OFFICIAL GNAC RELEASE

Milardo, a right-handed hurler from Plantsville, picked up her first win of the 2019 season inside the circle in dominating fashion on Sunday in game two versus Bay Path in USJ's lone doubleheader of the week. Milardo fired a complete game, two-hitter and struck out seven Wildcats over five innings of work as the Blue Jays defeated Bay Path 9-0 to even their record to 7-7 on the year. The Saint Paul product didn't allow a Bay Path batter to get past second base in the victory, facing just six batters over the minimum and firing 57 strikes in 99 pitches.
