A Look Back: Video Highlights from the War Eagle Classic
Freshman Brandi McGregor got to celebrate her birthday in Auburn, Ala., just over an hour away from her home in Sharpsburg, Ga.

March 4, 2013

There were plenty of highlights from Minnesota's trip to Auburn University's War Eagle Classic over the weekend, as the Gophers went 3-0 and had a no-hitter on Friday and a walk-off home run on Sunday.

Junior pitcher Sara Moulton was once again dominant. Her no-hitter against Middle Tennessee on Friday was her second in a row, and she wrapped up the tournament by striking out the first 11 Gardner-Webb batters on her way to tying her career-high with 15 K's on Sunday. For her performance, Moulton was named the Big Ten Pitcher of the Week for the second straight week.

Sophomore shortstop Tyler Walker was Minnesota's other nominee for recognition from the Big Ten after she batted .636 (7-for-11) with five runs scored, five RBI, two doubles and a pair of memorable home runs. Her solo shot to straight-away center field on Saturday helped the Gophers defeat the SEC's Auburn Tigers, and her two-run walk-off to right versus Gardner-Webb on Sunday gave Minnesota a 6-4 win.

Here's our weekly feature of video highlights from all the action, brought to you through the camera lens of the talented Michael Kyllo-Kittleson.
