Maryland softball took three of four games in a weekend series against Michigan State improving to 11-13 on the year.

The Terps dropped the first game Friday afternoon, 2-0, but came back that evening to run-rule the Spartans, 9-1. On Saturday, the Terps continued their hot streak by winning the first game, 6-1, and walking-off in dramatic fashion, 5-4, in the final game of the series.

In the circle, senior transfer Jennifer Brann was dominant in both games Saturday. The transfer from Penn pitched six innings in the first game, allowing only two hits and one earned run. In the second game, Brann came into the action for the final two innings, shutting down the Spartans by not allowing a hit and striking out three.

Freshman Jaeda McFarland also had a great series. Defensively, the center fielder had eight putouts and an impressive play to not give Michigan State the lead in the final game. McFarland also had five hits at the plate, including a triple that set up her scoring the game-winning run Saturday night.

The team will head on the road to Ann Arbor next weekend for a four game series against Michigan.
