PALO ALTO, CALIF. - Junior pitcher Sara Moulton held Pacific scoreless for her sixth shutout of the season, and junior center fielder Bree Blanchette turned Minnesota's first hit of the game into its lone run, as the Gophers defeated Pacific, 1-0, in the first game of Stanford's Louisville Slugger Classic.

Moulton (11-4) scattered three hits and struck out seven Tigers in the complete-game victory. She recorded four strikeouts in the first two innings, and had to work around some trouble in the seventh to pick up Minnesota's sixth-straight win.

Blanchette, a teammate of Moulton's at Eagan High School, led off the bottom of the fifth with a single to center for Minnesota's first hit of the game. After stealing second base, Blanchette advanced to third with one out on a sacrifice bunt by senior catcher Kari Dorle, and then scored the game's lone run when freshman designated player Paige Palkovich reached on an error.

That proved to be all the support Moulton would need, as Pacific's only base runner in the sixth was thrown out by Dorle trying to steal second base, and Moulton tip-toed her way out of a bases-loaded situation in the seventh inning.

That final frame opened with a pinch-hit single by Pacific's Sara Anderson, and Moulton later hit a pair of batters to load the bases with two outs. But the Gophers' junior right-hander was able to get Megan Allen to pop up to Erika Smyth at second base to end the game.
