  • CLEARWATER, FL - For the second consecutive game, Rutgers was shutout, as Northwestern’s Courtnay Foster fired a one-hit shutout in the Wildcat’s 8-0 win over the Scarlet Knights (4-5) on day two of the Speedline Invitational in Clearwater, FL, on March 5.

    Foster was in command all game long, striking out six while walking none in six innings of work. Her perfect-game bid was broken up in the fifth when junior Stephanie Johannsen (Penn Vallbey, CA) singled up the middle with two outs.

    Northwestern (9-3) jumped on starter Leah Black (Rocky River, OH) in the first, scoring a pair of runs on three hits. Black (2-3) was unable to get on track and allowed a season- bhigh eight runs, six earned, on 12 hits and three walks. Leadoff hitter Shelia McCorkle led the Northwestern attack with three hits, two runs scored and a pair of stolen bases. Garland Cooper (1-for-3) ended the game on the eight-run rule when she sent a homerun to deep center in the bottom of the sixth for her second and third RBI of the day.

    Rutgers will finish play today with a game against Coastal Carolina (3-6) at 3:00 p.m.
