Polk (9-3) had no answer for freshman phenom Jordan Farmer, who pushed her record to 8-1 on the season. Farmer struck out 11 batters in a complete-game shutout, surrendering three hits and two walks in seven innings of work.

&dquo;I give a lot of credit to Jordan Farmer. I thought she pitched a great game,&dquo; said Lady Wolverine coach Jeff Wilson.

The Lady Cardinals (9-3) were led offensively by Kansas Wofford, who went 4-for-4 on the day with a walk and two runs scored.
