Wisconsin sophomore pitcher Meghan McIntosh's 13-strikeout, shutout performance against North Dakota in game two of a doubleheader on Thursday was named the No. 4 Play of the Week on the Big Ten Network's Diamond Report, which originally aired on Sunday.

In throwing the first shutout of her career, McIntosh yielded just six hits and walked none in her sixth complete game of the year. The Sierra Vista, Ariz., native recorded a strikeout in every inning, struck out the side in the second and fanned two batters each in the third, fifth, sixth and seventh innings.

McIntosh's 13 strikeouts are the most for a Badger pitcher since Letty Olivarez tied a school record with 17 against Minnesota on May 12, 2010.

Coupled with the Badgers' 5-0 win in game one of the doubleheader, Wisconsin recorded back-to-back shutouts for the first time since April 26 and April 28 of 2006. In addition, in the doubleheader McIntosh and Cassandra Darrah combined to throw 21 strikeouts while issuing zero walks and giving up just eight hits in 14 innings of work.
