Allowing no runs is a good way to assure victory.

The University of Jamestown softball did it twice on Monday.

Hanna Dunnigan and Brittany Rheault fired consecutive two-hit shutouts, blanking Mayville State 6-0 and 8-0. The games were played in Wahpeton in hopes of better weather, which did not really materialize. Still, the Jimmies racked up wins No. 31 and 32 on the season.

"Hanna and Brittany were pretty much in control," UJ coach Kevin Gall said. "They did a really nice job controlling the games."

Dunnigan dazzled again. The senior lefty piled up 11 strikeouts in seven innings for her 15th win of the season.

"There were never really any situations where they threatened to hurt her," Gall said. "She was pretty good."
Kylie Macaig had two hits and scored twice. Tifani Schorzman drove in two runs.

Game 2 went just five innings. Rheault surrendered two hits, walked three and fanned three.

"She was spotting her pitches pretty good," Gall said. "If she ran into little problems, she was able to work her way out."

Emma Keller led the game off with a solo home run for the Jimmies. Schorzman added two hits and two more RBI. With the bases loaded in the third inning, Dunnigan delivered a bases-clearing triple.

"We had a bit of a different approach of just putting the ball in play and good things will happen," Gall said. "It's boring, but just trust your abilities and things tend to work out."

The Jimmies head to Valley City for a doubleheader on Saturday before hosting the Vikings on Sunday.
