AMES, IOWA - Minnesota completed a doubleheader sweep on Wednesday afternoon, as it trounced Iowa State by a score of 13-1 in the second game at the Cyclone Sports Complex.

The Gophers combined to hit four doubles and a triple, and they scored in all but two innings of the second game. Combined, the Gophers scored 25 runs on 21 hits in the sweep, which improved their overall record to 28-15 this season despite having played just three home games.

Sophomore Kaitlyn Richardson went 3-for-4 with a double, three runs batted in and scored two runs, while freshman Kayla Wenner was 2-for-3 with a triple and two RBI. Sophomore Tyler Walker also went 2-for-3 at the plate and scored three runs.

In the circle, junior right-hander Sara Moulton improved her record to 24-9 by going 4.0 innings and scattering five hits with one earned run allowed - in the first inning. Moulton also struck out four with just one walk, as she earned the victory in both games of the doubleheader.

Freshman lefty Nikki Anderson pitched well in relief, allowing just one hit while striking out four (one walk) over the final three innings.

Minnesota travels to Ohio State for a three-game Big Ten series this weekend, beginning with a game at 5:00 p.m. CT on Friday.
