Fordham almost doubles up on perfection

May, 3, 2011
A look at a few of the weekend's biggest numbers:

Fordham (38-17): Senior Chelsea Plimpton came within one out of giving the Rams consecutive perfect games in a doubleheader sweep of St. Peter's. After junior Jen Mineau threw the fourth perfect game of her career in the first game, Plimpton was perfect in the second until giving up an infield single with two out in the final inning.

Oklahoma (35-16): In a 5-2 win against Texas, sophomore Keilani Ricketts not only struck out 10 to set a school single-season record for strikeouts, but also hit a game-winning two-run single. Ricketts has 367 strikeouts on the season.

Auburn (36-15): By winning two of three against Georgia over the weekend, the Tigers won their first series against a top-five team. Senior Kelley Smiley went for 4-for-8 with three RBIs in the series.

California (34-9): Junior Jamia Reed led the Bears to their first series sweep against UCLA since 1998 by going 9-for-11, and hitting a walk-off single in the final game of the series.

Illinois (22-20): Senior Hollie Pinchback hit three home runs in a series sweep against Northwestern, including a walk-off on Saturday.
