TAMPA – Aces Sara Nevins and Lindsey Richardson combined to throw a two-hit shutout to help the Bulls complete a series sweep at Pitt on Sunday afternoon.
Nevins (16-5) allowed a hit and struck out seven in the first six innings of the Bulls’ 5-0 victory at Petersen Sports Complex. Richardson struck out one in an inning of relief as USF allowed just one run in all three games combined.
