Sophomore Lexi Overstreet smacked a 3-run home run at the top of the third to give UT a 9-0 lead, while sophomore Rainey Gaffin followed with a solo HR, stretching the Lady Vols' lead to 10-0. Madison Shipman capped of the third inning with a 2-run homer, marking the sixth home run for Tennessee in the game to break the UT single-game home run record.

Ellen Renfroe (28-6) threw five scoreless innings to earn the victory and her 10th shutout of the year. She allowed just two hits while striking out four.
