Michigan Softball Salvages Split vs Iowa

Michigan Softball (30-4, 5-1) earned a split in their home opening series against Iowa behind a lights-out performance in the circle by Freshman, Jordan Taylor. Taylor fanned a career-high 14 Hawkeyes as she hurled a complete game shutout.

Nikki Nemitz led the way from the plate with a pair of singles, including a 2-run single in the third inning that gave the Wolverines the 3-0 lead. Angela Findlay plated Allesandra Giampaolo with a double in the first inning and that would be all that Michigan needed as the Hawkeyes never advanced a runner past second base.

I'm headed out to Relay for Life, but if they have wireless, we'll get you some of the highlights from today's game later on.

UPDATE: Thanks to the wonderful University of Michigan Housing Wireless Network, here are some highlights from the softball game today
