Michigan softball pitcher Meghan Beaubien throws perfect game in final regular season series
College softball’s regular season is coming to end, and Michigan seems to be peaking at the right time.
Wolverines pitcher Meghan Beaubien threw a perfect game vs. Rutgers on Saturday afternoon in the team’s penultimate game of the season.
Michigan run-ruled the Scarlet Knights, so it was only a five-inning affair. But Beaubien sat down all 15 batters in order to secure the milestone.
