Cassidy Boyle was 2 for 3 in a solid USF mid-week win.

The Bulls, 7-3, won 4 to 0 over Eastern Michigan. After the game was pushed back after the Bay area got hammered by a rain front, the Bulls did not show any signs of rust and took care of business against EMU. 

In the 2nd inning, Kristen Wyckoff got things started with an RBI sac fly to put USF ahead 1 to 0. USF loaded the bases after that, but could not get another run across. However, they were able to get it going in the next inning.

In the third inning, Sam Worrell hit an RBI triple to put USF ahead 2 to 0. Following her, Morgan Gross hit an RBI double followed by another RBI double from Cassidy Boyle to put the Bulls ahead for good 4 to 0. The offense did just enough and the pitching did the rest in the circle.

Gross was 2 for 3 with a double, an RBI and scored 2 runs. Boyle was 2 for 3 with the RBI double while Wyckoff was 1 for 3 overall.

Cheyenne Eggens (3-1) went 4 innings, allowing 3 hits, and struck out 6 batters. Susan Wysocki went 1 inning, allowing 1 hit while Hannah Parker worked a clean inning. Kalen McGill went the final inning, allowing 1 hit and struck out 2 batters to close it out.

USF will head to Deland to take part in the Stetson Tournament starting with a game against Mississippi State on Friday night (game begins at 6:30 PM) in the first of four games. USF is starting to get on a bit of a roll, but this tournament is going to be tough with Ole Miss possibly being the toughest team in the tournament and they get to face them twice.
