Weekend Roundup

  • Central Arkansas' senior pitcher Kelsie Armstrong recorded her 1,000th career strikeout on Saturday. Armstrong recorded nineteen strikeouts through both games of a doubleheader, ending the day with 1,003 Ks.
  • There was a power barrage at Shea Field in Massachusetts over the weekend, as the NC State Wolfpack outscored Boston College 40-8 in three games. Wolfpack batters hit nineteen home runs over the weekend, led by junior Scout Albertson's four and senior Caitlin Dent's three.
  • Houston's Kendra Cullum took her 30th (yes, you read that right, 3-0) HBP of the season, and holds sole possession of 4th place in the NCAA record books. The all-time record  belongs to Mariah Gerhart, who played for Oklahoma State from 2008-2011.
  • St. John's' senior shortstop Chrissy Montez tied the school single-season record for home runs with a pair of bombs against conference foe Rutgers on Senior Day. The Red Storm have four games left, and Montez has a matchup against Fordham and a three-game set vs. Villanova to hit her 16th home run and break the record.
  • A sixth-inning solo home run by Boise State's Devon Bridges on Sunday was the junior first baseman's thirty-eighth career bomb, a number that puts her atop the Bronco record books in that category.
  • The LSU Tigers and Arizona State Sun Devils both enjoyed stellar weeks, as both teams swept highly-ranked conference foes. LSU hosted Alabama, and swept a three-game set by a combined score of 9-6. ASU showed just how badly Cal misses Jolene Henderson, as they won all three games by a combined score of 26-5, with two run-rule victories on Friday and Saturday.
