Eastern's (19-1) winning streak is the second-longest in school history behind the record 27-game streak set by the 1988 team which finished 35-7.

Senior right-hander Molly Rathbun of Hebron won her 12th straight decision and 13th in 14 decisions this year with her fifth shutout of the season in the opener, then struck out two in the seventh inning of the nightcap for her third save to preserve the first collegiate win of freshman righty Erin Miller of Waterford. Through Sunday's games, Rathbun ranked second nationally in ERA and least hits per game, and third in strikeouts per game and Arielle Cooper was rated ninth in home runs per game.
