Concordia pitcher Danielle Burke usually only needs only one run of support and the Falcons have been getting her that single tally early... and then relying on her dazzling effectiveness for the rest of the game.
In the first game of Sunday's doubleheader against Dominican, Jannelle Schroder singled to lead off the CUW first, stole second, went to third on Holly Zinnecker's sacrifice bunt, and scored on Sarah Cochran's single.
And that was all it took offensively for Burke to improve to 12-2 on the season and Concordia to up their best-ever season record to 27-8.
Dominican came to town with a 23-11 record but the Stars managed only 4 hits against Burke. Jori Cicale held CUW to 5 hits but saw her record fall to 10-7.
