Perfection

Dayton 3-29 It was English's first perfect game of her career. She tossed a no-hitter last season.

DAYTON, Ohio -- Dayton completed the weekend sweep of Rhode Island on Sunday behind a five-inning perfect game from Kayla English.

It is the first perfect game in UD history and the second no-hitter for English. She threw one against Wright State last season on March 27, 2014. English earned her 11th win of the season and and sixth win in a row.

Dayton (22-10, 7-1 Atlantic 10) got the scoring started against the Rams (1-18, 0-5 A-10) in the first on a Gabrielle Snyder two-run home run. It was her second home run of the season.

The Flyers exploded for eight runs in the third inning. It started with an RBI double from Tiffany Ricks, followed by a Kayla Haberstich RBI single that scored another run. Kennedy Haynes kept things going with a two-RBI double to left center field.

Jordan Jennings came off the bench and added an RBI single. That was followed by a Natalie Mariano two-RBI triple, her second triple of the season. The inning was capped off by a Snyder RBI double.

UD finished with 10 hits on the day, with two-hits each by Mariano, Snyder and Haberstich.
