it out in the seventh to preserve the complete game victory for the Wolverines. She finished the game with 13 strikeouts, three hits, one earned run and one walk.

Head coach Carol Hutchins and her squad will play again tonight at 8 p.m. and are looking for their first tournament regional title since 2016. In their way — the Washington Huskies...yet again.
