The 2-0 win was the Bears’ eighth clean sheet this season.
WashU played with authority over the ball and an aggressive offense for most of the game.
The Bears made the last game of Coach Larry Kindbom’s career one to remember, sending their head coach into retirement with a blowout victory over Carroll University, 62-14. Wash. U. finishes the season 7-3, their 24th winning season in Kindbom’s 31 years coaching the team.
By posting four consecutive shutouts, the No. 15 Washington University softball team came away with four convincing wins this weekend. Highlighted by two complete-game performances from junior starting pitcher Annie Pitkin, it was the first time since 2008 that the Bears registered four straight shutouts.
Just over a week ago, the Washington University softball team suffered two of its toughest losses of the season with a pair of sixth-inning collapses. But the Bears turned it around Friday, opening the afternoon with a 6-4 win and coming right back with an 11-0 win in five innings later that night.
With two losses in three games earlier this week, dropping its season record to 17-14, the Washington University baseball team has all but closed the door on its playoff chances.
An 8-0 drubbing at the beginning of a tournament might spoil the weekend for many softball teams. But the No. 15 Washington University Bears did not let their Friday loss to No. 8 Augustana College get them down. Wash. U. recorded only one hit and three errors in the defeat, but Saturday was a different story for the Bears, as they toppled Augustana 10-8 in nine innings and thrashed Fontbonne University 14-2 in five innings.
