CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) — In a duel of two dominant pitchers, Drake’s NIcole Newman got the upper-hand in a 1-0 no-hit win over UNI. The victory extended the Bulldogs’ conference win streak to 17 straight games.
UNI’s Jaclyn Spencer came up just short in a phenomenal effort. Spencer allowed just one hit and struck out seven batters in the complete game effort. The only mark against her came in the third inning when a Spencer throwing error allowed Drake’s only run to score.
Newman, meanwhile, struck out 13 and kept the Panthers hit-less to pick up her 21st win on the season.
