TUCSON--Eastern Michigan opened its season with a 6-0 victory over Drake (0-7) in Arizona's Worth Wildcat Invitational softball tournament Friday afternoon.
Eagles pitcher Marcy Mobley held the Bulldogs to four hits and struck out six for the shutout victory.
Julie Stoll hit a bases-loaded double in the top of the first to give Eastern Michigan a 3-0 lead it held until the top of the seventh inning.
The Eagles scored three runs without a hit to finish the scoring. An walk put Genny Hahn on base and she scored on an error by the shortop. A double steal by Jilian Raines and Christie Koetser put two more runners on when the catcher threw the ball away at third and the leftfielder let it get past.
