With the season on the line, the Michigan softball team stepped up and delivered a dominant performance against University of Illinois-Chicago and it all started with one person: freshman lefty Meghan Beaubien.
Even though Saturday’s storm had long passed by the time Tera Blanco set foot on Alumni Field, the senior right-hander showed that when it rains, it pours.
With the Michigan softball team nursing a 1-0 lead heading into the fifth inning, it was time to make something happen. In the previous inning, Blanco was pulled from her pitching duties after Purdue loaded the bases. While she could no longer help in the circle, she could make something happen at the plate.
