Buffalo Softball cruises to 9-0 Friday win over Bowling Green

UB Athletics

When your only complaint is that the offense could have done more in a 9-0, mercy-rule-shortened softball win, you've had a good day.

Charlotte Miller was in control from the pitcher's circle and the bottom of the UB order poured on the hits and runs as the Bulls put the leadoff runner on base in each of their four innings to move back to .500 (6-6) in the MAC.

Miller needed to be sharp early on, as the Bulls only scored once in the first two innings despite six baserunners, and left more runs on the board than the two more they scored in the third when freshman RBI machine Katie Weimer in an off day left the bases loaded to end both the second and third innings.

Miller would only surrender two hits in a performance that could weather any offensive inefficiency, and UB scored plenty more, anyway.

After stranding eight total runners in the first three innings, UB went 4-5 with runners in scoring position in the fourth, with the one slip up still scoring a run as Courtney Gilbert's groundout brought in Kenzie Koch.

All told, Ashton Earnhardt, Danielle Lallos, Koch, and Lauren Gambone combined to go 7-10 with 8 runs and 5 RBI on the day, and Savanna Norcio had a day that's become all too normal at the top of the order, going 3-3 with 3 RBI herself.

UB will take on Bowling Green, whose catcher reportedly had the flu and couldn't find a competent pitcher today, twice tomorrow to close out the series.
