Default Ohio State 3 Illinois 2 (Softball)
Ashley Goodwin, who was 3-for-3 on the afternoon, singled through the right side in the top of the third and scored Alex Bayne, who was hit by a pitch to open the inning. The next batter, Becca Gavin, made it 2-0 when she doped a single in to left field and brought Emily Clark home. Gavin was 2-for-3 on the afternoon with a pair of singles.

Illinois got a run back in the bottom of the third when Ruby Rivera doubled deep to left field, allowing Alyssa Gunther to score from second. After a walk to Nicole Evans, Stephanie Abello flew out to deep center field to end the inning.

The Illni tied the game with another two-out RBI in the bottom of the fourth. Rowan McGwire walked with one out and was pinch run for by Jill Nicklas, who eventually came home on a Maddi Doane single to right.

Lilli Piper hit a go-ahead home run in the top of the seventh inning to back up a four-hit gem from pitcher Shelby McCombs as Ohio State earned a 3-2 win over Illinois.

The Buckeyes took the series 2-1 against #22 Illinois.
