Holly Hesse earns 700th career win when Bears sweep Redbirds

Missouri State head coach Holly Hesse picked up career wins No. 699 and 700 when the Missouri State softball team shut out the Redbirds in both halves of a doubleheader at Illinois State.

The Bears piled up the runs in an 11-0 five-inning game one victory and got a late home run to cushion the lead for a 4-0 win in game two. It was the first time the Bears shut out Illinois State in both ends of a doubleheader since 1993. The 11-run output was the highest against Illinois State in 104 all-time meetings.
