Two swings helped the Butler softball team sweep St. Bonaventure last weekend to start its conference season.
Butler (10-12, 2-0) trailed in the first game before coming back to defeat the Bonnies 2-1 on senior first baseman Devin Dearing’s first home run of the season.
Senior pitcher Jenny Esparza got the win on the mound, allowing three hits and zero walks.
In the second game of the doubleheader, Butler fell behind again early before sophomore infielder Kristen Boros hit a grand slam to give the Bulldogs the lead and eventual 6-3 win.
It was Butler’s eighth win in its last nine games.
Today’s game against Eastern Illinois was canceled. The Bulldogs will be back in action at Dayton tomorrow at 3 p.m.
